Pete Buttigieg spoke at a Veterans Day event in Rochester, New Hampshire where he paid tribute to those who have served in Americas armed forces and vowing to name a woman to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs if he were elected President. Buttigieg also criticized Donald Trump over how he has failed to stem the growing crisis of military service members committing suicide and turning an apparent blind eye to military women being sexually assaulted in the military.
Joe Biden held a rally outside of the New Hampshire State House after filing candidacy paperwork for the first-in-the-nation primary in early 2020. Biden spoke about his campaign and reiterated to his supporters why he thinks he is the best candidate to take on Donald Trump in the 2020 Presidential election. Biden was joined on stage with his wife, Jill Biden, and John Lynch, the former Democratic governor of New Hampshire.
Joe Biden officially called for President Donald Trump's impeachment for the first time, saying that Trump "is shooting holes in our Constitution and we cannot allow him to get away with it.” Biden, unlike many of his Democratic competitors in the 2020 Primary, had long refused to comment on calling for Trump to be removed from office, but decided that the time has come for Trump to be removed due to the widening Ukraine scandal where he used he pressured that country's President to investigate Joe Biden in exchange for the release of desperately needed military aid.
Pete Buttigieg delivered a speech at the 2019 New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention where he implored the audience to take a chance with a candidate that isn't "safe," saying “[e]very time we’ve tried to play it safe with established and Washington-tenured figures, every single time we’ve come up short” in a veiled criticism of Joe Biden's candidacy. The crowd largely welcomed Buttigieg's speech, giving him multiple standing ovations as he spoke.
Elizabeth Warren delivered a speech at the 2019 New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention where she touched on the major themes of her campaign in front of a welcoming audience. A large number of political commentators agreed that Warren stood out the most of all the candidates who spoke at the convention, garnering the most raucous applause's from the crowd.
Joe Biden delivered a speech at the 2019 New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention where he spoke in front of the energetic audience and stuck to the usual themes of his campaign, but notably had a Freudian slip when he accidentally referred to Donald Trump as Donald "Hump." Biden quickly corrected himself and laughed off his slip of the tongue.
Bernie Sanders hosted a town hall and ice cream social at Nashua Community College in Nashua, New Hampshire. Sanders took questions from the audience and stuck with his bread and butter issues of expanding social services for the entire country and making the tax system more fair for the common person.
Bernie Sanders participated in a town hall in Claremont, New Hampshire where he discussed his plans to pass universal health care, cancel student debt, and raise the minimum wage to a living wage. Sanders angrily asked how "[H]ow in God's name does anybody live on seven and a quarter, or eight, or nine, or 10 bucks an hour, can't be done." He also dared Senate Leader Mitch McConnell to put his legislation requiring a $15 minimum wage on the Senate floor, predicting it would overwhelmingly pass if he did.
