CONCORD, N. H. — the White house hopefuls were streams throughout the year on the state that holds the first primary in the race for the White house.

But this is in the New Hampshire primary is real.

As of Wednesday, the presidential candidates start trekking to the New Hampshire Secretary of state’s office on the second floor of the historic State House in Concord, as the two-and-a-half-week deadline for filing for the primary is underway.


“The deadline for submission is the starter’s gun to the finish line of our first-in-the-nation primary,” said Jim Merrill, a longtime New Hampshire-based GOP consultant and veteran of George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, and Marco Rubio presidential campaign.

During this quadrennial tradition in New Hampshire in the rule, the script that follows, there is an opportunity for some curveballs this time. Among the top questions: Will Hillary Clinton or Mike Bloomberg – scare of the political world, by last-minute trips to the granite state, the Nov. 15, the last day to file?

The chances for such a monumental surprise are extremely slim, but even without such a breaking news, there’s still lots of action will grab national and even international attention.

The candidate stops at the secretary of state ‘ s office to meet with longtime Secretary of state Bill Gardner, known throughout the country as the state officials who cherished to keep the lead for the next few decades, New Hampshire’s primary tradition alive. The candidates have to pay the $1,000 application fee and sign a paper to have stuff, your name placed on the primary ballot.

“It is a time when the center of the American political universe shrinks to the size of Bill Gardner’s office,” said the University of New Hampshire political science professor Dante Scala, a long-standing primary commentator.

Some of the candidates for the White house, have paid visits to the granite state for well over a year-or in the former REP John Delaney of Maryland in the case, the summer of 2017. But with only three-and-a-half months until the February primary, the campaign has now reached the prime time.


The submission is much more than a spiritual event. The larger campaigns hold rallies outside the State House, and pack the second floor corridor, to the Secretary of state, in the South West offices with a trailer. Dozens of reporters and photographers squeeze into the small office, capture the moment, and by tradition, the candidates with the questions of the media.

“After months of struggle, the whole thing is real, if the candidate walks said Bill Gardner’s door,” Scala.

And Merrill noted, “It is a time when the top fringe candidates, and all in-between gets a chance to get your name on the ballot in the crowded Chaos of Bill Gardner’s corner office”.

But more importantly, he stressed that “it also marks a new phase of the primary, when campaigns start to sprint here, and we really start to see which of the candidates are built to last, and which are destined to falter.”

Both hold rallies for supporters, which, according to their submissions.

The deadline for the filing comes amid speculation that 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton seriously on a third rod for the White house.

Clinton’s own comments and actions in recent weeks, sparked by the enthusiasm, fueling stories, you could possibly give your party’s nomination race at this late date, amid complaints from some Democratic party insiders that the current field of competitors, too weak, or progressive to take on Republican President Trump in the next year.


But a top-Granite State Democrat, says the concern with the field and a hunger for the other candidates is a topic of conversation that she heard.

“I haven’t heard anything about people, someone else would get in the race,” said Kathy Sullivan, a longtime Democratic National Committee member and former New Hampshire Democratic party chair.

Sullivan, who backed Clinton in 2008 and 2016 presidential campaigns, told Fox News, “I’m not taking this seriously. I love Hillary Clinton and I think you would be the President fantastic, but there are a lot of really good people running for President right now. I think it is too late in the day to get someone in the race.”

There is also some speculation concerning the former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg of New Hampshire visited in the last winter prior to the judgment from 2020 the White house.

“I have my reservations against people that run their campaigns, the promises that you make, you are not able to meet, and their willingness to admit what is possible and what is not, and the inconsistency of day-to-day,” he said, as he chided the White house hopefuls.

An adviser to Bloomberg refused to answer the question of whether granite staters should expect that a visit to the former mayor during the primary period for the submission.

And then there is former two-term Republican Gov., John Kasich of Ohio. There is some speculation that Kasich – a very loud Trump-critics, the never ruled out a primary challenge to the President in the year 2020, perhaps by visiting the State House during the period for the submission.

Kasich back to New Hampshire on Nov. 7 a speech at the University of New Hampshire in Durham as part of his latest book tour. But two top New Hampshire advisers to 2016 GOP presidential candidate, came in second trump in the primary say, Fox News, that there are no plans for the during of the trip for Kasich to travel from Durham to Concord.

On the same day Kasich in New Hampshire, Vice President Mike Pence, the head of the State House, in the name of his boss, President Trump.

High-profile surrogates have often submitted for the sitting President in the past cycles. Then-Vice-President Joe Biden, filed in 2011 on behalf of President Barack Obama in the 2012 primary. And then-First Lady Hillary Clinton made the trip to Concord in the year of 1995 on the file, her husband, U.S. President Bill Clinton on the 1996 primary ballot.

For Pence, the journey on the next presidential election can.

Merrill noted that “this is a perfect example of a happy convergence of interests for Vice President, Pence — service in its traditional role as VP converge with his very real interest in the attention and friends in NH for his later campaign for the presidency in 2024, will be increased, which will begin approximately five minutes after the polling day in November 2020.”
