Granite state voters don't normally get all hot and bothered over campaign surrogates.
First-in-the-nation residents expect to see the actual candidate 7 or 8 times, so who cares about the candidate's friend?
But this "candidate's friend", this time, might be different.
Because Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling is coming to Manchester on Wednesday, December 5th to do a campaign meet and greet with Senator McCain.
Mr. Bloody Sock.
Mr. Red Sox Two World Championships.
Mr. I Bring The Gas In Clutch Situations & You Love Me For It Red Sox Nation.
Mr. I Love John McCain So Let Me Sign Some Autographs, Take Some Pictures And Tell You All About It.
This could work out well.
Certainly better than a typical Granite State presidential surrogate.
