CONCORD – As the New Hampshire Journal first reported nearly two weeks ago, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul will return to the state next week to campaign for the state GOP.
Details, first obtained by the Journal this morning, have Paul, a potential presidential candidate, attending three get-out-the-vote rallies and meeting with the Plymouth State College Republicans on Oct. 16.
Later that evening, the state Democratic Party will hold its annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner, featuring former President Bill Clinton.
Paul joins a parade of potential presidential candidate visiting the state. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will return on Friday, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was in the state yesterday and is scheduled to return on Oct. 24, and Texas Gov. Rick Perry had been scheduled to visit this week, but was forced to cancel due to state business related to concerns about Ebola in his state.
The Journal has also confirmed that former New York Gov. George Pataki will return to New Hampshire on Oct. 19-21 to campaign with local candidates.
And on the Democratic side, the big draw will be Hillary Clinton’s visit on the final Sunday before the election, on Nov. 2.
Paul’s visit on Oct. 16 will include a get-out-the-vote rally at the office of Senate candidate Scott Brown’s campaign headquarters and the NHGOP field office in Manchester; a rally at NHGOP headquarters in Concord, co-hosted by the Dartmouth College Republicans; a pizza party with Plymouth State University College Republican at the Hartman Union Building and a rally at the NHGOP field office in Salem.
