WINDHAM — During a whirlwind tour of southern New Hampshire on Saturday, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul didn't mince words when tackling topics such as the national debt, solutions for economic recovery and the looming debt ceiling.
“I'm strongly opposed to raising the debt ceiling,” Paul said during one of his several local appearances Saturday afternoon. “Our problem right now is that our nation's debt has gotten too big. But just making it bigger isn't going to improve things.”
The Texas congressman made stops at area businesses and public venues in Derry, Salem and Windham this weekend, in hopes of drumming up local support for his 2012 presidential bid.
