The signs of fall in New Hampshire are in nearly every yard. Signs like “Lynch for Governor” or “Jeb Bradley for Congress” are planted along roadways for all types of visitors to enjoy. This weekend even politicians come to enjoy the peak of fall colors. On Saturday alone Senators John Kerry, Chris Dodd, and retired General Wesley Clark will be in the state.
Kerry will return the favor to those who supported his last run for president. He will campaign with Congressional candidate Paul Hodes, State Senator Martha Fuller Clark, and Executive Council candidate Bev Hollingworth.
Clark will also be giving some political payback to First District Congressional candidate Carol Shea-Porter, who was one of Clark’s earliest and most active volunteers. In fact, Clark will spend nearly two days with her at four events.
Dodd headlines the Rockingham County Eleanor Roosevelt Dinner. This is the second year for the dinner and Dodd will likely have an easier time keeping the audience’s attention than Senator Russ Feingold did last year. Back then even Feingold understood his speech would be interrupted with score updates from a Red Sox – Yankees game.
