Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on the passing of Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post columnist David Broder.
"Over the decades David Broder has distinguished himself as one of the greatest American journalists of all time. His support and affection for New Hampshire's First in the Nation Primary has been deeply appreciated by Granite Staters of all political philosophies.
"David understood the value of having candidates for our nation's highest office visit the living rooms and factories of informed and skeptical New Hampshire voters on their way to the White House.
"Next year's 2012 New Hampshire primary will be the first in my lifetime without David Broder. I know that I speak for all New Hampshire Democrats when I say that his presence will be sorely missed."
