President Joe Biden will not be on the ballot in New Hampshire
President Joe Biden will not be on the ballot in New Hampshire, the first primary election of the 2024 cycle, but Democrats from the state say there is a path forward — though a challenging one — for the president to clinch their contest.
The president “is obligated as a Democratic candidate for President to comply with the Delegate Selection Rules for the 2024 Democratic National Convention” the letter, obtained by ABC News, said, while noting he “looks forward to having his name on New Hampshire’s general election ballot.”
The first insult, in the eyes of some New Hampshire Democrats, came when the DNC approved in February a 2024 early nominating schedule that begins in South Carolina — the state that jumpstarted Biden’s campaign in 2020 — and moves New Hampshire to vote concurrently with Nevada as the second primary state in the nation. New Hampshire Democrats have resisted the changes, maintaining that the restructuring breaches state law that asserts New Hampshire must be the first primary in the nation.
