Republican Vice Presidential Nominee Mike Pence is campaigning in Manchester, New Hampshire Thursday. The Trump campaign appears to have some ground to make up in the Granite State: a CBS News/YouGov poll last week put the Trump/Pence ticket nine points behind Democrats Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine. Many in New Hampshire are looking further down the ticket to see what effect the presidential race might have on a very tight senate race between Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte, and Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan.
