The Clinton New Hampshire campaign announced that Assistant House Majority Leader Bette Lasky of Nashua is supporting Senator Clinton's presidential bid. This, despite the fact that Lasky previously hosted a house party for Barack Obama. The press release quoted Clinton saying “I am both overwhelmed and humbled by the incredible support I am receiving in New Hampshire. I am looking forward to returning to New Hampshire and working with Bette to bring the positive message of my campaign to living rooms and town halls all across the Granite State.”
The Nashua State Representative argued that "There are a great number of qualified people in this race, but Senator Clinton’s experience, vision and passion make her the right candidate to be the next President of the United States."
