Fred Karger has visited New Hampshire more times than any other potential candidate for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, according to the Washington Post. If you haven't his name before, it's probably because Karger isn't your typical Republican presidential candidate. He's openly gay and wants to make gay marriage the law of the land. Needless to say, that puts him at odds with Republicans who want to see New Hampshire's gay marriage law repealed. Maybe why that's why the NH GOP's official online calendar made no mention of Karger's four day visit to the Granite State last month.
During his January 25-28 visit, Fred Karger met with members of the UNH Gay Straight Alliance in Durham, had lunch with the Dartmouth College Republicans in Hanover, and attended Town Hall Meetings in Keene, Manchester, and Portsmouth. That's not all. A full schedule of his latest trip to New Hampshire is available on the website of the Fred Karger Presidential Exploratory Committee.
