A recent poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center found Giuliani tied with Sen. John McCain among front-running Republican candidates in the view of New Hampshire voters. The survey interviewed 664 randomly selected New Hampshire likely primary voters by telephone Included in the sample were 353 likely 2008 Democratic voters and 311 likely 2008 Republican primary voters. National polls currently show him as the top Republican candidate.

Twenty-eight percent of likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters say they will vote for McCain, 27 percent for Giuliani; 13 percent favor former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, and 9 percent back former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. There are 12 other official and potential Republican candidates and 11 official and potential Democratic contenders.

"We're really excited to be able to offer this opportunity to our members and the Greater Seacoast community," said Dick Ingram, chamber president. "We're also honored the campaign is coming to our community to share its message. As we get closer to the elections in 2008, we are hoping to present some of the other candidates and their ideas in similar forums. Hopefully this is just the beginning."
