    Companies owned by Donald Trump have reportedly tried to import at least 1,100 foreign workers since 2000. A Reuters review [link at URL] of Labor Department data found that Trump Enterprises have requested temporary work visas for over a thousand foreign workers. ... The desired workers include waitresses, cooks, vineyard workers, as well as positions as assistant golf-course superintendent, assistant hotel manager and banquet manager. ... Reuters found that most of the visa requests were granted, as Trump has vowed to create and protect jobs for American workers. ... The Labor Department data did not specify the nationality of the...

    Daylen Brickley, a baby from the US state of New Hampshire, is the proud owner of a lifetime permit to hunt and fish - the first license holder under a new program. His fishing license is valid, but he will need to complete a hunter safety course before receiving that permit. His mother, Erica Brickley, is not concerned about his future training. The whole family was raised around hunting and fishing, "so I figure he'll kind of get in the swing of things". "It was only natural to kind of keep it going," she told the New Hampshire Union Leader.

Above all, it was the experience of viewing, on today's Morning Joe, a stunning focus group of New Hampshire Republicans who were uniformly and enthusiastically pro-Trump, saying things...

Other “problematic” words on the taxpayer-funded school’s lengthy list include “mothering,” “fathering,” “healthy,” “homosexual,” “rich,” “poor” and “senior citizen,” notes Campus Reform. The goal of the politically-correct UNH Bias-Free Language Guide is “to invite inclusive excellence” on the public campus.

Most local and national Democrats see Hassan as the party’s best shot at winning the seat on the way to taking back the...

Not at a Trump house party. For Trump's recent gathering in neighboring Bedford, his campaign arranged for the use of a nearby church parking lot, and then rented large white vans (marked "TRUMP") to shuttle the 200 or so guests in air-conditioned comfort. When Trump arrives, it's in one of two matching black SUVs. When he walks, he is surrounded by a phalanx of a half dozen guys wearing dark suits and earpieces—more than the number of real agents typically surrounding Hillary Clinton, who, as the spouse of a former president, actually is entitled to Secret Service protection.</p>

    Education remains separate and unequal nearly everywhere in the United States, but Confederate-flag-waving Southerners aren’t responsible for the most racially divided schools. That title goes to New York, where 64 percent of black students attend schools with few, if any, white students, according to a recent report by the Civil Rights Project. In fact, the Northeast is the only region where the percentage of black students in extremely segregated schools — those where at least 90 percent of students are minorities — is higher than it was in the 1960s. Schools in the South, on the other hand, saw the...

If the 30-day residency requirement became law, someone who moves to the state in August and planned to stay couldn't vote in a September primary. Anyone can now register to vote on Election Day in New Hampshire. Supporters of the 30-day requirement said it would help prevent voter fraud.

    Gorham, New Hampshire (CNN)—Hillary Clinton's campaign used a rope to keep journalists away from the candidate on Saturday while she walked in this small town's July Fourth parade. The ensuing photos of journalists, including a CNN reporter, being somewhat dragged by a thin white rope as Clinton walked down Main Street caught fire online. Initially, Clinton's campaign was not using a rope to corral the press, allowing journalists to get close to her and ask her questions. But campaign aides said they brought the rope out because they feared the press scrum of around a dozen reporters and photojournalists would...

    Fourth of July parade just ended. 81F and cloudy, fairly humid. We make the politicians go last. Lots of O'Malley and Sanders signs in the small Democrat section. One Hillary sign, holder ran by fast. Krispy Kreme came next, with about 40 sign holders. Walked down the double yellow line waving, eyes straight ahead. Looked like he couldn't wait to get away. I knew he was big, but OMG is he big. Surprised he made it up the last hill. Rubio was next. Shook every hand, selfies with every teenaged girl, kissed every baby. Looks young and vigorous. Hung around...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz stood next to former New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien on Friday and called Sen. Kelly Ayotte “a friend.” He also called embattled U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta “a good man." Cruz would not say whether he agreed with O’Brien that Ayotte should face a primary next year, saying that he is “focused on my own primary.” (SNIP) And I think it is incumbent on every elected official to make the case to his or her constituents that we’re going to do the job we’re elected to do. And so I will leave those suggestions to the...

    This is a disturbing, or perhaps better described as heartbreaking story which popped up this weekend and set off all sorts of alarm bells for me. NBC News is featuring the tale of a child named Lia (until recently, Liam) who is being fully encouraged and supported by his parents on a “journey” to become a girl. The child is ten years old and began this “trip” at the age of five. We moved from Indiana to New Hampshire when Lia was 4. She was still wearing boys’ clothes and playing with trucks through preschool, but she really wanted girl...

    CONCORD – Ted Cruz won by a vote. The senator from Texas and Republican presidential candidate edged former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, the only female running for the GOP nomination, to come in first in a New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women straw poll. Ninety-four people voted in the straw poll, which was conducted Monday at the group’s 50th annual Lilac Luncheon, which was held at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord.Cruz had 21 votes to Fiorina's 20.Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky came in third, with 10 votes. Ohio Gov. John Kasich grabbed 9 votes, followed by Wisconsin Gov....

    Donald Trump — yes, that Donald Trump — is edging every single GOP candidate running for president in an early primary state except for one, a new Suffolk University poll finds. He’s polling at 11 percent overall in New Hampshire, and thus only trails the nominal frontrunner, Jeb Bush, by three percentage points: The results are mystifying, in part because The Donald’s favorables are deeply underwater (37/49), and in part because only 60 percent of the poll’s 500 respondents want him on-stage debating other candidates. Nevertheless, the director of the university’s Political Research Center, David Paleologos, provides a plausible explanation...

    Is it worth caring about this, knowing that a socialist from the northeast has zero chance of beating Hillary in a national primary, just for the ephemeral pleasure of watching Clintonworld dissolve into a pool of angst if they drop an early state?I’m leaning towards “yes.” According to a survey released Tuesday by Suffolk University, 41% of likely Democratic primary voters said if the Granite State presidential primary was held today, they’d vote for Hillary Clinton, with 31% saying they’d back Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.Until now, Clinton has been the overwhelming frontrunner for the Democratic nomination in just...

    New Hampshire utility ratepayers will pay a Taiwanese company $1.22 million to build the state’s largest solar installation so that a small town can save about $500,000 in power costs over the life of the project. Taiwan’s Walsin Lihwa, parent company of Borrego Solar, will use Chinese-made solar panels in the 3.5-acre project, which is supposed to be finished in July. It will supply power to several municipal buildings in the area but only some of the time: the town of Peterborough (population: 6,284) gets only 197 sunny days per year. “What a great project,” deadpanned David Kreutzer, a senior...

    A group of prominent New Hampshire Republicans has written an open letter to Fox News and the Republican National Committee, urging them to reconsider the criteria for the Republican primary debates on the network. The letter, signed by 56 Republicans, including former governors, members of Congress, state legislators and delegates, warns that the current criteria threatens to “undermine the very nature of our process and the valuable service that states like New Hampshire provide to voters across the country." Under the criteria for the first Fox debate on Aug. 6 in Cleveland, candidates must place "in the top 10 of...
