The 2024 election was just thrown into chaos.
Joe Biden was removed from the ballot after one shocking ruling.
Now Republicans are celebrating this victory that nobody expected.
New Hampshire has announced they will not put Joe Biden on the ballot this year.
Here’s the background – for years, New Hampshire has held the first primary election in the nation, following Iowa, which technically holds a caucus and not a primary.
This has been true on both the Democrat and Republican side, allowing these small states a chance to evaluate candidates face-to-face instead of just in TV ads.
But Democrats aren’t happy with this anymore since New Hampshire doesn’t have enough “racial diversity” that’s so important to garner the votes they need nowadays.
So they decided to strip New Hampshire of being the first primary state in the nation and gave it to South Carolina instead.
Naturally, New Hampshire was not too happy about this.
But Joe Biden didn’t expect them to fight back.
Now he’s being forced by party rules to not participate in the New Hampshire primary.
According to NBC News, “President Joe Biden will not file to be on the primary ballot in New Hampshire this election cycle, his 2024 campaign told the state Democratic Party on Tuesday.”
“The DNC Rules & Bylaws Committee sent out guidance Tuesday advising Democratic campaigns to refrain from filing to be on the primary ballot in New Hampshire, a source familiar with the events said. The Democratic National Committee released a plan this year to make South Carolina the first presidential primary voting state following Biden’s recommendation, overtaking Iowa and New Hampshire, but New Hampshire law requires the state to hold the country’s first primary.”
It’s stunning that the DNC would go to these extremes to punish a small state for their decision about when to hold the primary election.
But the DNC is a notoriously heavy-handed organization, as evidenced by the 2016 primary when they put their foot down to ensure Hillary Clinton got the nomination over Bernie Sanders.
The article continues, “DNC Chair Jamie Harrison said in February that the new primary calendar ‘puts Black voters at the front of the process in South Carolina.’ He added, ‘The Democratic Party looks like America, and so does this proposal.’”
Harrison, of course, is from South Carolina, which may have played a role in his decision to make South Carolina the first primary state in the nation.
But this decision makes it almost certain that Joe Biden loses the New Hampshire primary, which will be an embarrassment for the incumbent president.
It’s another blow to Biden’s 2024 presidential campaign, and it could cost him bigtime.
