A trip north for votes and laughs

President Obama will continue his campaign today in New England. A Manchester, NH rally will start the day. Obama will be fighting for the four electoral votes when he goes to energize the crowd and encourages them to vote. Absentee ballot-voting has begun but voters can not vote in-person in New Hampshire by absentee. Campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Wednesday that the results of the debate have not changed how they are running this race. They say they continue to run like they are five points behind.

After New Hampshire, the president will make a stop in New York City for a couple of events. First he’ll show his witty side when he tapes an appearance on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”. Then he’ll attend the 67th Annual Alfred. E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner at the Waldorf Towers in New York City. This election season dinner is in honor of the memory of Governor Alfred E. Smith and is generally a light-hearted speech. The interesting thing about this event is that Mitt Romney is also expected to speak at the dinner but no word if they will have any more interactions before their final debate next Monday night in Florida.
