WASHINGTON — All presidential candidates want to end up in Washington, D.C. But what about Washington, New Hampshire?
According to various websites that track candidate schedules, just one — Jon Huntsman in 2011 — has visited Washington in the last decade.
But Washington isn't alone. Contrary to the perception that presidential candidates travel to every nook and cranny across the state to win votes, they mostly stick to a well-worn path. So far this cycle, candidates have made more than 500 stops in 89 of the state's 234 towns and cities, according to candidate schedules compiled by New England Cable News. Nearly 100 of those stops were in the state's largest city, Manchester, which was followed in popularity by the cities of Nashua, Concord and Portsmouth.
