Every Friday leading up to Election Day, we’ll check in with PolitiFact to find out just how truthful the candidates have been on the campaign trail. PolitiFact New Hampshire is a partnership of The Telegraph in Nashua and the national PolitiFact.com, a project of the Tampa Bay Times.  The goal is to help you find the truth in politics.  They research candidates’ statements and then rate their accuracy on the Truth-O-Meter.   Morning Edition host Rick Ganley talks with the Telegraph’s managing editor for content, Jonathan Van Fleet.

In this conversation:

-Speaker Bill O'Brien responds to his "half-true" rating last week

-Fact check on a claim made by former Congresswoman Carol Shea Porter, who is running against Republican Frank Guinta in the state’s First Congressional District.
