New Hampshire Travel Watch
Thanks to an astute reader, we can add former North Carolina senator John Edwards (D) to the list of politicians visiting New Hampshire in October. Edwards will be in the state on Oct. 21, visiting Dartmouth College. The visit is part of a 10-college tour by Edwards to promote "Project Opportunity" -- a new initiative to encourage young people to get involved in the fight against poverty.
Today Edwards is in New York City to speak at a Service Employees International Union event with Democratic mayoral nominee Freddy Ferrer. Tomorrow he will travel to New Jersey to rake in cash for state assembly candidates in Newark.

Showing that he is getting more serious about a run for the Democratic presidential nomination, Delaware Sen. Joe Biden will head to New Hampshire later this month to address (and raise money for) the New Hampshire Building & Construction Trades Council.
Biden will be in the Granite State for the event the week of Oct. 24; he will be accompanied at the fundraiser by Manchester Mayor Bob Baines. Earlier in the week, Biden will be in Kentucky (Oct. 22) to headline a fundraiser for the state's Democratic party.
Biden has taken other steps toward a 2008 bid, including forming a leadership PAC -- Unite Our States. If the Delaware senator announces his candidacy, it would mark his second bid for the party's presidential nomination. His first attempt in 1988 ended before a single vote was cast after allegations of plagiarism came to light.
Biden joins three of his Senate colleagues who are making the trek to New Hampshire this month. Tomorrow Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback (R) will be in Manchester for a town hall sponsored by St. Anselm College. Then on Saturday, Virginia Sen. George Allen (R) visits the city of Stratham for a reception. Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh (D) keynotes the New Hampshire Democratic Party Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Manchester on the 29th.
Are there other upcoming visits I'm missing? If so, drop the information in the comments section or shoot me an e-mail.
