Most influential players in the New Hampshire primary
The Boston Globe
If you have heard of Senator John McCain, it is likely because of Dennehy. In 2000, Dennehy guided McCain's 19-point win over George W. Bush in the New Hampshire primary, bringing McCain to national prominence. Afterwards, Dennehy became a successful lobbyist and political consultant based in Concord and waited for McCain to make another run for the presidency. Earlier this year, Dennehy became McCain's national political director, but he stepped down amid a re-structuring. However, he remains on the payroll advising McCain's campaign in New Hampshire and South Carolina.
