South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a possible Republican presidential candidate, will spend part of a two-day swing through New Hampshire touring a business with Sen. Kelly Ayotte.

Graham and Ayotte, who have worked closely in the Senate on foreign policy issues, are scheduled to tour New Hampshire Ball Bearings in Laconia on Thursday afternoon. The tour is part of Ayotte's official schedule, and Graham is joining her to see the facility, meet workers and discuss their support of legislation reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank.

Graham spent Wednesday hosting a town hall and attending a meet and greet with the Belknap County GOP.

Ayotte, who has not endorsed anyone for 2016, will be a sought-after ally for Republican candidates seeking to perform well in the state's early presidential primary.
