About 700 people showed up at the "Tar Heel Tea Party," some wearing tea bags attached to their lapel buttons. The event was organized by talk radio hosts in several cities across the state along with the conservative groups that included the John Locke Foundation and Citizens for a Sound Economy.

BY Carol Byrne Hall

Organizers are calling it the Tar Heel Tea Party, and they hope that people who don't want their taxes increased will turn out en masse for a rally today on Halifax Mall behind the Legislative Building. "At some point, you have to say, 'OK, that's enough,' " said Jerry Agar, the WPTF radio talk show host who has been promoting the rally. "I was encouraging people to send e-mails to their legislators, and people were calling, some last Tuesday but mostly Wednesday, saying we should do more. So that's how the idea for the rally got started."

NH: Normand May Join Democratic Primary

The Manchester Union Leader (7/29, DiStaso) reported, "On your scorecard of possible candidates for governor in 2002, pencil in a third Democrat." Manchester attorney James Normand, a "former state executive councilor, confirmed yesterday that he is 'looking very seriously' at running for governor next year in case Gov. Jeanne Shaheen decides not to seek a fourth term. He joins state Sens. Beverly Hollingworth of Hampton and Mark Fernald of Sharon on the current Democratic list of those actively eyeing the corner office." Republicans Gordon Humphrey, Craig Benson and Bruce Keough "are moving quickly toward candidacies." Keough "yesterday announced that New Hampshire Citizens for a Sound Economy's Rich Killion has been named executive director of his exploratory committee."
