Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) will headline the New Hampshire Republican State Committee's 160th anniversary celebration next month, the committee announced Friday.

Coburn will be in Manchester on Nov. 8 for the event. New Hampshire GOP Jennifer Horn called him "a strong Republican leader who has stood up for taxpayers by fighting to eliminate wasteful government spending."

Most times pols travel to one of the early presidential nominating states, it's worth taking notice, because such trips don't happen by accident. But Coburn, a physician and senator who has built a reputation on fiscal conservatism, has given no indication that he has any interest in running.
