(CNN) - The New Hampshire Political Library is awarding CNN's Candy Crowley with a New Hampshire Primary Award Wednesday for her outstanding political coverage.

Serving as CNN's Senior Political Correspondent, Crowley braved the New England cold to report extensively on the New Hampshire primary earlier this year.

Former Sen. Bill Bradley, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and former New Hampshire Gov. Walter Peterson are also among those who are to be honored Wednesday evening.

The New Hampshire Political Library describes itself as a non partisan, non-profit organization with a mission of promoting the state's first-in-the-nation presidential primary status.

The award is the latest in Crowley's long list of honors. In 2005, she was honored with the Joan Shorenstein Barone Award for excellence in journalism for her reporting on the 2004 presidential election. She also won the Gracie Allen Award that year in the National News Story-Series category for "War Stories" and a National Headliner and a Cine award for "Fit to Kill."

In 2003, Crowley won an Emmy for her work on CNN Presents' "Enemy Within." She won the 1999 DuPont-Columbia University Silver Baton Award for her coverage of the impeachment and trial of President Bill Clinton. She won the 2003 and 1998 Dirksen Award for distinguished reporting on Congress from the National Press Foundation and the 1997 Joan Shorenstein Barone Award for Excellence in Journalism for her coverage of Bob Dole's campaign for the presidency. She received the Associated Press Broadcasters' Award for spot news reporting for her coverage of the Reagan campaign, as well as the AP Award for in-depth coverage of the 1980 Reagan campaign.

    Candy Crowley is pretty good – she's done excellent work and I enjoy her reports daily on CNN.

    On a side note, please stop havingLanny David or KiKi McLean from the Clinton campaign on. Possibly the two worst human beings on the planet. Between the two of them, there unabashful bias towards Clinton and how they lie and have this arrogance about them does viewers like me a diservice.

    I swear I would kick Lanny David right in the gonzungas if I ever met that guy.

    Who decided New Hampshire should always be first? Why does this continue to be so important? States want to be important thus the mess we are in because Michigan and Florida could not wait, the irony of it all. The last to vote maybe be the most important.
