Kamal Harris, Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Cory Booker, and Beto O’Rourke all had delegations of supporters marching. Bernie had key supporters Ben and Jerry there with their Bernie Cooper and to put on ice cream socials around the state this weekend.

I have just returned from three weeks in South Africa on safari and bicycling. As I often do, I took many, many images; it’s going to take me a bit to edit and post them, plus some of my travel mates are going share some of their images here, too. So, come back soon to see a beautiful country.
Senator Bernie Sander’s new book “Our Revolution” has hit the book stores. Reviewing his early years, his campaign for president and the future of the movement he started, the book should be a best seller. I am pleased to be a part of this book. My photo of Bernie’s son, Levi, introducing his dad at a rally in Claremont, NH is in the book!
October 24 in Manchester, NH began with an idyllic fall day of sun, crisp air and bountiful colors in the trees. Thousands converged on St Anselm College to hear Elizabeth Warren fire up the crowd in anticipation of Hillary Clinton’s talk to her supporters.

Former President Bill Clinton visited the campus of Keene State College in Keene, NH today along with Governor Maggie Hassan (candidate for U.S. Senate) and Congresswoman Annie Kuster. Whilst giving the case for electing Hillary Clinton as president, a Trump heckler started making a fuss. Those near the disruption started to boo the heckler but not breaking stride with his talk, President Clinton said: “be nice to him, they have had a tough week” to the cheers of the crowd. Bill had the crowd well in hand for his whole talk. After, he walked the line to greet and take selfies with the crowd. My friend, State Rep Jon Manley and I had the good fortune to bump into Annie Kuster at Panera after the rally and chat for a few minutes.
