N.Y. Gov. George Pataki became the first potential presidential hopeful to open an office in New Hampshire on Monday, though he insisted his sites aren't set any further than the election five weeks away.
"This is about '06," he said. "It really is."
The office will be headquarters for Pataki's political action committee, the 21st Century Freedom PAC, and will offer space and resources for Republicans seeking state and federal office from New Hampshire.
It may be about 2006, but even he must admit that he's looking towards 2008.
