Today, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley and Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price released the following joint statement in response to developments in the Democratic presidential primary regarding the early states:

“We are excited that this Democratic presidential nomination contest has so many qualified candidates who all have plans to grow our economy, make quality health care more accessible, and make college more affordable, and we are certain that Granite Staters, Iowans, and other early state voters are eager to ask Michael Bloomberg about his plans to move our states and our country forward. We hope that they will have that opportunity.”
