Republican Chris Christie is back in New Hampshire today. It’s the New Jersey Governor’s first campaign visit after landing a high-profile endorsement.
Anyone who comes to Christie’s town hall event this evening in Loudon, or to a meet and greet Tuesday morning in Londonderry, should expect to hear about his endorsement from the New Hampshire Union Leader, which said Christie was the right choice "for our safety, for our future."
“Americans seem to be fed up with Washington and they’re looking for somebody who speaks with the bark off, as we say in New Hampshire,” publisher Joe McQuaid said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." “I think Christie does that, but as we said in the editorial, he does that knowing what he’s talking about, as opposed to some others who don’t.”
Five other Republicans will join Christie on the New Hampshire campaign trail this week. Florida US Senator Marco Rubio holds a town hall event today in Laconia before attending a barbecue at the Rye home of former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown.
On Tuesday, Donald Trump holds an event at the White Mountain Athletic Club in Waterville Valley.
Later in the week Ohio Governor John Kasich holds three days of campaign events. Former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmore and former New York Governor George Pataki are set to return to the state.
Among Democrats, Martin O’Malley campaigns today in Manchester, North Conway and Somersworth.
Hillary Clinton returns to New Hampshire Thursday. She's set to visit businesses in Nashua, lead a discussion on women’s economic opportunity in Manchester and hold a town hall in Dover.
