Graham, O'Malley Kick Off Short Campaign Week In New Hampshire

Nov 23, 2015

Two presidential hopefuls, both stressing their experience to voters, are on the campaign trail today in New Hampshire.

Republican Lindsey Graham is on day four of his latest New Hampshire campaign swing.

He says in the aftermath of the attacks in Paris, military and legislative experience like his will make a difference in the fight against the so-called Islamic State.

"I've been calling for a regional approach using the Arabs and Turkey," Graham says. "Their armies will be part of it - 10 percent us, 90 percent them - to go in on the ground and destroy the caliphate before they hit us here."

Graham's stops today include Hillsborough, Keene and Rindge.

Democrat Martin O'Malley is back in the state as well. He's long touted his tenure as mayor of Baltimore and governor of Maryland.

He speaks at a forum in Bedford this morning before holding town hall-style events in Rindge and Exeter.

The campaign trail stays quiet over Thanksgiving, but the three top Democratic candidates will come to Manchester next weekend for the party's annual Jefferson-Jackson fundraising dinner.
