Hillary Clinton Campaigns Before New Hampshire Town Hall


On the day of a New Hampshire Democratic Town Hall, Hillary Clinton attended three Get Out the Vote events across the state. Her first event of the day was in Derry where she was introduced by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly. Clinton focused on the issues, but she pointed out that many on her team wanted her to skip New Hampshire since she is trailing in the polls and in Bernie Sanders territory. She said, “I have to tell you. I just could not ever skip New Hampshire. I could not even imagine not being here, not being in settings like these.” A video from the event in Derry is below.

At the remaining two events of the day, one in Dover and one in Manchester, Clinton’s message was similar. She defended herself against comments made by Sanders questioning her progressive values. She pointed to her career and her work with heath care, advocating for women and gay rights, and pushing for stricter gun control measures. She has famously said that she is a “progressive who knows how to get things done.” Today, she said, “We’ve been fighting the progressive fight and getting results for people for years. I hope we keep it on the issues. Because if it’s about our records, hey, I’m going to win by a landslide.” A video from Dover is below, and a video from Manchester will be added when/if available.

Tonight Clinton and Sanders will take part in a CNN Town Hall, similar to the one in Iowa last week. Then, the two Democratic candidates will go head-to-head tomorrow night as both have agreed to a debate which will air on MSNBC. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
