McCain forming veterans group in New Hampshire
From CNN Ticker Producer Alex Mooney

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, is forming a committee of New Hampshire veterans to advise him on key issues in the upcoming midterm elections.

The Granite state veterans, including Griff Dalianis, who headed up then-Governor Bush's New Hampshire veterans committee in 2000, and Paul Chevalier, who headed up McCain's veterans committees in 2000, are joining the McCain camp ahead of another potential presidential run in 2008.

"I am proud to be working with these fine men and women who have served our country with honor and distinction," McCain said in a statement. "I deeply appreciate the advice and support they provide to our cause of electing quality Republican candidates up and down the ballot throughout New Hampshire."

The Arizona Senator has been hard at work in adding key GOP supporters from crucial presidential primary states to his Straight Talk America political action committee as he mulls his political future.
