President Barack Obama is.
You can't run like you can't hide from the and to making this nation.
One that that we have to restore with Mitt Romney is present -- United States of America.
A big endorsement Senator John McCain shows up in New Hampshire today endorses governor Mitt Romney.
That's Senator McCain who won New Hampshire four years ago on his way to winning the Republican presidential nomination.
Is still -- popular in New Hampshire so how big is this endorsement.
New Hampshire senator Kelly.
Hitting -- Greta great to beauty of nice to have it so tell me out and win that Indian -- 2008 that element -- -- I realize this but Senator McCain really win went hard at governor Romney in this ad that acts -- by post on Greta -- dot com fan wants to see it.
And so now today comes in -- a big endorsement -- people still like about.
Explaining -- on -- you can -- such horrible things about each other whether true or not and then you can show -- the same stage same -- let's work together.
Well I think it's this you know there's a candidate for each time.
And John McCain came to New Hampshire today we consider malls are adopted senator here in New Hampshire obviously we love -- here.
And it was a great endorsement for governor Romney to get.
But what it comes sounded this is governor Romney is the candidate for this time where we are right now on our country we need to turn our economy around.
He's a turnaround specialist.
And how that endorsement from John McCain means a lot.
When you think about what he knows what it takes to run a presidential campaign and he also obviously.
Connects at New Hampshire voters and so that's what you saw today here in New Hampshire.
You know everything a politician says is dangerous every single words like been in the car when you cities of turnarounds -- as a person at Diana's.
Well yes in in 1994 is pro choice but not 2008.
2002 according to the McCain -- he support tough gun laws in Massachusetts in 2007 says supports Second Amendment.
Andy's have been a hunter for life and they says I'm not trying to return to Reagan bush it's like yeah I seize upon the word used in I think -- you know it's gonna be used against you -- that's the whole problem here I think in terms of looking -- -- And especially at -- -- governor Romney.
Candidacy is that you're gonna get hit the bad stuff.
Well listen -- he's not the only candidate in this campaign has changed his mind on something.
But on the core issues that really what our country needs right now you look at his private sector experience is experience -- turning doubt turning around a failed Olympics to a success.
As going into a Democrat state turning around a deficit to a surplus.
I mean this is the type of experience and the core.
Convictions he has on the economic issues that we need to turn our economy around and he's the only one in this field with a private sector experience.
They're really knows how the economy works and you think about where we are nationally right now.
He is the person who can take on President Obama and win this election.
Tell me out in terms of going to the other day other candidates in Republican Party and I know that you've endorsed governor Romney.
I'm curious with them according think there's a bit of better glasses -- and has a stronger chance of that doing better.
Governor Huntsman are senator Rick Santorum knowing the voters of Republican voters in New Hampshire.
Well certainly Jon Huntsman as focused.
All of his attention really on New Hampshire so he's been here quite a bit.
I think he is a candidate to watch but I don't think in terms of winning New Hampshire but in a second or third position.
I think senator Santorum will get someone of a bomb from Iowa he -- -- single digits you'll probably move on a single digits.
But really if you look at his strategy over the last two months it's been a one state strategy.
He has been in New Hampshire but he doesn't have as strong a grassroots organization -- Mitt Romney does.
But certainly looking at governor Huntsman how much he's been here I would keep my eye on him.
If people I say that dead people of New Hampshire and an independent mind and as a sort of -- about the coming out of Iowa I is that just do you win Iowa and then he got New Hampshire and get a rude awakening around.
Governor Romney did win Iowa but in the past it's been sort of -- hard.
If he doesn't have a strong showing is that a huge blow to governor Romney is set -- -- Not fatal but setback.
Well New Hampshire rotors -- certainly have an independent streak.
That's why -- state motto is live free or die.
But governor Romney has -- here so he's very strong campaign I've seen that support on -- ground level.
A great activist conservative activists supporting him.
So I think he's gonna do very well in New Hampshire and he's done those town halls he was doing it.
Today in Manchester in Peterborough is getting that enthusiastic response that you want to see a week before the primary.
According pays a bigger issue out of voters' minds and in New Hampshire social issues are.
I think the biggest issue is going to be the same issue as my campaign when I ran you know a year ago.
Which is suspending this size of government.
And the state of our economy right now that those are the primary issues on New Hampshire voters' minds.
And I hear it my own town hall meetings and I think that's what's gonna be the issue in this primary.
Which is an -- because governor Romney's experience.
You're -- say really -- it every your voters are concerned that.
When you look at every can every -- Republican Party says.
He or she won the -- Tina wants to cut spending and -- -- -- so they also have a little bit of that message I guess.
Well absolutely I mean certainly all the Republicans in the field.
Unlike this president know that we need to cut back spending I think governor Romney having the experience of going near -- state like Massachusetts having to deal.
With a supermajority of Democrats in the legislature being able to actually.
Balance the budget and go from a deficit to a surplus that's the type of leadership were gonna need in Washington.
Step up to rein in the out of control spending and really get our fiscal house in order.
Senate hearing and of course we are watching very -- -- and that's -- not near state thank you.
