DURHAM, N.H. -- John McCain told a small gathering of supporters that he feels comfortable in New Hampshire, that it is his "home", and that he will win the New Hampshire Primary "just like we did four years ago".
McCain was introduced by Connecticut Congressman Chris Shays, the only Republican Congressman in all of New England.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham also spoke about his recent trip to Iraq. He said were signs of progress.
"Morale is really high there now," Graham told the crowd of 60 attending a pre-debate rally at a bar near the debate site.
McCain also introduced Jamie Steinbach, an 11-year-old girl from Milton. She recently gave her allowance to McCain's campaign.
"You are not a little jerk," McCain said referring to how he characterized a Concord High School student who asked him yesterday if he was too old to be president.
