CONCORD, N.H. -- New Hampshire Secretary of State Billy Gardner said he cannot forsee any situation where he would make up his mind on a primary date by after the end of November.
Gardner told a small gathering of local reporters that he could make his decision as early as next week and as late as November 15, a day after an important deadline in Michigan, the last state that needs to make a move.
"It's all about Michigan," Gardner said.
Many observers believe that the primary could be held on January 8th, but Gardner did not let on either way.
"But I will announce a date in November," said Gardner. "Unless something else comes up."
