    The Republican presidential nominee spoke in Laconia, NH, Thursday night (Published Thursday, Sept. 15, 2016)

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine both visited New Hampshire Thursday.

    Trump's visit to the Granite State came on the same day that the conservative Union Leader chose to endorse Libertarian Gary Johnson for president, the first time in 100 years the newspaper has not endorsed a Republican.

    Trump, speaking at Laconia Middle School, however did not address the endorsement and remained on good behavior.

    Kaine campaigned in Portsmouth and Exeter on Thursday.

    In Portsmouth, he met with leaders for Stay Work Play, a nonprofit group that encourages young workers to stay in the state.

    Addressing a Democratic organizing event in Exeter, Kaine referred to Trump's 2015 book "Crippled America," which criticizes the direction of the country under Democratic leadership.

    He described Trump as out-of-touch, saying the billionaire businessman's philosophy is "a view out of the penthouse of a tall tower." He continued: "I do not recognize this picture of our country. This is not who we are."

    Kaine is also scheduled to attend a private fundraising event in Maine later on Thursday.
