Clintons Campaign on Eve of NH Primary


On the eve of the New Hampshire primary, Hillary, Bill, and Chelsea Clinton attended events across the state drumming up last minute support. Bill attended a Get Out the Vote event in Rochester. During the event, Bill went after Bernie Sanders and criticized his tactics saying, “You can’t have a debate with somebody if every time you raise the question, ‘Oh, you’re part of the establishment, you’re attacking me.’ All we need is a conversation about what policies are best and who has the best chance of enacting them and I trust the voters.”

All three Clintons attended events in Manchester and Hudson. During her speeches, Hillary defended her record, specifically her ties to Wall Street. She pointed out that Sanders has been the recipient of Wall Street money as well. She said, “You know, Senator Sanders took about $200,000 from Wall Street firms, not directly, but through the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. There nothing wrong with that. It hasn’t changed his view. It hasn’t changed my view or my vote either.” Videos from today’s events will be posted when/if available.

While Clinton is trailing in the Democratic primary polls, the weather is going to be snowy and cold, which could affect turnout. The Clinton campaign has seized on the opportunity to offer rides to the polls. Today she said, “I think Granite Staters are pretty hardy. Obviously, if roads are slick, people will have to be careful. I hope that we’ll be able to help. Anybody who needs a ride to the polls, call my campaign. We’ll be happy to get you there. We’ve got a great organization ready to turn out as many voters as possible.”

Results from the primary will be posted tomorrow night. For all the latest, follow our revamped Scheduled Events page and follow Clinton on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
