"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." Normand is "viewed as a moderate who would could give Democratic primary voters an alternative to two more liberal income tax advocates."
