Dal LaMagna drops anti-war campaign for president

Posted by David Postman

The Concord Monitor in Dal LaMagna's latest adopted home of New Hampshire has the story.

"I tell my friends I'm cured," he said by phone last week. LaMagna had made New Hampshire the focus of his campaign, renting space in downtown Concord.

But as a little-known candidate, LaMagna found the campaign trail tough going. He wasn't allowed to hold his sign or distribute literature at several fairs, he said; when he asked to speak to church groups about Iraq, they said they couldn't host political candidates. "I just didn't think I could meet enough people to have New Hampshire be my launching pad," he said. Even a stunt at a Bill and Hillary Clinton rally in Concord -- he hired a horse to advertise his "dark horse" candidacy - didn't win much attention.
