State Rep. Renny Cushing wants to add some more fire power to the endless fight by Granite Staters to safeguard New Hampshire’s cherished status as the home of the first primary in the race for the White House.
The longtime Democratic lawmaker from Hampton introduced a bill to create a permanent first-in-the-nation presidential primary commission.
“What we’d like to do is institutionalize the celebration and education about the first-in-the-nation primary,” Cushing told the Monitor on Thursday. “We constantly need to reinforce what’s great about New Hampshire’s brand and why New Hampshire does such a wonderful job with the first-in-the-nation primary.”
