CONCORD – As Hillary Clinton deliveries a much touted official launch speech Saturday in New York City, her presidential campaign will hold watch parties in Manchester and Nashua for supporters of the former secretary of state’s White House bid, NH1 News has learned.
And the campaign is also releasing a new video Thursday that Clinton officials say highlights the presidential candidate on her last trip to New Hampshire connecting with Granite Staters and discussing issues that matter to them.
The campaign launch watch parties will be held at 11am Saturday at 895 Bridge Street in Manchester and 97 Main Street in Nashua. That evening the campaign says Clinton supporters will host “launch day potluck and house parties across the state” to mark what they say is the “next phase of Hillary’s grassroots, people-driven Democratic primary campaign.”
The campaign says people attending these house parties will be able to take part in a livestream of Clinton speaking to a similar house party in Iowa. The house parties will be held at 6pm at 195 Exeter Road in Hampton Falls and 103 Corinthian Dive in Salem, and at 7pm at 26 Wiggin Road in Bedford, 81 Village Street in Concord, and 8 Salisbury Road in Keene
Clinton announced her second White House bid in mid-April. Since then she’s made two visits to the first –in-the-nation primary state, holding small business roundtables and gatherings at private homes with invited guests and some members of the public. In her second trip, she also made a quick stop at an ice cream stand in Derry.
Monday Clinton returns to New Hampshire for her third visit. Clinton will hold a “Launch Party with Hilary” in Concord at a venue and time to be announced. The event is open to members of the public who RSVP and register on the Clinton website. News of the event was first reported by veteran Granite State political reporter John DiStaso. Monday evening Clinton will headline a Manchester Democratic City Committee Flag Day dinner at the Puritan Backroom Conference Center, which was first reported on social media by NH1 News. At least one other stop is planned.
While Clinton delivers her launch speech on Saturday, two other Democratic presidential candidates will be out on the campaign trail. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley will be in the Granite State , holding events in Portsmouth, New Castle, Dover and Manchester. And Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont will be campaigning in Iowa, which holds the first caucus in the race for the White House.
