WASHINGTON (CNN) - It holds the status as the first-in-the-nation presidential primary, and one would assume every New Hampshire town has been visited by at least one presidential candidate over the years.
But Democratic presidential hopeful Bill Richardson says he will become the "first ever" White House contender to set foot in Marlow (population: 747) when he travels to the Granite State later this week.
"I am excited to be the first ever presidential candidate to visit Marlow," the New Mexico governor said in a statement. "The New Hampshire primary is about meeting voters one-on-one, looking them in the eye and answering their questions. It's about time the people of Marlow had an opportunity to directly participate in this process."
In addition Marlow, Richardson has stops planned in Manchester, Nashua Amherst, Merrimack and Greenville.
