Political candidates to hit Memorial Day parade routes
CONCORD (AP) - The season of politicians marching in parades kicks off this weekend with the Memorial Day holiday.
U.S. Senate rivals Gov. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat, and Sen. Kelly Ayotte, a Republican, both have jam-packed schedules of holiday events. Ayotte plans to march in a Bedford parade Sunday as well as parades in Concord and Manchester on Monday. She'll also attend a ceremony at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery.
Hassan, meanwhile, is scheduled to march Monday in Loudon and Manchester. She'll also attend the ceremony at the veterans cemetery.
As the political season heats up, Granite State residents can expect to see both out to shake as many hands as possible.
