Obama takes campaign to New Hampshire
Chicago – It's off to New Hampshire for U.S. Senator Barack Obama after a busy weekend campaigning for president in Illinois and Iowa.
Obama has scheduled appearances in New Hampshire, another important stop because that state traditionally hosts the country's first primary.
Obama has been on the road since announcing Saturday in Springfield that he's running for president.
Sunday night, more than 7,000 people welcomed him home to Chicago with a rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago arena.
He and his wife later attended a downtown fundraiser.
Obama's events on this first weekend as a presidential candidate have drawn thousands of people.
