DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is in New Hampshire — one of the eight so-called battleground states in the presidential race — to campaign for Mitt Romney.

The Kentucky Republican on Saturday afternoon heads to the University of New Hampshire in Durham to speak at a rally with Young Americans for Mitt.

Rand’s expected to discuss the need to get the nation’s fiscal house in order and to promote pro-growth policies for the economy.
