The date for the New Hampshire primary was set today. The NH vote will be one week after the Iowa Caucuses and will be followed in January by South Carolina and Nevada.

From CNN:

At long last, New Hampshire’s secretary of state has set the first-in-the-nation primary for Jan. 10, restoring order to the primary calendar and preserving the state’s early voting status for another presidential cycle.

Bill Gardner praised New Hampshire’s traditional first primary in front of a room packed with cameras and reporters in his long-time state house office.
The new Jan. 10 primary date is more than a month earlier than New Hampshire’s original date in mid-February. The primary calendar was thrown into flux when Florida moved their contest to Jan. 31 forcing four other states, sanctioned by the party to vote early, to change their dates.

Here’s the latest Real Clear Politics polling averages in New Hampshire with 68 days to go:
