ELECTION 2020-NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY
CONCORD, N.H. — The longtime protector of the New Hampshire presidential primary could get ousted by the Legislature this week despite concerns from his supporters that replacing him could jeopardize the state’s coveted first-in-the-nation status. Lawmakers will decide on Wednesday whether to re-elect Bill Gardner as secretary of state, the official who oversees elections in New Hampshire. Gardner has held the position for 42 years and fiercely protects New Hampshire’s place on the primary calendar from other states that want the attention — and money — that comes along with being one of the first states to vote for president.

POLICE OFFICERS INVESTIGATED: A former New Hampshire police officer has pleaded guilty to reduced charges in connection to what prosecutors said was an illegal search of a convicted felon’s bedroom.
