  4. Dan LaBerge:

    Still, states like New Hampshire and others tend to see a bump in hotel stays and other areas, according to industry estimates and accounts on the ground. I am sure this is typical of the primary season, but we did see a spike in business and it has stuck around for a little while after, Alexandra Horton, owner of Cafe La Reine in Manchester, New Hampshire, told FoxNews.com. I would say that overall the primary season is good for downtown Manchester and all of the local businesses to gain national exposure, Alexandra Horton said. Dan LaBerge, manager at Billy’s Sports Bar Grillin Manchester, told FoxNews.com they saw between a 5-10 percent increase in business, though businesses in downtown Manchester had a bigger boost.
