The Atlantic's Marc Ambinder is reporting that "His campaign is thinking about spending between $350K and $500K on its first television ad buy next week, although a final decision has not been made. The ad would air in New Hampshire and would focus on McCain’s life story."
This past summer, his west side home became a fixture on the trail when, he hosted various house parties for Democratic presidential candidates.
In an interview with “New Hampshire Presidential Watch,” Senator D’Allesandro told us that he decided to hold the gatherings because “I’ve been involved in the process for a long time and I think it’s imperative that people get to know the candidates.”
When asked about his importance in the primary process, D’Allesandro said “Well you know I’ve been around awhile, I’ve been able to win some elections. I’m just an ordinary guy, a person of moderate means.”
D’Allesandro played a critical role in the 2004 cycle and many are looking for signs to a possible 2008 endorsement.
In the 2004 campaign, D’Allesandro served as the Chairman of the John Edwards New Hampshire campaign and his endorsement made national news with his decision to endorse Edwards. Elizabeth Edwards participated in a September fundraiser for D’Allesandro.
Yet, so far, he has not endorsed the former North Carolina Senator saying, “I just think that I’m looking for the right message from the right candidate.”
D’Allesandro added, “I think that when you’ve run one time and had a platform, his two America speech was very well received, and you come back a second time and you deviate from that theme a little bit, people are a bit static.”
Edwards spokeswoman, Kate Bedingfield, responded “We have chosen to take a grassroots approach to our campaign leadership in New Hampshire this cycle. We have a leadership committee comprised of elected officials, community leaders and enthusiastic activists who represent every corner of New Hampshire. Instead of a top-down, hierarchical structure, we have a team that gives us input from across the state and helps us build the kind of neighbor-to-neighbor support that is going to win New Hampshire for John Edwards.”
Whether or not D’Allesandro’s non-endorsement, of Edwards, means anything, Dante Scala, professor at the University of New Hampshire, said “Tough to say for sure, but one would think that if he were completely sold on Edwards, he would not be waiting.”
Even though campaigns are after his endorsement, Scala warns that his support might not carry that much weight because “As a rule of thumb, endorsements by sitting governors are the most valued endorsements in New Hampshire because governors typically have the most extensive political organizations. After that, it really depends on how much the endorser will labor on behalf of the candidate.”
While the Granite State political establishment awaits his decision, Senator D’Allesandro tells us that he hopes to come to a decision “in early October.”
Here is the complete interview.
“Why did you decide to hold these house parties?”
“I’ve been involved in the process for a long time and I think it’s imperative that people get to know the candidates and as a result we’ve been holding parties at the house, mainly in presidential years. Now this year, with so many qualified Democratic candidates I think that it’s important to have my friends, family, supporters, to meet the candidates in person and that’s why we do it.”
“Do you have any favorite stories about the parties?”
“I think that one of the great stories about the parties is the Hillary Clinton party. Everyone thought that she was so accessible. She stayed around and took pictures. We had a group of Ukrainian teachers come to the event. I met them at the State House and as a result, they came. It was a real treat and an exceptional situation. Senator Dodd was very terrific, Senator Biden’s plane got held-up, he didn’t make it, and so we had to have a party without him. Bill Richardson was also really good. The unique situation though was that the Ukrainians were at the party. And the whole neighborhood had a good time and that’s really what it’s all about.”
“What do you think people view you has such an important player in the primary process?”
“Well you know I’ve been around awhile, I’ve been able to win some elections. I’m just an ordinary guy, a person of moderate means. I’ve lived in the same house for a long time. I think an ordinary person that brings people to the forefront, in terms of my friends and neighbors can meet the candidates. When a political person comes, they meet ordinary people who are going to vote. I think that’s something that’s been missing in the process. We still have an opportunity to keep that in New Hampshire. Through the good graces of my wife and family, we’ve been able to keep that tradition alive. Columnists, newspapermen have come and written nice articles about what we do and how we do it and people seem to react very positively to it and they (the candidates) keep coming back.”
“What do you think Americans are looking for in the next president?”
“I think they’re looking for a couple of things. The first thing is they are looking for leadership, someone who’s going to take this country and move it in a much different direction. And a president that’s going to tell them the truth. We’ve had some real problems with the truth from the current administration and the public is sensitive to that. They want good leadership, but they want leadership they can trust, belief in, and I belief that’s what Americans are looking for this time. It’s a very significant election. Probably the most significant election in my lifetime. I thought the Kennedy/Nixon one was important and this one is probably has important, if not more important, than that one.”
“When putting together these house parties, which campaign has been the most difficult to deal with?”
“I think they were all very good to deal with. The Dodd campaign was just wonderful in terms of coming to help set-up, they were just really terrific. The Clinton party had more people but we had to deal with the Secret Service, which we didn’t have to deal with when working with the other campaigns. Generally speaking, the candidates have been terrific. Mrs. Clinton was on time and spent a great deal of time with the people. When you’re dealing with the Secret Service, it makes it a little more difficult. Generally speaking it’s a time when everyone wants to do the right thing and be accommodating and generally they are.”
“Why do you think John Edwards has not been doing that well in New Hampshire?”
“I think that when you’ve run one time and had a platform, his two America speech was very well received, and you come back a second time and you deviate from that theme a little bit, people are a bit static. I’m not sure his campaign is doing poorly. First time around, he was a fresh face and now he’s just a part of the group, he’s still in the top tier. You’ve got to stay on focus, stay on message, that’s very important. If you’re on time and answer phone calls you’re going to get elected.”
“Why haven’t you endorsed Senator Edwards yet? Is a part of the reason is because in 2004 he was a fresh face and now he’s not?”
“I have good feelings for John Edwards and I certainly have great feelings for his wife Elizabeth. She’s terrific and a great asset to him. I just think that I’m looking for the right message from the right candidate. I know that we have to win in ’08 and with so many wonderful candidates it’s a tough field to chose one to support, that’s mainly the reason right now, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t support John Edwards. We have the best qualified field that I’ve seen. They are all very qualified, all very capable. It’s a race of thoroughbreds, it’s like the Kentucky Derby and everyone’s a 2 for 1 shot.”
“When do you think you will endorse a candidate and are they any early favorites?”
“I hope to endorse a candidate in early October. I’m going away on vacation in business. When I come back I’ll seriously consider endorsing a candidate.”
Do you have any favorites?
“I think they’re all good, they’ve all impressed me. We haven’t had a party for Obama at the house but I’d like to do something. So possibly I’ll wait until after that happens to announce something.”
The purpose of the event is to provide "an opportunity for voters to ask questions and find out more about at least half the Democratic candidates.

Martin reports that "Apparently the word did not filter down from the old Thompson team to the new aides installed there."
Though like Martin, I thought the debate was still occurring. Better luck next time!
In a campaign press release, Ingbretson said that he was endorsing Paul because "Congressman Ron Paul understands, like no presidential candidate in recent history, that the central purpose of government in America is to secure the liberty of her citizens. He has the unbelievable integrity and guts to speak out and vote the liberty agenda of the Founding Fathers—not once, or occasionally, but every time. Never in my lifetime have I seen anyone running for president so oriented and in these days of Patriot Act madness I endorse his candidacy unequivocally."

She changed the lives of six million kids when she championed the bill that gave them health insurance.
And she changed future generations by pushing the drug companies to lower the cost of vaccinations.
Now she has a health care plan that lets you keep your coverage if you like it, provides affordable choices if you don’t and covers every American.
So if you're ready for change, she’s ready to lead.

Here are the complete results and a link to the polls:
Almost guaranteed first question: "Why you dissing New Hampshire? How dare you do such a thing!"
Today, the New Hampshire for Hillary campaign announced that Senators Kathy Sgambati of Tilton and Maggie Wood Hassan of Exeter have endorsed the New York Senator.
In a campaign press release, Senator Sgambati said that "Hillary Clinton has a strong vision for the future of this nation and she has been a lifelong advocate for America ’s children and families. I believe she is the most qualified candidate to repair our health care system and to ensure every American has affordable, quality healthcare."
While, Senator Hassan said "As an advocate, First Lady, and United States Senator Hillary Clinton has worked to improve healthcare, security and the quality of life for America’s children and families for 35 years. Hillary Clinton is uniquely qualified to deliver the change we need."
Paul will then participate in a canvass, with more than thirty family members.

In a campaign press release, Paul's New Hampshire Coordinator, Jared Chicoine, said "The grassroots support we're encountering is incredible; obviously, Dr. Paul's message of constitutional government is what New Hampshire voters want to hear."
Paul previously won the Strafford County GOP straw poll and also the poll conducted at the Coalition of NH Taxpayers annual picnic.
According to the Edwards campaign "The White Spruce is a medium-sized evergreen tree that grows 60-90 feet tall on average. It grows well throughout New Hampshire and New England , and is often used for erosion control and site reclamation because it is adaptable to a wide range of planting sites."
Edwards for President national campaign manager Congressman David Bonior participated in the canvass and said "This Graniteroots canvass is not just about discussing John’s bold plans to combat global warming, achieve energy independence, and create good paying jobs. Giving out these saplings will also help get neighbors talking to neighbors about the steps we can all take in our own lives to protect our environment."
