From The Biden Campaign:
Today, Representative Jim Ryan (D-Franklin), New Hampshire Chairman of the Biden for President campaign issued the following statement in response to Senator Barack Obama's comments regarding "trading favors" for endorsements.
"I am deeply disappointed by the comments of Senator Obama this morning. It does not say a lot for Obama's opinion of New Hampshire officials if he thinks that our endorsements can be bought and sold for 'favors'.
"We take pride in New Hampshire of the fact that we look beyond the hype and the money and really focus on where all the candidates stand on the issues. Our last two Democratic Presidents started off low in the polls, however they won New Hampshire's hearts based on the merits of their ideas.
