During the first leg of a 10-day campaign trip through New Hampshire Thursday, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped at gun accessories company Samson Manufacturing in Keene.
While there, the GOP presidential candidate took a turn with the merchandise, hitting targets with both a 12-gauge shotgun and an RK-15 assault rifle. On his next visit at the Cheshire County Fish & Game Club, the senator also tested out his shooting skills by hitting nearly every skeet disk that flew his way.
He joked, "If shooting matters, I think I won New Hampshire."
On Friday, Graham will visit Sig Sauer in Epping where he will testing out handguns. But despite logging a lot of hours in New Hampshire, Graham has been trailing in the polls, pulling in around one percent.
That back-of-the-pack standing doesn't bother him, Graham said: "I wouldn’t be coming up here a lot if there was not a market for what I had to offer."
Graham will be with Sen. John McCain, two-time winner of the New Hampshire Republican Primary, on Friday and through the weekend.
