John McCain Not So Popular in Parts of New Hampshire Anymore

Posted: Jan 10, 2012 8:03 AM

Former GOP presidential nominee and Senator John McCain didn't exactly receive a warm welcome when his name was mentioned during a Rick Santorum campaign event yesterday.

When Santorum reminded them of the 2008 Republican nominee, the people of this small New Hampshire town bordering Maine wanted none of it.

“Let’s put up Bob Dole, because it’s his turn,” Santorum said ironically of the 1996 GOP nominee. “Let’s put up John McCain, because it’s his turn.”

Some in the crowd started booing, while others cried out “No!”
