Of all the people at the several campaign rallies and town hall meetings John McCain has attended in New Hampshire this year, it may seem a little odd that the one person the campaign selects for their commercial holding a "New Hampshire for McCain" sign was an out-of-state former paid McCain staffer.
The 30-second spot below shows introduces McCain as a leader and as a person with a long history in the Granite State. Just before he says the words "Live Free or Die" the commercial cuts to a shot of Dwayne Carson, a Washington resident who was laid off with several other New Hampshire staffers when McCain had money troubles.
A McCain spokeswoman did not return a phone call for comment.
