New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen Discusses Clinton Campaign
It’s less than a month until the first votes will be cast in the presidential primary campaign, with the early contests in Iowa and New Hampshire. New Hampshire U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen is a staunch supporter of Hilary Clinton’s bid. In September, she endorsed the former Senator and Secretary of State. Clinton won in New Hampshire in 2008, but Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is right next door and popular in the state. Shaheen is one of the Clinton campaign’s most stalwart spokespeople. With the polls tightening in Iowa and New Hampshire, Senator Shaheen discussed the race with WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley.
According to a Des Moines Register/Bloomberg poll released Thursday, Clinton leads Senator Bernie Sanders in Iowa 42 to 40 percent. A Monmouth University poll released Tuesday shows Sanders leading Clinton there 53 to 39 percent.
