Dodd Drops by the Red Arrow
When's That Primary Again?

The latest DinerCam episode comes courtesy of our friends at the Red Arrow Diner in Manchester, N.H. Democrat Chris Dodd paid a visit last Saturday, only hours before Game Six of the American League Championship Series.

The Connecticut senator earned only 2 percent in the most recent poll of likely New Hampshire Democratic voters, so a few stops to visit diner customers can't hurt.

On his way out, Dodd ran into Manchester Mayor Frank C. Guinta (R). The mayor was with his sons, Colby, 4, and Jack, 3.

Dodd whipped out photos of his daughters, Grace, 6, and Christina, 2, to share with Guinta's sons.

"When you're 35 or 40, call them, and you can get together," Dodd told the young boys.

"You know how we all feel about the status of our primary," Guinta later said.

"I feel very strongly about it," Dodd replied.

"And when will it be?" a customer asked the mayor.

"Uh, well, you know if I knew that..." Guinta said.

"Let me know too, will ya?" Dodd said laughingly.
