McCain to Granite State: 'I Love You'
By Michael Abramowitz
GOFFSTOWN, N.H. -- John McCain returned briefly this morning to the scene of some of his greatest political triumphs to try to rally voters for one last victory.
"I can't tell you how happy I am to be back in the great state of New Hampshire," McCain proclaimed in a rally at St. Anselm's College here. "I have great memories -- the hundreds of town hall meetings, the travels across this great state from one end to the other, for many, many years.
"I love you. I love New Hampshire. I know I can count on you again to come from behind, to again come from behind and take a victory ... all the way to Washington, D.C., next January."
New Hampshire is one off the few states carried by John Kerry in 2004 that finds McCain in a tight race with Barack Obama, and one would think it would be a prime possibility for a GOP pick-up given McCain's previous victories here. But it's unclear how Granite Staters will react to McCain 2.0, the new version that adheres more closely to GOP orthodoxy than he did in 2000.
After a round of interviews here, McCain plans to fly in to Ohio to rally with running mate Sarah Palin.
