Police say a suspicious letter sent to John McCain's campaign office in Manchester, New Hampshire was from someone asking him to consider former New York Governor George Pataki as his running mate.

The office was evacuated Thursday after it received a letter to McCain sent from Denver. Staffers became suspicious because a threatening letter containing an unidentified white powder was sent to McCain's Denver office earlier in the day.

Authorities say the New Hampshire letter was a false alarm and contained information about the support McCain would receive from Polish-American voters if he chose Pataki as his running mate.

Officials believe the Denver letter was a hoax by an inmate and that the powder was not hazardous.
