Presidential hopeful Rick Perry got his first brush with New Hampshire protesters.
 
Democratic protesters waved signs and chanted "Go Back To Texas" outside Popovers Bakery & Café on Thursday morning as the newcomer to the Republican presidential field tried to meet voters.

  It was the first stop on Perry's third day in New Hampshire since the governor launched his campaign Saturday.
 
He ignored the protest and briefly walked through the coffee shop, shaking hands. The chanting and large media contingent following made for a chaotic atmosphere.
 
Perry didn't make any formal remarks or answer questions about details of his policies.
 
Former Democratic State Sen. Burt Cohen was among those shouting. He calls Perry a threat to America.
