The ONE Campaign, a nonpartisan, star-studded antipoverty advocacy group opened a New Hampshire office today with the help of some political heavyweights.
Former Bush adviser Jack Oliver and former Clinton spokesman Mike McCurry both spoke at the office opening Wednesday afternoon.
Along with them was an impressive list of 70 prominent Granite State Republicans and Democrats. Co-chairing the local organization are Republican activist Rich Ashooh and former Democratic state chairman Joe Keefe. Also on the list are former Governor Craig Benson, First Lady Dr. Susan Lynch, former Ambassador Terry Shumaker, Senate President Sylvia Larsen and House Speaker Terie Norelli.
The ONE Campaign wants to eliminate worldwide poverty and address AIDS in Africa. Among those backing the ONE Campaign are Bono, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt.
