Welcome to the latest edition of THE 603.

Call Bill Gardner the comeback kid.
 
New Hampshire’s longtime secretary of state, known nationally as one of the chief guardians of the state’s treasured status, holding the nation’s first primary, won re-election to a 22nd two-year term this week, in dramatic and historic fashion.
 
Cory Booker’s in the Granite State this weekend, in what appears to be a tune-up for a likely run for the White House. And some top Joe Biden supporters in New Hampshire are ready to go if the vice president does indeed make a third presidential bid.
 
Did someone mention primetime? Not quite yet... but we're getting closer... 
 
Booker’s big weekend in the 603
A top Granite State-based Democratic strategist says Cory Booker’s jam-packed trip to New Hampshire this weekend will help the New Jersey senator decide on whether he’ll launch a bid for the White House. “This trip will give him a great opportunity to get a feel for what campaigning in New Hampshire is like, with some living room settings, some coffee shops,” Jim Demers said.

Gabbard ‘seriously thinking’ of presidential bid 
A second trip in the past three months by Tulsi Gabbard to the state that holds the first-in-the-nation presidential primary is sparking more speculation that the congresswoman from Hawaii is seriously mulling a run for the Democratic nomination. “I’m seriously thinking of how I can best be of service to our country,” Gabbard told the Portsmouth Herald Sunday, moments before headlining a meet and greet with party activists packed into the Rockingham County Democrats headquarters in Exeter.

Moulton on the way?
He’s repeatedly said he’s not running for the White House in 2020. But 
sources close to Congressman Seth Moulton of Massachusetts say it’s very likely he’ll be in New Hampshire soon after the start of the new year.
 
The rise and fall of Avenatti’s potential presidential bid
When Michael Avenatti arrived in New Hampshire in August, he was treated like a rock star. But Avenatti’s abrupt announcement Tuesday that he’s taking himself out of the hunt for the White House followed a string of personal and professional controversies also came as the excitement and media attention over his stops in New Hampshire had started to wane.

Nation’s longest serving secretary of state survives his toughest re-election in craziest day at NH Statehouse in years
It went into a second round, and it was shrouded in a bit of confusion, but longtime New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner narrowly won an extremely hard fought re-election to serve another two years as the state’s top election official.
Gardner, known nationally as one of the chief guardians of New Hampshire’s cherished century old status as first-in-the-nation presidential primary, on Wednesday defeated challenger and fellow Democrat Colin Van Ostern 209-205 on the second ballot of voting by state lawmakers.
