Democratic presidential candidate John Delaney campaigns in NH
About 30 people gathered at the Peterborough Town Library for a meet and greet pizza lunch with Democratic presidential hopeful and Maryland Congressman John Delaney.
The event was held by the chairman of the New Hampshire Chapter of the High School Democrats, Dublin School student Owen Mortner.
Sunday was Delaney’s seventh trip to the Granite State. So far he is the only Democrat to announce his candidacy.
“A lot of people are running, but they are just not being honest about it,” Delaney said.
Delaney said he flew in Sunday morning and started his day meeting with a small group of voters before the library event. After the event wrapped up Delaney headed to Keene for a house party.
Delaney said he wants people to get to know him now while the field is clear.
“I think I am the right person. I have the right vision, but not enough people know me so I’m going to solve that problem by jumping in early,” Delaney said.
