CONCORD, N.H. – Presidential campaigning is back in full post-Thanksgiving swing in New Hampshire, with former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie heading to the state for events.

O’Malley kicks off Monday with a tour of Velcro Companies in Manchester. He’ll then host a town hall in North Conway and a meet-and-greet in the late afternoon in Somersworth. O’Malley’s 3-stop tour comes after his speech Sunday night at the state Democratic party’s annual dinner.

Rubio returns for a town hall meeting in Laconia early Monday afternoon and to attend a barbecue hosted by former senator Scott Brown in Rye in the evening. Brown is hosting events for many of the GOP candidates.

Christie is hosting a town hall Monday evening in Loudon.

New Hampshire hosts the nation’s first presidential primary election on Feb. 9, 2016, eight days after the Iowa caucuses.
