McAuliffe, others offer words of hope at local church services ...

Pictured above: Governor Terry McAuliffe speaks at a church in Derry, New Hampshire

Ahead of the second primary in the nation, every candidate is barnstorming across the state of New Hampshire, and the former governor of Virginia is no exception. McAuliffe hopped on a bus this week in a weeklong tour of the state before voting commences, and political commentators took note of his appearance at Derry Church of Christ, in which Terry McAuliffe respectfully observed the sermon before heading to a campaign rally at a nearby auditorium. 

Speaking to the thousands of New Hampshire residents that have repeatedly listed healthcare as their top priority, Governor McAuliffe took the stage and promised to voters that under his system, their healthcare would be cheaper and more effective. 

"What Obama accomplished was amazing, even now folks. But we have to build on that. We have folks here in this very state who are struggling to pay medical bills that just keep piling up. We have pharmaceutical companies that are creating patents and selling medicine that costs pennies on the dollar to produce for hundreds of thousands of dollars to American families who desperately need it to continue their fight. When I am elected president, I am going to fix that. We are going to go after these companies and we are going to ensure that every American has access to healthcare that is affordable and prescriptions that are reasonable. We are going to make deductibles go down, we are going to expand your coverage, and for the millions of Americans without coverage at all, we WILL get you on our plan. 

Obama laid the framework for this system. 12 years ago, America voted for change that would better the lives of every American. I can promise to continue that fight. We are going to include everyone in this campaign. We are going to fight for everyone. We are going to restore decency to this political system, and we are going to defeat the circus clown in the White House!"

At UVA, Governor Signs Non-Discrimination Order for State ...

Governor Terry McAuliffe, holding a copy of the executive order he signed banning LGBT discrimination among Virginia state employees

The McAuliffe campaign attempted to strengthen the governor's traditional liberal support by boasting his record in Virginia as a leader who fought for the LGBT community. Terry organized a "Fight for inclusivity" event in Concord, New Hampshire, where he invited voters to hear him speak about how he intends to tackle a number of social issues. Taking the podium, the governor spoke about his record on fighting for the LGBT community in Virginia. 

"Folks, no matter who you are, you are an American. You are a part of this campaign. Our flag does not discriminate based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or whatever else. What people get up to in their own private lives is not the government's business and never should have been! I have long been a fighter for the LGBT community in Virginia, and as governor I worked to ensure that not only was the amazing community protected in Virginia, but that we fostered an understanding of sexual orientation and gender identity in our youth to help tackle the hatred and ignorance that leads to the discrimination that plagues these communities. 

I fought with even members of my own party to ensure that Virginia schools included curriculum that introduces students in grades seven and eight to concepts including sexual orientation and gender identity. One of my first executive orders upon taking office was to ban all LGBT discrimination in the state department among state employees. Making this nation more open and welcoming to all is an essential part of my campaign. I am proud of the progress we have made together in Virginia on ending workplace discrimination, embracing the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage and finally allowing same-sex couples to adopt.

I look forward to continuing to work with my friends in the LGBT community to advocate for polices that make America more open and equal to everyone. The Democratic Party, and America as a whole, stands with our LGBT community.

Trump tweets out that the Trump campaign HQ for New Hampshire has a special guest, Fmr. Gov. Steve Merrill who is endorsing Pres. Trump. Trump tweet: "New Hampshire! Trump HQ on stage Fmr. Gov. Steve Merrill! Very Soon! Don't forget to vote! Keep America Great!"

Merrill comes out and says that he is fully backing President Trump for re-election. He discusses that when he was governor he was selected twice as the most fiscally responsible governor in the country. He brings that up to say that Trump is businessman and has grown the economy creating opportunity for everyone. He then notes how he worked for Fmr. Gov. John Sununu, and is disappointed to disagree with Sununu's son. Merrill then mentions that he is known for the phrase "The New Hampshire Advantage" and if anyone has that it is President Donald J. Trump.

The campaign of Terry McAuliffe blows a large amount of campaign funds on television and radio ads for upcoming Super Tuesday states, attempting to reach out to undecided voters in these states before opposing campaigns have moved on from the earliest primary states. These campaign ads are positive in nature, and make no mention of his fellow Democrats running for the Democratic nomination. 

"America needs a leader who can fight for the underrepresented, and Terry have proven that he is exactly that. 

In Virginia, Governor McAuliffe fought against Republicans and Democrats alike in his battle for stronger LBGT protections in the workplace. 

America needs a leader who can take the reigns of a crisis, and Terry is that leader. 

After a white supremacist domestic terrorist took action in Charlottesville, Terry declared a state of emergency and ensured justice for the community. 

America needs a leader who will fight for the voting rights of all Americans, and Terry is doing that right now. 

Terry has called over and over for the end of unconstitutional voter disenfranchisement, and will fight to protect voting rights for ALL Americans. 

America needs a leader who can create jobs, and Terry has done that. 

In Virginia, employment went up in every single county during Terry's term, and in some countries this was more than a 50% increase!

A vote for Terry is a vote for a proven leader who can lead America through crisis. Terry can create jobs across America. Terry is fighting for Americans and has been for years. Vote for Terry McAuliffe and vote to restore effectiveness and normalcy to America after four disastrous years of failed president Donald Trump."

Kuster Disputes Bill She Voted For Would 'Pause' Syrian, Iraqi ...

Governor Terry McAuliffe receives the endorsement of the other Democratic Representative of New Hampshire, Ann Kuster

In the final week of the New Hampshire campaign, the McAuliffe campaign locked up the endorsement of the last statewide official of New Hampshire: Representative of Ann Kuster, who has represented New Hampshire's second district since 2013 and been a voice for moderate Democrats in the House since her election. Representative Kuster tweeted out her endorsement of Governor McAuliffe, and offered to headline his final events coming into the New Hampshire primary. 

Governor McAuliffe had strong words of praise for Kuster, who comes in at a time that McAuliffe is growing momentum in the state. "From working to tackle the opioid epidemic and increasing access to health care to honoring our pledge to our veterans and their families when they return home, Rep. Kuster has spent her career delivering results for New Hampshire families," McAuliffe said. "At a time of so much dysfunction in Washington, Representative Kuster has brought Americans together to improve the lives of her constituents. She represents the best of our politics and I'm honored to have her endorse our movement."

The two took the stage in Concord, New Hampshire, so that Representative Kuster could make an appeal to her constituents that McAuliffe is the candidate that will best fight for New Hampshire. Representative Kuster focused her speech on how McAuliffe is not only electable, but has the same charismatic appeal and vision that is shared by former President Barack Obama. 

“With our country so consumed by division, Terry McAuliffe is the leader who can finally turn the page on the Trump presidency and bring our nation together to usher in a new era where we finally solve our most urgent problems. We need a leader who recognizes that the office of the presidency has the power to bridge our differences — and Governor McAuliffe is that leader. Like Barack Obama before him, Terry is reform minded, inspiring, brings fresh ideas to the table, and is motivated to win. When it comes to health care, I'm pro-choice, and McAuliffe's plan will allow millions of Americans to have the choice between his plan and the plans that are already on the market or provided through their employer. Terry will make sure that the healthcare you receive is affordable and of the highest quality, no matter who provides it!

He has the courage to break from the past to lead us to a better future—I’m excited to endorse him to be our next president."

Romney holds a packed rally in Nashua, New Hampshire the day before the polls

first Gov. Sununu takes the stage

"Good evening New Hampshire, I hope you're feeling well enough to vote tomorrow. I implore you all to vote for Sen. Romney as you did for me twice. He embodies the experience that we need in the oval office right now. He's a man of integrity, or honor, and of values. This is the kind of person who we should elect as President. Someone who can uphold the values of our forefathers and our founding fathers and fight for our freedom of speech, freedom of press, and freedom to disagree rather than fighting against them. It is with great honor, that I welcome our special guest, Senator Susan Collins to the stage."

Susan Collins walks out to the stage

"It is with great honor, that I endorse my friend, my colleague, and fellow champion for American values, Senator Mitt Romney. As a sitting Republican Senator, and your neighbor in Maine, I am greatly disappointed in the current administration and it's lack of direction in fighting for the average American. While many Americans are looking for direction, for our federal government to implement policies that make our lives easier, our President has stalled and our congress is unable to work together to find common sense solutions for everyday problems, and I blame that, in large part, on the sitting President for stoking more divisiveness in our country. Sen. Romney has the ability to bring people together, to work towards a common goal, and that's what he has done as a Governor, that's what he has done as Senator, and that's what he'll do for this country. Without further a do, I welcome our next President, Senator Romney!"

(Romney and Susan Collins discussing shortly before the rally)

Sen. Romney walks up to the stage, shaking hands with Sen. Collins before speaking

"Thank you Senator Collins. It is with a great privilege that I wear Senator Collins' endorsement of my candidacy as a badge of honor. She has served her great state of Maine with honor and valor, always standing up for what she thinks is right. The polls show us that this is going to be a close race, and President Trump is nervous. 

It is imperative that you get out the vote. Now more than ever, our democracy is on the line. Think of the people who fight and die for our country, for our right to vote, when you cast your ballots tomorrow. When we have a Republican President incapable of leading, incapable of following the rule of law, then you're opening the floodgates for a President Elizabeth Warren. You're opening the floodgates to bring radical ideas from Berkley into Washington. These socialists and radicals who otherwise have no chance want an embattled, impeached, and embarrassed Donald Trump to be nominated for a second term so they can finally win. This is what's at stake here. We're in the middle of an existential question. Do we keep swinging from one extreme to the other, getting nothing accomplished, and generating divisiveness in our country, or do we work together despite our differences and enact common sense small government reforms that empower people? I'm running for President so I can accomplish the latter. Thank you so much and remember to get out the vote tomorrow. Do not take this responsibility lightly. Our forefathers swore to us a Republic, if you can keep it. Let's get to work on keeping it that way!"

I'd bet on a better Romney performance, considering his recent A-List endorsers. I'd personally say it'll be a very close margin for Beto or Warren.
