Presidential candidates to march in July Fourth parades
CONCORD — New Hampshire residents planning to celebrate July Fourth at local parades could catch a glimpse of America's next president. At the very least, they'll see some of the people vying for the job.
Presidential hopefuls are heading to the early primary state of New Hampshire Saturday for parades across the state. The weekend will give the candidates a chance to interact with voters who may not be paying attention to presidential politics quite yet and to practice a more casual approach to campaigning.
Republican candidates in the state include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. The Democratic lineup includes Hillary Rodham Clinton and Lincoln Chafee, Rhode Island's former governor.
