Hillary Clinton spoke at Manchester Community College Monday. She noted the location was similar to that of the recent mass shooting in Oregon that left nine people dead. Clinton told the crowd the nation needs to stop greeting such events with what she termed a shrug.

“It’s time for us to say, 'Wait a minute, we are better than this. Our country is better than this, and there are steps we can take.' "

Clinton is proposing that any person engaging in "a high volume of gun sales," over the internet or at gun shows, perform background checks like seller at gun stores.

The Hillary Clinton campaign has been doing it for weeks, rolling out the names of prominent local backers. Sometimes the names are big, such as Gov. Maggie Hassan. Other times, they are smaller, like Wednesday's endorser, former Executive Councilor Debora Pignatelli.

Either way, the Clinton campaign keeps them coming. But the same thing can’t be said for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who counts no current office holders among his Granite State backers. The question is: Does that matter in this election?

New Hampshire Democrats gathered Saturday in Manchester for their state party convention. With five of the party’s six presidential hopefuls as featured speakers, Democrats are far from settled on who their nominee will be. But the party faithful appear happy with how their nominating process is playing out.

In a full - but not exactly packed - gymnasium at the Concord Boys and Girls Club Thursday evening, Clinton touted a long list of local endorsements, including Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Governor Maggie Hassan, before digging into a wide range of topics. Questions from an engaged audience touched on everything from the Iranian Nuclear Deal to how Clinton would define the word “equality.”

In her answers to questions on climate change and college affordability, the candidate took pains to stress how these topics were missing from the previous night’s Republican Presidential debate.

Hillary Clinton hosted a community forum in Laconia Thursday, where she sat beside local leaders actively involved in the fight against opioid addiction.

Clinton applauded Laconia for its work in this battle, telling a crowd at the city's Boys and Girls Club that the fight against addiction needs to start at the community level.

Hillary Clinton's private server is currently in the possession of the FBI. And while it has been reported that the server was "wiped," what actually happened remains unclear. But not because the term is so hard to understand from a technical standpoint. In fact, wiping is a straightforward process. It's very different from hitting the delete button. And if it happened, experts say, it'll hamper the FBI investigation.

When an event is billed as a  “Women for Hillary” rally, it’s not surprising candidate Hillary Clinton and Senator Jeanne Shaheen were more or less preaching to the choir.

Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean is back on the presidential campaign trail in New Hampshire, but this time not as a candidate. Dean, who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004, is now working to get Hillary Clinton in the White House.

States would receive four dollars in federal money for every dollar they invest in substance abuse prevention and treatment under a plan announced today by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The plan, outlined in a conference call with reporters, would direct $10 billion in new federal funds to drug and alcohol addiction programs over 10 years.

The State Department released some 7,000 pages of Hillary Clinton's emails Monday from her time as secretary of state. This batch is the latest in a series of monthly, court-ordered releases that started in May. This is the largest batch so far.

An early scan reveals little new information — a lot of logistics planning, tech issues and news articles sent around. One email appears to suggest some confusion at the State Department help desk about Clinton's actual email address.

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.
