Issue of the Week: Foreign Policy

Oct 24, 2012

Our issue of the week series continues with a look at where the candidates stand on Foreign Policy!  Eight years ago, it was a front-and-center issue in our national elections., but now, it has more of a backseat role.  Still, the Presidential contenders did dig into it this week, in a major debate, and New Hampshire’s congressional candidates have offered their opinions as well.  We'll look at where the similarities and differences are between the candidates on the issue of foreign policy.
