DURHAM, N.H. – At his town hall meeting in Durham, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, a Democrat, addressed the largest New Hampshire audience yet of the 2008 campaign.
Obama stood in the middle of a packed gymnasium at the University of New Hampshire of about 2,300 people. In December, he spoke at a rally of 1,500 people in Manchester. Over the weekend, Senator Hillary Clinton’s largest audience was 1,500 at Concord High School.
Before taking questions from the crowd Obama remarked, “This obviously isn’t the most intimate town hall meeting I’ve ever had.”
