NH Republicans push candidates to stand with NH
Prominent NH Republicans warn that siding with Nevada in calendar spat will have consequences
By The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) ' Prominent New Hampshire Republicans are warning Mitt Romney and other GOP presidential candidates that they could lose key endorsements and votes if they side with Nevada in the standoff over the nominating calendar.

A coalition including New Hampshire's GOP legislative leaders, tea party activists and key conservatives held a news conference Wednesday calling on Nevada to push back its Jan. 14 caucuses and asking Romney, Rick Perry and Ron Paul to join other candidates in boycotting Nevada until that happens.

Several coalition members said they would think twice about supporting a candidate who won't side with New Hampshire. Tea party activist Andrew Hemingway went further, accusing Romney of pushing Nevada to encroach on New Hampshire's position and saying he wouldn't support any candidate who campaigns in Nevada.
