Sounds of the Stretch Run

Nov 4, 2002

If you haven't seen an earnest and energetic campaign worker waving a sign today, you probably haven't left your house.

In a last ditch effort to rally the committed and sway the undecided, the candidates and their supporters have been covering as much ground as they possibly can and as visibly as they can.

In the tight race for U.S. Senate, Governor Jeanne Shaheen spent the waning hours in Merrimack, Concord and Bedford. Congressman John Sununu was in Nashua, leading a rally attended by former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Dover, Franklin and New London received gubernatorial Republican candidate Craig Benson while his Democratic opponent, Mark Fernald made his last minute pitch in Manchester and Nashua.

NHPR's Josh Rogers captured the closing sounds of the campaign and prepared this audio postcard.
