In New Hampshire today the Union Leader publisher puts up a front-page editorial telling candidates to pick sides: the Granite State or Michigan.
Publisher Joe McQuaid calls out Mitt Romney specifically and ends by writing:
"Candidates can influence the calendar, and they should use their clout to help preserve the tradition of retail politics that only New Hampshire's primary provides. Romney has said he wouldn't "walk away from Michigan." But if that primary is earlier than Jan. 15, he needs to reconsider. If not, others can make a good case that they, not Romney, are from the "New Hampshire wing'' of the Republican Party."
Speaking of the primary calendar, the Globe writes about the growing speculation over a December primary and what that means for the campaings.
