McCain to join Brown for N.H. town hall
U.S. Sen. John McCain will join Scott Brown at a town hall event Monday.
The two will appear together at Pinkerton Academy in Derry for a discussion focused on foreign policy, Brown spokeswoman Lizzy Guyton said. The event is set to begin at 10 a.m. Brown, who is running for U.S. Senate, is hosting a series of town halls called “New Hampshire Speaks.” He held one on Obamacare last night in Nashua and held one in Salem last week on immigration.
Brown will face former state senator Jim Rubens and former U.S. senator Bob Smith in the Sept. 9 Republican primary for the right to challenge incumbent U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen. Brown and McCain served together in the U.S. Senate from 2010 to 2013.
A spokeswoman in McCain’s office did not immediately know if he will be attending other events in New Hampshire on Monday. Last month, McCain headlined a fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Walt Havenstein in Virginia.
