Concord, NH - They're knee-deep in politics - and snow - in New Hampshire. Service Employees International Union (SEIU) members from across the country have volunteered to help their Granite State brothers and sisters push for healthcare reform in Tuesday's primary election. It's a national issue for the union, but some out-of-state volunteers, including Stephanie Switzer from central California, got quite the surprise when they hit the streets in New Hampshire.

"I have never worn so many clothes at one time in my life, let alone walked in thigh-deep snow just to get to a front door! But I would go through 12 feet of snow just to get the message out."

New Hampshire SEIU member Diana Lacey says deep snow or no, having the out-of-towners around is a boost for local activists.

"It's just great to see that we're all fighting for the same thing, universal coverage, and we're coming together, because it's happening everywhere. It's no longer just isolated to New Hampshire, it's all over the country."

The union wants the next President to set up a universal health insurance plan. Some of the candidates are backing that, while others argue a national health care system would lead to socialized medicine.
