“She is looking forward to returning to the Dartmouth campus next week and discussing how together we can build an economy where families can get ahead and stay ahead,” says Mike Vlacich, Clinton’s New Hampshire state director.
Clinton’s appearance at the “America’s Economic Future” event, at Spaulding Auditorium in the Hopkins Center for the Arts, will begin with an introduction by former New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch, a senior lecturer at the Tuck School, followed by remarks and a town-hall-style question-and-answer period. The doors will open at 2:45 p.m. Overflow space will be in Alumni Hall at the Hopkins Center.
Former Sen. Clinton comes to Dartmouth a day after she will officially file as a presidential primary candidate at the New Hampshire secretary of state’s office in Concord. It will be her second stop at the College during the 2016 New Hampshire primary campaign.
The “America’s Economic Future” series, sponsored by Tuck’s Center for Global Business and Government, and the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy and the Social Sciences, has also hosted Republican presidential hopefuls Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who spoke at an event Wednesday, and former New York Gov. George Pataki, who appeared at Dartmouth on Oct. 5.
Hanover and the College have for decades been campaign stops for presidential candidates of both parties as they make their way through the state in the run-up to the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary. The 2016 primary is set for Feb. 9.
Former Maryland governor and Democratic candidate Martin O’Malley has made two campaign stops on campus, most recently on Oct. 16. Republican John Kasich, governor of Ohio, appeared at a campus taping of the cable news show Morning Joe on Oct. 22. His appearance was the first of an anticipated series of Morning Joe candidate conversations to be held at the College.
