Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will visit New Hampshire on Wednesday, appearing with US Senator Bernie Sanders for the first time in the state since he endorsed her this summer. Clinton’s former rival officially endorsed her at a rally together in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in July.
On Wednesday, Clinton will speak at the University of New Hampshire in Durham to discuss college affordability, which was a key issue for Sanders. Clinton updated her platform to include tuition-free enrollment in public, in-state colleges for certain families.
“That includes enabling all students with family income up to $125,000 to attend an in-state public college or university tuition-free, covering more than 80 percent of all families,” the campaign said in a release.
Clinton’s campaign released a statement that said she and Sanders will “discuss their shared belief that cost should not be a barrier for anyone who chooses to go to college, and student debt should not hold Americans back after they leave school.”
Clinton is seeking the support of younger voters, as recent polls show her losing support among millennials nationally. However, the former secretary of state leads Republican nominee Donald Trump within the demographic.
The “New College Compact Event” is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. Wednesday with the doors opening at 12:15 p.m. The event can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via RBC Broadcasting.
