Next week New Hampshire will hold the first-in-the-nation primary. Unlike the Iowa Caucuses earlier this week, New Hampshire voters will simply vote who they’d like to see as their party’s candidate for President.
Many political experts have suggested that in light of Trump’s second place finish in Iowa, he will lose steam, and supporters, if he doesn’t win New Hampshire, making the primary a must-win for him.
He will have help from many in upstate New York, including Assemblyman Bill Nojay. Nojay sat down with News 8’s Allison Warren and says a large group of more than 50 plans to fill a bus and head to New Hampshire before the caucuses. Nojay says the group includes everyone from college students to retirees, with everything in between. He even adds there are some Democrats or Independents that now support Trump.
The group will knock on doors, make calls and help the campaign in any way they can. They say it’s important the Trump campaign knows they have plenty of support from the empire state.
Nojay does admit that Trump hasn’t shied away from controversy and it’s not without risk for a politician to align themselves with him, however, Nojay says he’s more focused on the country’s need for new, real leadership and he believes Trump has a vision.
Much of the group leaves for New Hampshire February 4th, but because the bus was too full, Nojay says he will drive on his own and arrive in time for the weekend, last-minute campaigning before Tuesday.
