From the Concord Monitor

Shira Schoenberg profiles Grant's superior grassroots campaign in this morning's Concord Monitor:

Reaching voters

One recent day, Bosse had a typically busy schedule: A 9 a.m. website post on his newest proposal to cut federal spending, a workout at the gym, followed by door-to-door campaigning from 10 a.m. to noon. During a lunch break, Bosse typed e-mails and a blog post and chatted with a journalist. Then, more door-to-door campaigning and a radio interview done while sitting in a car in the Boys and Girls Club parking lot before taking a tour there. A short break before driving to Manchester to throw the first pitch at a New Hampshire Fisher Cats game.

That day, Bosse knocked on 65 doors, greeting voters with a smile and a flier, asking them to call him with questions. Occasionally, he chatted about health care or energy.
