New Hampshire politics is about being able to field operatives who can help out with grassroots campaigning. Repubican Governors Mitt Romney and Governor George Pataki are taking that advice serious. Gov. Romney recently convinced GOP operative Rich Killion to join the Commonwealth PAC. While New York Governor George Pataki is hiring Chris Larson to head his PAC's New Hampshire office. Larson previously worked for the DCI Group, Gov. Pataki is also a client of New Hampshire based firm Meridian Communications.
Senator John Kerry (D-MA) will be in New Hampshire this Sunday, September 10th. He will be lending a helping hand to state Senate candidate Molly Kelly of Keene. Senator Kerry will also be the special guest at the Jefferson-Jackson dinner on October 13th.

While visiting the Granite state this morning both Senator Edwards and Senator Biden criticised Secretary Rumsfeld. Senator Edwards said, "I think Donald Rumsfeld needs to be gone for reasons much more important than anything he said in a speech. He's been one of the architects of this mess in Iraq, and he takes absolutely no responsibility for any of the mistakes he's made." Meanwhile, Senator Biden said, ""The most significant comparison with World War II is that we soon, will have been in Iraq as long as World War II, with much less success...If civil war breaks out, all the king's horses and all the king's men aren't going to get this country back together again."
Here are some quotes and photo from Senator Edwards visit to New Hampshire this morning. "If Americans can join the Republican Party by signing their name to a card, they should be able to sign a card to join a union." Also, the union is the "greatest anti-poverty movement."
