CONCORD – Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence is returning to New Hampshire on Friday.
NH1 News was first to report on Tuesday evening that the Indiana governor will make his third trip to the Granite State since GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump named him as his running mate in July.
Pence is expected to hold an event in Nashua before headlining another gathering later in the day at the historic town hall in Exeter.
Late last month Pence was the main attraction at a rally at the town hall in Milford. On August 18, he headlined an event the Executive Court in Manchester and also spoke one-on-one with NH1 News.
Trump was last in New Hampshire this past Saturday, when he held a large outdoor rally at Toyota of Portsmouth along Route One. It was Trump’s sixth stop the Granite State since formally winning the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July.
Clinton back in NH on Monday
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will return to New Hampshire next Monday October 24, for her second visit to the state since the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in late July. Clinton’s campaign told NH1 News that the former U.S. secretary of state will be joined on next week’s trip by Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. Warren is extremely popular and influential with the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.
Clinton was last in New Hampshire late last month, when she teamed up at an event at the University of New Hampshire in Durham with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, her fierce rival from the Democratic primaries.
Thursday Vice President Joe Biden campaigns in New Hampshire for the first time this election cycle. The vice president will headline a Clinton rally in Nashua.
Monday, former President Bill Clinton was the main attraction at rallies for his wife in Hanover and Nashua.
