John McCain's campaign sent this out to supporters today after New Hampshire announced it has finally picked its primary date. I don't seem to recall McCain sending anything similar out when Iowa selected its caucus date. Interesting...

The New Hampshire Secretary of State just announced that on Tuesday, January 8th, 2008 New Hampshire will hold its first in the nation presidential primary.
That means in 47 days residents of New Hampshire will go to the polls to select the person they think should be the next president of the United States.
We have less than 7 weeks to make sure that we are able to reach every voter in New Hampshire with John McCain's message of courageous service, experienced leadership, and bold solutions.
