CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Several Republican presidential hopefuls are trying to push Nevada into pulling back on its mid-January caucus date, siding with New Hampshire in its showdown with other states over scheduling early primaries and caucuses.

New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner said Wednesday he is prepared to schedule the first in the nation primary in early December to avoid squeezing between Iowa's caucuses, tentatively scheduled for Jan. 3, and Nevada's caucuses on Jan. 14.

On Thursday, the campaigns of Jon Huntsman, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann all said they would boycott Nevada unless its caucus date is changed. Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul said while they respect New Hampshire's role, they will compete everywhere. Herman Cain's campaign did not immediately respond to inquiries.
