New Hampshire U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen is set to endorse Hillary Clinton for president.

Shaheen will make the announcement at the New Hampshire Women for Hillary kick-off event in Portsmouth on Saturday, where she’ll be joined by the former Democratic Secretary of State.

In an email to supporters, Shaheen described Clinton as a president who would stand up to help Granite Staters get ahead and stay ahead.

At Saturday’s event in Portsmouth, Clinton plans to discuss challenges women still face across the globe.

Donald Trump is spending another week at the top of the GOP polls. Yesterday at an event in South Carolina, he defended his tone, his immigration plan and his hair as real and not a toupee.

Hillary Clinton said this week that she “gets it” that people are concerned about investigations into her use of a private email server as Secretary of State, and she compared Republican attitudes towards women to those of Islamic terrorists.

In this year’s Democratic primary, several candidates have made action on climate change a major part of their campaign. This time around they think it could be a winning issue for them in the general election, and they’re also more comfortable using it to draw distinctions between each other.
