    NH Voters Discuss Possible Warren White House Run

    With Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts considering a presidential campaign, New Hampshire voters are considering her candidacy.

    (Published Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019)

    Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren is hosting an organizing event in New Hampshire for her 2020 presidential exploratory committee this weekend.

    The event is scheduled Saturday afternoon at Manchester Community College. She is also scheduled to attend a house party in Concord. This will be her first trip to the state since she announced that she is exploring a run for president in 2020.

    New Hampshire's Democratic Party also announced Wednesday that Warren will be the keynote speaker at its McIntyre-Shaheen 100 Club Dinner on Feb. 22 in Manchester.

    "Massachusetts US Senator Elizabeth Warren has spent her career taking on powerful special interests," a website advertising the event says. "As she travels the country this year, NH Democrats look forward to welcoming her to the Granite State."

    The news of Warren's New Hampshire visit comes after she spent last weekend in Iowa in the wake of her announcement that she had formed a presidential exploratory committee.

    NBC10 Boston spoke with New Hampshire voters this week to get their thoughts on a potential Warren candidacy.

    Ed Steenbeke of Laconia said he likes what Warren believes in and that she's a people person.

    Kathy Drown of Webster says she loves the way Warren stands up to the establishment.

    But she is not sold yet.

    "I just want to learn more about her," she said.

    [NATL] ‘Parkland Speaks’: School Shooting Survivors Turn Grief Into Activism

    Survivors of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have turned to music, poetry, art and activism as they try to cope with the grief of losing 17 students and teachers on Feb 14, 2018.

    Political analyst Scott Spradling told NBC10 Boston that Democrats are not yet exactly sure what they are looking for in a candidate.

    "They definitely want someone with a little bit of that fight to go up against Donald Trump," Spradling said. "I think they're also looking for someone who is calm. Who's not going to lose his or her temper."

    "What sounds exciting in January 2019 may actually be stale and not appropriate in January 2020," added Democratic activist and New Hampshire radio host Arnie Arnesen.

    Arnesen said Warren's stock as a candidate will rise if the economy takes a downturn in the months leading up to the New Hampshire primary, playing into Warren's expertise.

    One thing most New Hampshire Democrats say they agree on is that there are many more candidates they want to get to know and experience, in person, before they make any final decisions about 2020.
