Trump to meet with top New Hampshire Tea Party activist

Washington (CNN)– Donald Trump plans to meet with one of New Hampshire’s leading Tea Party activists during his visit to the first-in-in-the-nation primary state on Wednesday.

CNN has learned that Trump has a sit-down in Dover this afternoon with Andrew Hemingway, chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire.

The 28-year old Hemingway is at the forefront of a newly empowered conservative movement in the state working to shape the agenda of the Republican-controlled legislature as well as the 2012 GOP primary race. He recently escorted Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann around New Hampshire during her last visit to the state.

Trump has arranged a series of private meetings with GOP officials, grassroots activists and political operatives during his maiden voyage to the state as a potential presidential candidate.

The reality television star has announced plans to meet with New Hampshire GOP Chairman Jack Kimball, but a Trump adviser would not provide details of the other meetings that are confidential, citing security reasons.

    And they will no doubt discuss making Obama's college/law school transcripts the next big conspiracy theory. Yawn.

    "Carnival Barker" – what a perfect description President Obama used today. Sound like Trump??? Now Trump is moving on to college documents while our president moves on to more important issues. Trump is the Barker and the Clown all in one. It will be interesting who lines up behind this guy. Trump said he had investigaters on the ground in Hawaii and we won't believe what they have dug up...today he won't respond to that comment, no facts, inuendo. Clown.
