Longtime New Hampshire secretary of state retiring

Longtime New Hampshire secretary of state retiring

Invoice Gardner, the longtime New Hampshire secretary of state who has served as his state’s chief elections official since 1976, introduced Monday that he could be stepping down within the coming days.

Gardner, a Democrat, has been a staunch defender of New Hampshire’s place on the high of the presidential nominating calendar as the primary state to carry its main. Maybe most famously, he threatened to maneuver the state’s 2012 presidential main to December of 2011 when Nevada tried to encroach on New Hampshire’s spot on the high of the calendar that yr.

“The 2 earlier secretaries of state have died in workplace, and I thought of that,” Gardner joked at a Monday press convention. “It wasn’t really [something] I aspired to be.”
