The Primary Source is lucky to have three talented college students helping out with the blog through the New Hampshire Primary...whenever that happens.
New England College senior Danny Reiter, St. Anselm College senior Brian Lawson, and University of New Hampshire sophomore Keeley Smith will aid in reporting and logistics for what could be among the most competitive and complicated New Hampshire primary ever.
They will also be submitting what we'll call "Tales from the Trail", a collection of short snapshots of primary events.
The first Tale from the Trail is from Brian Lawson. Some readers of this blog may have also visited his must-read reported blog called New Hampshire Presidential Watch.
What: John McCain supporters gathered to watch a new campaign video called "Courageous Service" that highlights Senator McCain's courage, faith and leadership.
Where: John McCain's New Hampshire Headquarters at Manchester's Waumbec Mill.
How many people: 35 supporters and staff members.
How many bags of popcorn: No popcorn, but lots of soda and Chips Ahoy!
Why would anyone on Thursday night watch a McCain movie (one they could get a copy of) over the Red Sox/Yankees game: "I'm a staunch backer and believer in McCain and any active support and presence that, as a Veteran, I can show that I am standing firmly behind him," said Jeff Gaudet from Alexandria, N.H.
Best quote of the event: The crowd laughed the loudest when Senator McCain's mother said, in relation to her hearing that her son was a POW: "Can you belief that's the best news of my life."
