Thompson, Romney And Giuliani In New Hampshire On Monday

CONCORD -- It's a tease of early January. On Monday, all three leading Republican presidential candidates -- Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson, will spend the day campaigning in New Hampshire.

Thompson will formally file his paperwork with Secretary of State William Gardner. They may even intersect: Romney holds a major rally with supporters at 11:45 a.m. in Concord. He has anl AMA -- that's the internal lingo for an "Ask Mitt Anything" event and files with Gardner at 1:45 p.m. And Giuliani,

There's even a new McCain television ad on the air, one that is more purely devoted to drawing a contrast with Hillary Clinton than it is with McCain's service to his nation as a POW.

In the minds of campaigns here, New Hampshire has taken a back seat to Iowa this cycle and candidates rarely spent more than a single day in the state at a time. The press is grumbling, too. So Monday's show of love from the Republicans may sate some appetites for a while.
