CONWAY — Since 2006, the traditional signing of The Conway Daily Sun's Ice Box One refrigerator-freezer has gotten a warm reception from leading presidential hopefuls.
Every four years, as New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation presidential primary nears, candidates from both parties come into the newsroom for their editorial board interviews with the Sun's editors and reporters.
It's always a great exchange of ideas, and enables the staff to get up close and personal with the candidates, to experience their presidential timber firsthand and to share those exchanges with readers of the Sun.
It's a responsibility we take seriously. There are always light moments, of course, where the conversation turns to such topics as the candidates' taste in music, questions about sports teams and what they have enjoyed the most during their visits to the Granite State.
This primary season, the Sun has hosted separate editorial boards with 10 candidates — seven Republicans, and three Democrats.
