Dem candidates spend holiday in New Hampshire, Iowa
Several Democratic presidential candidates are closing out the long holiday weekend on the campaign trail, with stops planned across states key to securing their party’s nomination.
On Presidents Day, much of the campaign trail spotlight moved to New Hampshire, home to the first presidential primary. Three candidates, Sens. Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, planned to campaign in the state.
The three senators are crisscrossing the state, making their first trips to it since launching their 2020 presidential bids.
Booker has been in the state for a few days and will wrap up his trip with a house party in Nashua. House parties are a staple of campaigning in the state.
Harris planned an afternoon town hall in Portsmouth and will participate in the Politics & Eggs breakfast on Tuesday.
Klobuchar will hold a meet-and-greet in Goffstown on Monday before a CNN town hall.
Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York was back in Iowa, the leadoff caucus state, with plans to meet voters in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.
Former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland, who also is running for president, was campaigning in Iowa as well.
