Romney campaign tops 1 million voter contacts in New Hampshire
On the heels of Friday’s announcement of the New Hampshire Small Business Owners for Romney coalition, Saturday saw the Republican nominee’s campaign surpass a million voter contacts in the Granite State alone.
“In fact, the Romney Victory volunteer effort in New Hampshire has made two times more phone calls and seven times more door knocks than this time in 2008,” read a press release from RNC Victory Communications Director Tommy Schultz. “With more than $5.5 trillion in new debt under President Obama, and with the choice so clear on the very different visions for our future, it is no wonder supporters for Gov. Romney have had so much energy this cycle.”
The milestone comes in the midst of a weekend filled with campaign activity from Republicans in the Granite State. As noted by the Nashua Telegraph, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus joined Senator Kelly Ayotte for direct voter contact:
Preibus and Ayotte visited residents on Chatham Street in Nashua on Saturday afternoon before heading to the local Romney campaign office on Amherst Street. Priebus said it’s all part of making sure that voters are able to connect with the campaign on a personal level, saying he has had plenty of experience working in campaigns and has learned that face-to-face contact with voters is vital to winning elections.
Meanwhile, over in Hudson, Tagg Romney made an unannounced Saturday visit to the annual PumpkinFest. The Union Leader writes:
Romney stopped by Saturday afternoon to meet people on behalf of his father, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. He paused to sign the Girl Scout’s “get out the vote” pledge promising to vote. The Granite State and its residents are special to the family, he said.
“New Hampshire is a second home to us,” Romney said.
