Foreign diplomats experience New Hampshire primary

MANCHESTER — Diplomats from around the world are getting a close look at New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

The Diplomatic Observer program invites diplomats posted to the U.S. to visit New Hampshire in the days leading up to the primary to meet candidates and convey to their governments what they have learned. This year, participants include diplomats from Sweden, New Zealand, Netherlands, Australia, Ireland, Japan and Hungary.

From Feb. 5-7, the group will spend three days attending rallies, campaign briefings and political party dinners, and visiting campaign headquarters. The program is managed by George Bruno, former U.S. ambassador to Belize, and Philip James Walker, a former foreign service officer.
