David Axelrod spoke to business leaders gathered for a "Politics and Eggs" breakfast in Manchester. “We don’t have the wind at our backs this election,” the former White House senior adviser said. “We have the wind in our face because the American people have the wind in their faces. This is going to be a titanic struggle.”
Politics and Eggs, which began in 1996, is a regular stop for presidential candidates. John McCain, Joe Biden, John Kerry, George W. Bush & Al Gore are among the past participants.
This year, Politics & Eggs has hosted Republican Presidential Candidates Gov. Rick Perry and former Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who has since dropped out of the race. The event was co-hosted by the New England Council & New Hampshire Institute of Politics.
