DURHAM, New Hampshire – Robert Haines, an obscure candidate running for president, was removed twice by police officers from the press room at Wednesday night's GOP debate on the campus of the University of New Hampshire.
Haines was dressed in a cowboy suit and was lingering around the building. On his way out the door he waved.
Brian Lawson, who runs a New Hampshire primary blog, says Haines is a normal fixture on the New Hampshire political circuit.
"He regularly stands across the street from the Manchester City Hall, holding a sign 'Robert Haines for President,' and he normally gets removed from events," Lawson said.
