NATIONAL CAMPAIGN CO-CHAIR, FMR. IOWA GOVERNOR TOM VILSACK AND CHRISTIE VILSACK TO CAMPAIGN FOR HILLARY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

Pair to Criss Cross State for Hillary

MANCHESTER, NH – Iowa’s beloved former Governor and Hillary for President National Co-chair Tom Vilsack and Iowa campaign Co-chair First Lady Christie Vilsack will travel to New Hampshire tomorrow and Thursday to campaign on behalf of Senator Hillary Clinton. Governor Vilsack will participate in events in Plymouth on Wednesday and Christie will join him for events in Epping, Portsmouth and Dover on Thursday. Christie will also host a NH Women for Hillary meeting at the NH for Hillary headquarters and meet with American Federation of Teachers New Hampshire leaders in Manchester on Wednesday.

The Vilsacks endorsed Senator Clinton in Iowa on March 26 and have been traveling throughout Iowa and the country to discuss her leadership and experience that make her best prepared to lead this country.

“At this critical time, Hillary Clinton has the experience, strength and vision our country needs to get us back on track and moving in the right direction,” Governor Vilsack said at the time.  “There is no candidate who will create a stronger and better America than Hillary Clinton.” 

“Hillary shares our commitment to health care, education and ending the war in Iraq,” added Christie Vilsack.  “She has a sensible and realistic plan of action for America and the know-how to get things done in Washington.”

Vilsack served two terms as Iowa governor and was first elected in 1998.  He honored a self-imposed term-limit pledge and did not seek reelection in 2006.  His leadership led to the creation of 30,000 new jobs, expansion of insurance coverage to more than 90,000 Iowa children and made Iowa a leader in renewable energy.
