The primary election schedule tango came a step closer to its grand finale yesterday, as New Hampshire held tight to its traditional role as the “first in the nation” primary election. New Hampshire’s Secretary of State annouced New Hampshireites will vote January 8th, five days after the Iowa caucus.

The Michigan Supreme Court also ruled that state could vote January 15th, which is apparently what was holding up New Hampshire. The New York Times has the full story.

Happy Thanksgiving.
