The Manchester Union Leader has New Hampshire party leaders crowing that efforts by larger states to move up their primaries will only make the New Hampshire contests more critical.  "'Everything like this that happens is just making New Hampshire more important,' Democratic Chairman Kathy Sullivan said yesterday.  'The more states that move up, the more important we become and, ironically, the less important they become because there will be so many of them.'" 

The Hill points out that campaign ads will start running earlier than ever, perhaps especially in the big states where retail politicking is impossible and where primaries are held earlier than ever.
