MANCHESTER, NH - The New Hampshire for Hillary campaign today announced that former House Democratic Leader Dick Gephardt will visit the Granite State tomorrow, January 4th, to talk with working families who are caught in the current middle class squeeze. Congressman Gephardt, who represented Missouri's Third District for 28 years, will make stops in support of Senator Clinton's plan to restore the middle class in Claremont, Manchester and Milford.
Dick Gephardt was born in St. Louis, Missouri where his father worked as a milkman. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1977, and served in a variety of leadership positions including Majority Leader, Minority Leader and Democratic Leader. In 1988 and 2003, Dick Gephardt was a Democratic candidate in the race for the presidency. He is well known for his outspoken support of American families.
Senator Clinton has a plan to restore America's middle class. After six and a half years of Bush administration policies, the middle class is struggling to succeed in an economy that is leaving more and more Americans behind. As president, Hillary will lower taxes for middle class families. She will provide quality, affordable health care to every American. Making college accessible and affordable is another important component of her comprehensive plan to restore opportunity for all Americans.
