Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign plans to hold more than a dozen open houses across the Granite State in the coming weeks.

Campaign officials say the events will be held in each of the state’s ten counties, where supporters are expected to call on volunteers to help with her campaign.

The dates and locations of the open houses have not yet been disclosed.

The former Secretary of State will not be present.

She held roundtable discussions in Keene and Concord earlier this month.

Hillary Clinton came to Keene to listen to workers at Whitney Brothers children’s furniture plant. But she also offered up a tough assessment of the country’s  small business economy.

“We have stalled out. I was very surprised to see that when I began to dig into it.”

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton makes her first stop in the Granite State Monday since formally announcing she’s running for president.

The former First Lady is in Keene Monday afternoon, where she’ll tour Whitney Brothers, a children’s furniture manufacturer.

And on Tuesday, Clinton will visit New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord, where she’ll hold a roundtable with students and educators.

Hillary Clinton made a surprising move this week. It wasn't running for president — she'd already set the stage for that — but embracing the idea of a constitutional amendment to restrict or eliminate big money in politics.

The notion of amending the Constitution this way has been discussed, literally for decades. But Clinton is joining a new, if small, chorus of prominent politicians who are talking it up.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is set to make her first trip to New Hampshire as a presidential candidate next week.

Officials from the Clinton campaign say she will participate in small events Monday and Tuesday, including roundtables with students, educators and small businesses. She will also speak at private meetings with elected officials and activists around New Hampshire. The campaign did not provide event specifics.

Clinton announced her second White House bid Sunday, kicking it off with a trip to Iowa featuring similar small-scale events.

When the former senator, secretary of state and first lady announced for president on Sunday she smiled into the camera and said, "I'm Hillary Clinton."

Those who were hoping for a return of Hillary's family name, "Rodham," as part of her public identity might have felt some disappointment. For many of her admirers, Hillary Rodham Clinton was the embodiment of aspiration for a woman in public life. This was the woman they wanted to elevate to the White House in her own right.

Hillary Rodham Clinton made no mention of her potential Republican rivals when kicking off her second campaign for president.

They didn't share her restraint.

Rand Paul put Clinton at the center of his first television ad, titled "Liberty, not Hillary."

On Twitter, Scott Walker fired off a series of messages describing Clinton as having a "Washington-knows-best mentality."

Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State under President Obama from 2009 to 2013, after being defeated by Obama for the Democratic party's nomination for President in 2008. First coming to national prominence as the wife of President Bill Clinton, she made history as the first ever First Lady to run for office, winning a U.S. Senate seat representing New York in 2000.

U.S. Department of State

Two prominent staffers in U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s office will be leaving to lead Hillary Clinton’s efforts in New Hampshire as she prepares for her likely 2016 presidential bid.

Mike Vlacich was Shaheen’s 2014 campaign manager and Kari Thurman served as the campaign’s political director.

Vlacich received national attention last fall after defending Shaheen’s seat against well-funded Republican challenger Scott Brown.  

Shaheen, who was in the Granite State this week, tells NHPR she wishes her fellow employees all the best.

The New Hampshire Primary is starting to heat up, with several prominent Republican presidential hopefuls expected in the Granite State this weekend.

NHPR’s Morning Edition producer Michael Brindley sat down with Dante Scala, an associate professor of political science at the University of New Hampshire.

A flood of potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates will be coming through the state this weekend. Can you just run through the list of who we’re going to see?

Breaking her silence, Hillary Rodham Clinton conceded Tuesday that she should have used a government email to conduct business as secretary of state, saying her decision was simply a matter of “convenience.”

“At the time, this didn’t seem like an issue,” Clinton said in her first public comments since it was disclosed last week that she exclusively used her private email for government business and housed her communications on a personal server.

GUEST:

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.

Hillary Clinton's first grandchild has caused the former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate to postpone a Washington, D.C., fundraiser for a New Hampshire lawmaker.

Clinton was scheduled to attend a fundraiser with state Sen. Lou D'Allesandro, a Manchester Democrat, on Tuesday alongside former Massachusetts state Sen. Steve Baddour. Chelsea Clinton gave birth to a daughter, Charlotte, on Friday.

D'Allesandro's office said the fundraiser has not been rescheduled yet.
