“The fact that he didn’t talk about his campaign I thought was very touching to me,” newly promoted Greenland, NH Police Chief Tara Laurent told ABC News, describing her unexpectedly emotional response to Mitt Romney’s “secret trip” — reporters had not been notified — to the town’s police department yesterday. The Republican presidential candidate had come to offer his condolences for the loss of veteran Police Chief Michael Maloney, killed three weeks ago while serving an arrest warrant:
“Everyone here is in the grieving process, and anyone who is willing to come in and acknowledge that and make the officers and everyone feel good is welcome …
It seemed genuine, he wasn’t here to tell us to vote for him.”
