Obama, Clinton to campaign together in Unity, N.H

Print More

Former Democratic rivals Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton plan to campaign together on Friday in the small New Hampshire town of Unity. It will be their first joint appearance meant to ease tensions over the closely fought Democratic primary.

The Sullivan county location was chosen not only for the symbolism of its name, but because each candidate received exactly 107 votes there in the January 8th primary.

New Hampshire is a critical battleground state in November. Republican John McCain won the state’s primary in his unsuccessful 2000 presidential bid and prevailed again this year.

The rally will be the day after Obama and Clinton meet privately Thursday at a Washington hotel with former Clinton donors. The former first lady will introduce Obama to her financial backers who have been slow to embrace her one-time opponent.
