CONCORD – Carly Fiorina returns to New Hampshire Saturday for a three day Labor Day weekend campaign swing.
And NH1 News learned Friday that the Republican presidential candidate will return to the Granite State the following weekend.
The former Hewlett Packard chief executive officer, who’s rising in the polls in the race for the GOP nomination, will return to the first-in-the-nation primary state on Saturday, September 12.
Fiorina will kick off her visit at 12:30pm with a stop at the Merrimack County GOP and Concord GOP Committee’s Stretch Kennedy Annual Picnic in Chichester. Fiorina then heads to Stratham for a Seacoast Republican Women’s Chili Cookoff at Doug and Stella Scamman’s Farm on Route 108. The Scammans, who are influential Seacoast Republicans, recently endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich for the GOP nomination.
Fiorina then goes north to Dover, for a Strafford County Barbecue and Beer Bash at the Cottage by the Bay.
On Sunday, September 13, Fiorina starts her day at 10:25am in Alton with a CFP Breakfast with Carly at the Alton American Legion Hall. In the afternoon Fiorina heads to Glen to stop by Gene Chandler’s Fall Family Picnic at the Glen Ellis Family Campground.
Fiorina has made more trips and spent more days in the first-in-the-nation primary state this year than any of the other Republican presidential candidates other than New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former New York Governor George Pataki. Close behind Fiorina in travel to the Granite State is Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, with Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ohio Gov. John Kasich not that far behind.
Earlier Friday, NH1 News was also first to report that Christie will appear with Gov. Paul LePage of Maine on Sunday, September 13 at 4:30pm Newick’s Lobster House in Dover, New Hampshire for a town hall. Christie announced for president in the Garden State on June 30. That night he held a town hall in New Hampshire and the next morning he headed to Maine to accept LePage’s endorsement.
