1. If Dems Hold A Primary In N.H., And Biden's Not On Ballots, What Could Happen? NPR 13:49

The incumbent president may not appear on New Hampshire’s Democratic primary ballots this winter. After the party moved its first 2024 nominating contest to South Carolina, the state said it would still hold its primary beforehand regardless. This, in turn, sets up a possible scenario where if Biden refuses to campaign in the state, and leaves his name off the ballot — it allows a fringe candidate like anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to win.

This episode: political reporter Deepa Shivaram, national political correspondent Mara Liasson, and New Hampshire Public Radio senior political reporter and editor Josh Rogers.
