WMUR 9 here in NH – Committment 2010

For those outside of NH, WMUR is pretty much the ONLY TV over-the-air broadcast station of note, so it gets watched.  They have their version of the obligatory political series that all stations run during this election season; they call theirs Committment 2010.
