new hampshire takes pride in hosting the first in the nation primary. granite state voters explain why our state deserves especial position. congress doesn't regulate wall street... wall street regulates congress. it's a rigged economy that sends most new wealth to the top 1%. and it's held in place by a corrupt political system where wall street banks and billionaires buy elections. my campaign is funded by over two and a
half million small contributions. people who know you can't level the playing field by taking more money from wall street.
and i approve this message. join the fight to take back our government. marco rubio. he ran for senate saying he
opposed amnesty... then he flipped, and worked with liberal chuck schumer to co-author the path to citizenship bill. he threatened to vote against it. he supported his own dream act and then he abandoned it. marco rubio. politician you can't trust. jeb bush. so you always know where he stands. is responsible for the
tom: the building that' s home to boston' s iconic
citgo sign is going up for sale. the current owner boston university announced today that it has hired a broker to manager the sale of several buildings in kenmore square, including the one topped by the sign. a billboard company owns the sign and leases space from b.u.. the new owners will get to decide whether to continue that lease. granite staters take pride in vetting presidential candidates in a way few other states do. it' s part of what makes new hampshire so special, voters are ready to learn, and make decisions based on months of information they' ve gathered. here' s wmur political reporter adam sexton. >> the granite state is a great place. >> they gotta come here. adam the road to the white house : begins on new hampshire' s main streets but why? why is it that a small new england state plays such an outsized role in deciding who
we asked the voters themselves. re leaders within the nation. i really enjoy the fact that we bring up the questions, we bring up the points that really need to be discussed. adam: granite staters want more than bumperstickers, they want >> there' s all the jokes about t met them 3 times how should i know if i should vote for them? but really it gives them an inside window to how candidates act. adam for many in new hampshire : automated phone calls and campaign ads are just bull. quick you don' t any -- get any feeling or human contact from them if you' re sitting in front of the widescreen watching some advertising. >> it' s not always about what' s on the media, so if you go and see them in person, which is great that we have that opportunity in new hampshire, then you can get to know more about them. adam here the old ways survive, : like a good old fashioned yankee ability to size people up. >> i like to get a feel for whether they' re really genuine,
what they' re doing, whether they are nice. adam not every granite stater is : a fan of the primary. some think the idea that new hampshire has a knack for spotting leadership is just spin. >> are we good? i' m not convinced that we' re so good at picking presidents. i' m not sure we' re so different, i think it' s probably related to tradition. >> i think sometimes it gets carried to extremes. adam true believers point to the : nature of citizenship here; the importance of the town meeting. >> i think we feel we' re responsible for what goes on in our towns. >> new hampshire voters are personal on the small town level. they know their selectmen, they know the trustees at the cemetery. and we expect that look in my eyes and tell me what you really mean. adam the result, an electorate : unimpressed by titles or political a claim. people quite willing to challenge those seeking to lead the free world. >> just kind of the way we are born and raised in small communities, you'
to talk to your neighbor, so you just kind of treat those guys the same way. >> it filters out a lot of the wanna-bes because i think new england people in general kind of see through a lot of the curtains that they have up. >> we' re the first state they usually always come to, and a lot of the candidates go to individual homes, so you can get a one-on-one perspective of what they' re doing instead of going to a large auditorium. adam in a country plagued by : voter apathy new hampshire is tirelessly engaged and well-aware of the responsibility that comes with being in the first nation. s a privilege. >> if you' re not involved, then you can' t complain about the adam adam sexton, wmur news 9. :mike:
lapse for today in market square, lots of sunshine, a knife right day. on the chilly side but seasonably so. temperature is by no means well below the average. close to the norm for this time of year. seasonably chilly right through that stretch. now we get to talk of the nor' easter. it will be tracking well to the south, as has been the case over the last few days with the storm track. there is a slight chance that the northern edge of the heavy bins of snow may wander into parts of southern new england and the northern edge of one of those bands could produce some light snow in far southern new hampshire late saturday afternoon and saturday night. right and not as cold as we go into sunday and on into monday. that' s an overview of the next few days.
south, lower single digits in parts of new hampshire. even though the winds have come down quite a bit, still active. went chill of five below in white bill -- in mike field. -- end whitefield. 10-14 along the coast , a lot of cold air drifting in and out of canada and with that of contrasted air mass setting up shop from the southeast into and lower mississippi valley. at 36. is where the major storm is beginning to fire up. cold air wrapping in on the backside with heavy snow in parts of arkansas, of all places.
for tonight, fair skies, sunshine all day tomorrow but not as gusty as today. once we get into saturday, the sun gives into thickening clouds. should be a bright day to start off the weekend. the closest run this nor' easter gets to new hampshire will be saturday night. it is out of here by early sunday morning. having said that, the northern edge of the snow will likely creep into northern massachusetts and may scoot over the border up to about manchester or concord. if that happens, a light accumulation of to an inch or two inches cannot be ruled out. look at all the advisories well off to the south. that is where the blockbuster snow amounts will pile up tomorrow and lasting through the day on saturday and into early sunday. light snow tries to creep into parts of southern new hampshire.
the storm bears watching. we will call for a little bit of light snow in southern new hampshire late saturday into saturday night he read the rest of the weekend is dry and next weekend we warm-up well above freezing. stay tuned for important updates tomorrow morning. tom: we don' t have to worry about the patriots because they will be in denver for the weekend. here's the truth -- some have proposed to cut social security for the elderly and disabled vets. i disagree. in fact, not only should we not cut benefits -- we should expand them. my plan for social security increases
benefits and cost of living adjustments and raises minimum payments for low-income seniors. it will ensure that all seniors can retire with dignity and respect. i'm bernie sanders,
new day for america is responsible for the content of this advertising. who do you like in this election? not sure yet. whoever gets
something done. we've gone from eight billion in the hole, to two billion in the black. we've cut taxes and we're growing from a loss of three hundred fifty thousand jobs, to a gain of three hundred forty-seven thousand jobs. what do you think? kasich. kasich. kasich. that's a funny name. he brought back jobs both from china as well as mexico and i don't believe another
the person who lives here... has to solve problems as big as the world... and as small as your kitchen table. that's the job.
everyday. and now, the first lady who helped get healthcare for eight million kids... the senator who helped a city rise again... the secretary of state who stood up for america, and stared down hostile leaders around the world. is the one candidate for president who has everything it takes to do every part of the job she'll never let anyone privatize
or shut down planned parenthood... she'll take on the gun lobby... finally get equal pay for women... and stop the republicans from ripping all our progress away. so on february ninth, stand up for hillary. because if you want a president who knows how to keep america safe... and build a stronger economy... hillary's the choice.
