Republican presidential candidate and Texas Governor Rick Perry held a town hall meeting at the Adams Memorial Opera House in Derry, New Hampshire. He answered questions from the audience about climate change, social security, taxes and spending. This is the Governor’s first town hall meeting in the Granite State since announcing his campaign for President in August.
In a poll of New Hampshire Republican voters this week conducted by Suffolk University, Governor Perry came in fourth place with 8 percent of the vote, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney came in first with 41 percent followed by Congressman Ron Paul and former Utah Governor Huntsman with 14 and 10 percent of the vote respectively.
New Hampshire Secretary of State William Gardner indicated that New Hampshire could move its primary into 2011 because Florida moved its primary up several weeks to January 31.
