Bill Clinton Headlines N.H. Democratic Party Dinner

Oct 16, 2014

Former President Bill Clinton is coming back to New Hampshire, the state that helped lead him to the Democratic nomination in 1992, to rally support for the state's Democratic candidates.

Clinton will headline the state Democratic Party's annual dinner in Manchester on Thursday. The Democratic incumbents topping the party's ticket — Gov. Maggie Hassan, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and U.S. Reps. Carol Shea-Porter and Annie Kuster — will also speak. Clinton's wife, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, will campaign with Shaheen and Hassan two days before the Nov. 4 election.

Clinton earned the nickname of "The Comeback Kid" for placing second in the 1992 New Hampshire primary after a third place finish in Iowa. Hillary Clinton won the New Hampshire primary in 2008, also after placing third in Iowa.
