John McCain returns to NH Monday
Granite State favorite and two-time NH primary winner Sen. John McCain returns on Monday to host a series of events touting his support for 2008 rival and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. McCain’s whirlwind schedule includes town hall meetings at Veterans of Foreign Wars posts in Nashua, Franklin, and Portsmouth, as well as meetings with members of the NH Law Enforcement for Romney coalition.
After a bitter primary fight in 2008, Romney got on board with McCain and became a valuable surrogate for his campaign, particularly on economic issues. McCain has returned the favor thus far, becoming a prominent critic of President Obama on defense and foreign policy issues, including Obama’s handling of the ongoing tumult in the Middle East.
