Democrats in the state launched a write-in campaign in an attempt to prevent an electoral embarrassment for the president as he runs for a second term in the White House.
Biden, last year, proposed a nominating calendar for the 2024 election cycle that would move New Hampshire from its first-in-the-nation standing, and replace it with South Carolina—a much more diverse state that Biden won in a landslide in 2020. That win ultimately catapulted him to the Democratic nomination and eventually the White House.
In the 2020 New Hampshire Primary, though, Biden came in fifth place.
But New Hampshire ignored the proposal and moved its primary up, in accordance with a state law mandates that its presidential primary be held seven days ahead of a similar contest.
