Sanders starts a big week in New Hampshire with State of the Union response

Whilst the result is for now uncertain after the calamitous Iowa caucuses last night, the Sanders campaign will be hitting the ground running in the Granite State as of this morning, with the Senator’s first day headlined by a Manchester event where he will give a response to what will hopefully be President Trump’s final State of the Union. 

Sanders will be looking to capitalise on growing momentum in the state, with the evening kicking off with a Not Me, Us rally with his wife Jane and activist Shaun King.

Tomorrow he will continue to reach out to voters with a town hall in Derry, whilst Friday will see him attend a Politics and Eggs event before the New Hampshire debate that evening, which is sure to be significant as candidates seek to consolidate or even revive their campaigns after Iowa. 

He will finish up a big week with another town hall in Rochester on Saturday afternoon, before a rally in Keene on Sunday night just 36 hours before polls open in New Hampshire.

Sanders picked up a huge win in the state in 2016, picking up 60% of the vote, all 10 counties and 15 of 24 available delegates, and whilst the field is much more wide open than last time around, he’ll be hoping to once again come out on top.
