NH Braces for Weekend Invasion of "Doves" - and More

June 1, 2007

Goffstown, NH - Two nights of debates, 18 candidates, and the first primary in the nation. Add springtime in New Hampshire, and what do you get? Activists say local voters get the chance to help shape national policy for years to come. That's why Saint Anselm College in Goffstown is bracing for hundreds of peace activists from across the state and throughout New England, in addition to upwards of 400 reporters and countless campaign supporters. Ann Miller of New Hampshire Peace Action says it's not about who wins or loses, but what the winner will do.

“The purpose of the action on Sunday is to communicate that we want the war to end now, and we want our troops brought home. It's not directed at any particular candidate but at changing our policy in Iraq.”

Miller notes that the national news media is already commenting on the growing peace sentiment among New Hampshire voters. She believes the spotlight on New Hampshire gives voters here more power than just our four electoral votes.

“New Hampshire has a really unique opportunity during the next six months to have a disproportionate amount of power in terms of the electoral process in choosing our next president.”

Sunday's debate takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. and will be broadcast on WMUR in Manchester, and nationally on CNN. Republican candidates will debate at St. Anselm College on Tuesday.
