MANCHESTER, NH -- Supporters of U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign held events Thursday, August 14th across New Hampshire and throughout the country for the first "McCain Nation" national event day. Supporters met at house parties in all 50 states and will continue to recruit volunteers, organize grassroots activities, make voter contact phone calls, and register new voters as Election Day nears.
Across the country, John McCain's supporters invited friends, family and co-workers into their homes to participate in this grassroots effort. Supporters at more than 40 events in New Hampshire participated in a conference call with Cindy McCain and McCain campaign senior adviser Charlie Black.
"McCain Nation' is alive and well in New Hampshire," said State Rep. Bea Francoeur, who hosted an event in Nashua. "Tonight's successful event reflects strong grassroots support for John McCain's campaign in the Granite State. As we move into the home stretch of campaign season, this network will help lead McCain to the White House."
Cindy McCain said, "The McCain Nation events that took place around the country this evening show just how energized our grassroots campaign has become. It's the American people who are the best spokespeople for our campaign, and that will help ensure victory in November."
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani surprised the McCain Nation party attendees with an unannounced call. He talked about the importance of this election and took questions from McCain supporters.
