Republican Campaigns in New Hampshire, Heads For Ohio
GOFFSTOWN, N.H. (AP) - John McCain has been campaigning in New Hampshire, and asking voters to "come out one more time" on his behalf. He told a crowd this morning that he's planning to "come from behind" and win the White House. The two-time winner of the New Hampshire primary is behind in the state by as much as 7 percentage points. Among other themes, McCain hit Barack Obama, a former constitutional law professor, for being an "academic." He says Obama "talks about our economy and taxes in an academic way" but forgets that the goal isn't "to redistribute wealth but to create it." McCain heads to Ohio next, where he'll hold two rallies with running mate Sarah Palin. He'll then head to Florida, where Obama also is ahead in the polls.
