President Obama will bring his healthcare-stimulus road tour to New Hampshire next week, the White House just announced.
The town hall will be in the Portsmouth area on Tuesday. More details to come.
It will be Obama's first foray into the Granite State while president. He stumped there in October, just before the November election. In his electoral landslide, he won the state, despite Republican John McCain's popularity there.
But perhaps the highest-profile event he held there was with Hillary Rodham Clinton in the aptly named Unity, N.H., in June 2008 when they held their first joint rally after a sometimes bitter primary campaign that was extended when Clinton pulled a "comeback kid" and won the New Hampshire primary that January.
