MILFORD, N.H. - Presidential hopeful John McCain isn't letting snow get in the way of his Straight Talk Express in New Hampshire.

The Arizona senator has hired a snowplow to help make sure he gets to campaign events though snow, sleet and freezing rain on Saturday.

"We've got one leading the convoy of vehicles," said campaign spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker. "We are prepared for this New Hampshire weather."

McCain had events scheduled in Nashua and Milford in southern New Hampshire, before heading more than an hour and a half north to Lebanon and returning to the southern part of the state for a house party in Bow.

About a foot of snow fell overnight in much of the state. Sleet and rain were expected Saturday.
