Democrat Hillary Clinton has been a presidential candidate since April, but she held what was billed as a campaign kickoff rally this weekend in New York City. Now she’s holding launch parties in early voting states – she was in Iowa Sunday, and Monday she’s holding a forum on early childhood education in Rochester before rallying supporters at Carter Hill Orchard in Concord.
Speaking of kickoffs, former Florida governor Jeb Bush is expected to formally launch his White House bid Monday afternoon in Florida. Then, like Clinton, he heads to the early states, including a town hall meeting in Derry, New Hampshire on Tuesday.
Donald Trump is set to return to Manchester on Wednesday, after announcing his 2016 plans at Trump Tower in New York City. And New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a town hall meeting Thursday in Hampton.
