HAMPTON - After sending campaign aides to the state to discuss faith issues and sponsor clubs focused on reading his books, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama will be coming back to New Hampshire later this week. This visit will include a stop in Hampton.

The Democrat presidential candidate, who currently ranks second in the local and national polls, will speak in the gymnasium of the Marston Elementary School, 3 Marston Way, just off High Street, on Friday, July 20. Doors to the event open at 8:30 a.m.

Obama is expected to speak, then take questions from the audience. One of the topics of discussion will undoubtedly be the war in Iraq, but the candidate will also answer questions on other issues of interest to those who attend, said his New Hampshire Campaign Director Reid Cherlin.

The event is free and open to the public. However, an RSVP is strongly encouraged. To RSVP, please call Katie at (603) 433-7001 or via the web at http://nh.barackobama.com.

On Thursday, Obama will be in Sunapee for an ice cream social. He will speak at the BenMere Bandstand at Sunapee Harbor, at the corner of Lake and River streets. Ice cream will be served at 4:45 p.m.

This event is also free and open to the public. Due to space limitations, RSVP is required by calling Abby at (603) 355-2008 or by visiting http://nh.barackobama.com.
