Over the past two weeks, Hillary made her 10th and 11th trips to the Granite State traveling to Keene, Nashua, Manchester and Portsmouth.
On Friday, July 13, for the first time since she started campaigning here, she was accompanied by President Bill Clinton on their “Ready for Change, Ready to Lead” tour. The Clintons’ were met by thousands of NH voters at every stop – a testament to the wide-spread support Hillary has earned throughout the state and the great work of the New Hampshire for Hillary campaign.
On Tuesday, July 24, Hillary participated in Seacoast Media Group’s forum on energy and the environment. During the event, Hillary reiterated her commitment to working toward energy independence and combating global warming. She also laid out plans for the development of a Green Building Fund.
The NH campaign continues to move full steam ahead, reaching out to voters and preparing for upcoming events like our next “Walk it to Win it Weekend,” July 28-29. Last week we announced the endorsement of education leader Karen McDonough, who led the NH NEA for 16 years. We also announced that environmental policy expert Alice Chamberlin will serve as the Co-chair of Environmental Leaders for Hillary.
