Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders may be polling second to Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, but it's not clear voters there will get to see his name on the ballot next to hers. Bernie Sanders: I can beat Hillary Clinton Charles Bass, a former Republican congressman from the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire, knows his way around the state's presidential election laws - he helped write them - and he harbors doubts about Sanders' eligibility for the Democratic primary ballot. In a Washington Post op-ed published Thursday, he declared,"Sanders is not a Democrat, has not been elected as a Democrat, has never served as a Democrat and cannot plausibly claim, at least in New Hampshire, to be a Democrat." While Sanders caucuses with Democrats in the Senate, the independent senator may have trouble qualifying for the Democratic ballot in New Hampshire.

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Chris Christie's opening week as a presidential candidate doubled as the first test of his campaign's blueprint for success: Camp out in New Hampshire, the first state in the nation to hold a primary election, and win over Republican primary voters one town hall at a time with his characteristic blunt talk and megawatt charisma. And at least for the opening stretch of his campaign, Christie seems to be able to avoid or neutralize those issues that have hurt him nationally, like the scandal in which his aidesordered the closure of certain lanes of the George Washington Bridge as an apparent act of political retribution, or his work with President Obama in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN)Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, will stop in the early presidential primary state of New Hampshire on Friday, adding fuel to speculation that the retiring senator will launch a GOP challenge against the sitting President in 2020. "I'm just going for the weather," Flake quipped this week, talking about his upcoming trip. The senator from Arizona, who was facing a tough re-election bid and decided not to run for a second term, isn't knocking down the idea of a presidential campaign, especially against a man who Flake has accused of "charting a very dangerous path" for the country. "I'm not ruling it out," Flake told CNN when asked about 2020. "But it's not in my plans." The senator will speak at the Politics & Eggs series, a must-do stop for potential presidential contenders hosted by the New England Council and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College.
