Although not publicized or even confirmed by his staff, Governor Mitt Romney continues to meet with small private groups of New Hampshire Republicans as he pursues a potential presidential campaign.
Republican activists in the state say Romney is scheduled to be in New Hampshire on Thursday in Manchester.
Some Romney supporters have long worried the Massachusetts governor would because so familiar to neighboring New Hampshire audiences that there would be less excitement about his visits. Because of this concern, they put together smaller events that attract less attention.
This concern of being overexposed did not bother Massachusetts Senator John F. Kerry or former Vermont governor Howard Dean in 2004 even though they made the same short drive into the Granite State while running for president. They held several events in the state, and while some were private most were not.
