Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is heading to neighboring New Hampshire this weekend — her second early presidential state visit since a 2020 exploratory bid on New Year’s Eve.
Warren is scheduled to make a stop at a private event in Concord on Friday and on Saturday will hold an organizing event in Manchester that will be public.
The senator’s visit to the first-in-the-nation primary state — her first as a presidential contender — comes after she skipped New Hampshire during the midterm elections, instead focusing on her own reelection campaign to the Senate. Last weekend, Warren held at-capacity organizing events across Iowa — complete with lengthy lines that stretched for blocks — as Democrats in the first caucus state expressed readiness to get the 2020 campaign underway.
Warren is the highest profile potential 2020 contender to date to have filed an exploratory bid for president, allowing her to ramp up fundraising and make critical staffing decisions in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Her early Iowa tour enabled Warren to deliver an economic-centered message and weave a personal narrative about a hardscrabble Oklahoma upbringing, without competing for attention with other top-tier competitors.
