The state’s top election official took the first step to set the date of the first-in-the-nation 2020 primary Wednesday, alerting candidates that on Oct. 30 they can start signing up to run.
“We are now heading on the path to setting the official date of the primary,” Gardner said.
During an interview, Gardner stressed he retained the power to decide when to set the date, but he agreed “at the moment” there was no obstacle for that primary to be Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2020.
