MANCHESTER – Give the award for the hardest working presidential candidate in New Hampshire to Sen. Lindsey Graham.
The South Carolina Republican was the last White House contender to campaign in the first-in-the-nation primary state prior to the long holiday weekend.
With Thanksgiving just 48 hours away, Graham was the only presidential candidate to remain in the Granite State on Tuesday. NH1 News caught up with Graham in Manchester as he visited New Horizons, the state’s largest shelter, soup kitchen and food pantry. The stop was Graham’s last during a five day campaign swing through New Hampshire.
Graham received a tour of the facility from New Horizons Executive Director Charlie Sherman, who’s also an anchorman for NH1 News. And he also helped Sherman hand out turkeys and Thanksgiving dinners.
“I’m trying to learn as much as I can about what makes New Hampshire tick and charity is a big part of it. I mean this program here, the food bank, and what they do on Thanksgiving. I’m glad I stayed. I’m going home tonight to be with my family, but the generosity of the people of Manchester is pretty overwhelming,” Graham told NH1 News.
Graham and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie have spent more time campaigning in the Granite State this year than any other candidates running for the White House.
