“New Hampshire is Watching”

Union Leader lead editorial ups pressure on Romney by calling on him to join Nevada boycott.

Not an easy call for Romney. He can't afford to lose New Hampshire, but he needs a win (and a win that the media actually counts) in Nevada to offset potential losses in Iowa and South Carolina. He won the Silver State last time and got almost no credit. The Democrats made Nevada a big deal in 2008, but Harry Reid used every measure of influence to get the candidates invested. Even with Tuesday's debate, there's been no comparable commitment from any of the candidates to the state this time. If Romney agrees to the boycott, New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner could basically ignore Nevada and schedule his primary for January 10.
