CONCORD – Hillary Clinton’s taking her show outdoors.

The Democratic presidential nominee’s rally Monday afternoon at St. Anselm College will now be held outside, in the school’s Alumni Hall, or upper, courtyard. With a cool but clear autumn day expected, and Clinton bringing along one of the biggest political rock stars on the left, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, the campaign moved outside an event that was originally going to be held inside at the Carr Center.

This will be just the second visit to New Hampshire for Clinton since formally accepting her party’s nomination at the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia in late-July. She teamed up Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at an event at the University of New Hampshire in Durham late last month.

Sanders defeated Clinton by 22 percentage points in the state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary in early February, launching the one time longshot for the nomination into a marathon battle against Clinton. In early July, after the end of the primary season, Sanders endorsed Clinton at a unity rally held at the high school in Portsmouth.

The two polls released last week in the Granite State, a battleground state in presidential election, put Clinton up 15 percentage points (UNH for WMUR) and 8 points (Emerson College) over Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. That’s a larger advantage for Clinton compared to the two previous polls, when Clinton was up 3 points (MassINC for WBUR) and 6 points (UMass Lowell for News7).

Trump’s been a much more frequent visitor to New Hampshire, making six stops in the state since formally accepting the GOP nomination in mid-July in Cleveland.

Two of the biggest names in the Democratic Party, Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton, separately held rallies for Clinton last week. Trump’s running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, campaigned in New Hampshire on Friday.
