Massachusetts invasion: politicians head to NH to campaign for candidates of their choice

The Associated Press

BOSTON — The New Hampshire primary is days away and that can only mean one thing in neighboring Massachusetts — a mass exodus of elected officials from Beacon Hill to the frozen north to stump for the candidate of their choice.

The so-called surrogates join the small armies of political pitchmen already roaming New Hampshire hoping to sway undecided voters.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito will campaign Saturday for Chris Christie.

Republican former acting Gov. Jane Swift will be knocking on doors for Jeb Bush. State Sen. Ryan Fattman will be leading GOP lawmakers and activists supporting Marco Rubio.

Hillary Clinton easily has the largest contingent, including nearly every member of the state's all-Democratic congressional delegation. Several lawmakers also will be knocking on doors for Bernie Sanders.
