No cameras

Aspiring YouTubers, you'll have to catch former attorney general and likely Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte outside Wolfeboro.

Winnipesaukee GOP Leader Chris Ahlgren said that while reporters and photographers are welcome to their meeting with Ayotte on Tuesday night, he wants to keep out video cameras.

"We're trying to keep the social to be a social and not a media frenzy event," he said. This isn't coming from Ayotte he said - "this is purely from our end." What he hopes, he said, is that Winni GOP-ers can speak and ask questions without being "intimidated by cameras rolling."
