I saw this press release from Mitt Romney’s campaign. I asked Patrick Hynes, who is the blog-outreach guy for John McCain, what he thought of it. His first response was to tell a joke:

First, I think that John Lynch has higher favorability among New Hampshire Republicans than Mitt Romney.

But then, more seriously:

Second, it is a tribute to the New Hampshire primary process that a sitting Democratic Governor would attend a townhall for a Republican candidate for President. Governor Lynch’s visit demonstrates the decency and respect that New Hampshire voters expect in their politicians. To draw a parallel between Senator McCain’s and Governor Lynch’s mutual respect and Governor Romney’s prolonged and repeated support for liberal Democrats, like Dick Swett and Rocky Anderson, over conservative Republicans, is the kind of intellectual corner-cutting that we have come to expect from the Romney campaign.
