Campaigns at Christmas looking more possible

EXETER, N.H. (AP) -- Nevada's jump ahead in the presidential
nominating calendar is forcing new rounds of finger pointing and
political threats. Some worry the biggest losers may turn out to be
voters.

Nevada officials plan to hold their presidential caucuses on Jan. 14. That forces other states to rethink the timing of their own elections.

And it's looking more and more likely that Iowa and New Hampshire could host the nation's first presidential contests in the midst of the coming holiday season.

That's a month sooner than expected. And it's unprecedented in
the modern history of presidential politics.

Political observers say voters will have less time to learn
about the candidates.

New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner says his state's
primary could be in late December. Iowa's caucuses would be even
earlier.
