Rubio, Christie celebrate Independence Day in NH parade


WOLFEBORO - At one of the state's largest Independence Day parades attended by thousands - led by hundreds of colorful floats, boats and dancers - politics couldn't help but tag along, too.

Among the political faces who walked down North Main St. were two GOP presidential candidates: Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).

"I feel really good, it's a great day here - beautiful day - I'm enjoying it," Christie told NH1 News.

The 2016 hopeful was a big hit among many parade attendees, who cheered "Go, Christie, Go!"

Rubio, who was last but not least in the lineup, walked with some of his young children.

"It's been great, so much fun, this is just great," Rubio said about being back in New Hampshire.

The two GOP contenders were also greeted by 2012 former presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, who owns a lakefront home in Wolfeboro.

Asked by a reporter about Donald Trump's controversial comments on Mexican-Americans, Romney said he was disappointed by the billionaire's choice of words.

"I think he made a severe error in saying what he did about Mexican-Americans, and feel it was unfortunate," Romney said.
