McCain supporters seem to be winning today's sign wars, but it's early.
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) - He may be in second place in most national polls, but Sen. John McCain appears to be in first place in the early banner battle here in Manchester.
I eyeballed more campaign signs and banners for the Arizona Republican than any other candidate as I made the drive from downtown Manchester to the debate site at Saint Anselm College.
It’s early though, and the sign wars could change as the day goes on.
One other note, I witnessed more signs around Manchester for the Democrats on Sunday than I’ve seen for the Republicans today. That could be real live evidence out on the streets of what the polls show, that Democratic voters are much more energized than their GOP counterparts.
CNN, WMUR, and the New Hampshire Union Leader are sponsoring tonight’s Republican Presidential Debate. The action kicks off at 7pm ET. The three organizations sponsored a Democratic Presidential Debate on Sunday night.
