Republican Lindsey Graham is set to take part in a candidate forum Monday morning in Derry. But it's his plans for next weekend that may help boost his profile in the Granite State.

According to multiple news outlets, the South Carolina U.S. Senator will campaign with Arizona Senator John McCain, one of Graham’s closest Senate allies and a two-time winner of the first in the nation presidential primary.

Graham is hardly alone among Republican presidential hopefuls in New Hampshire, however. New Jersey governor Chris Christie will hold three days of events, starting with a town hall meeting event Monday night in Keene. That’s the same city where Ohio governor John Kasich will take questions from voters on Friday.

New Hampshire could be more Republicans later in the week, just ahead of next week's Voters First Forum hosted by the New Hampshire Union Leader.

Democrats, meanwhile, will get another chance to see former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who returns Tuesday for a town hall event in Nashua and a visit to Beech Hill Farm in Hopkinton.
