Three N.H. DAs to back Romney for president

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will pick up endorsements on Thursday from three New Hampshire county attorneys.

During a day-long swing through New Hampshire, Romney, is expected to get the endorsements of Cheshire County Attorney Peter Heed, Rockingham County Attorney Jim Reams, and Merrimack County Attorney Scott Murray.

Murray was a supporter of John McCain in 2008 and is one of several prominent McCain supporters now backing Romney, including executive councilor and former Merrimack county attorney Dan St. Hilaire and Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard.

Romney has a packed schedule on Thursday.

He will tape a WMUR-TV “Conversation with the Candidate’’ in the morning, followed by a noon lunch with the Portsmouth Rotary Club at the Redhook Ale Brewery.


At 2 p.m., Romney will visit RSA Realty in Rochester, a company owned by former Republican State Representative Packy Campbell, a 2008 town chairman for John McCain. (McCain toured the same business in 2007.)

Romney has been consistently criticizing President Obama’s handling of the economy, and a Romney spokesman said the candidate will use the business stop to talk about the economic impacts of President Obama’s policies.

Romney will finish the day with a 5 p.m. town hall meeting at the Adams Memorial Opera House in Derry – his third public town hall meeting of the election cycle.
