McCain/Palin Campaign Coming to Peterborough?

PETERBOROUGH - Sen. John McCain's campaign has reserved the Peterborough Town House for a Sunday night event, according to Pamela L. Brenner, Peterborough's town administrator.

The Republican presidential candidate from Arizona is expected to appear, though his campaign has not confirmed his appearance.

"The plans are still under the works," Brenner said. "These things are changing almost daily at this point."

A campaign spokesman said the campaign was not yet in a position to confirm any details.

The building has been reserved for an event that is tentatively scheduled to run from 7 to 8 p.m.

The Peterborough Town House is the same building in which the Republican from Arizona ended his Granite State primary campaigns in 2000 and 2008. McCain captured New Hampshire in both of those elections.

And on Friday, Keene native and Congresswoman Heather Wilson, R-N.M., will be returning to the Elm City to campaign on behalf of McCain.

Wilson will be at Keene State College for a roundtable on engaging young people in service to their country, according to the McCain campaign.

Wilson, a Keene High School graduate, will be in the Young Student Center's Lantern Room at 10:45 a.m.
