Sanders returns to NH for rallies in Nashua, Keene to campaign for Clinton
CONCORD -- Sen. Bernie Sanders returns to New Hampshire on Friday to campaign in Keene and Nashua for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The senator from Vermont's expected to highlight Clinton's plans "to build an economy that works for everyone," while adding that GOP nominee "Donald Trump's plan would be to benefit himself and other millionaires and billionaires," according to Democratic Party officials.
Sander is expected to tout his signature issues, among them raising the minimum wage to a living wage, combating climate change and the importance of sustainability, how to make public college and universities tuition-free, and how to end what he terms a broken criminal justice system.
The first event is scheduled to take place at Keene State College in the Redfern Arts Center Main Theater at 2 p.m., doors opening at 1 p.m. The second event will take place at the Nashua Community College at 505 Amherst Street at 5 p.m., doors opening at 4 p.m.
This is Sander's second visit to the crucial battleground state of New Hampshire in the past ten days.
Early last week Sanders teamed up with Clinton, who edged him out in the battle for the Democratic nomination, at an event on college affordability at UNH in Durham.
