Bernie Sanders, the polling leader in the state, continued his series of big-draw events Monday night by holding a combined concert and rally with The Strokes and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Durham. It’s part of a big buildup to Tuesday’s primary night, with the top Democratic presidential candidates drawing larger and larger crowds throughout the state over the weekend leading into the final day of campaigning, which saw the candidates and their highest-profile surrogates hold dozens of events around New Hampshire on Monday.
Sanders and his supporters hope they are building toward another signature moment for his campaign, four years after New Hampshire gave Sanders his first primary win of 2016 — and a week after the confusing, muddled vote count in Iowa left the Vermont senator’s campaign frustrated.
But the polling that shows Sanders ahead also shows there are no guarantees: Pete Buttigieg has been rising fast behind him after their neck-and-neck race in Iowa, leaving Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden further back in the latest surveys. Amy Klobuchar, meanwhile, has seen a fundraising boost and higher support in some polls since Friday’s debate at Saint Anselm College.
Here’s everything you need to know about Monday’s strategy, where the campaigns are/were and what they have been doing. Our reporters have fanned out across the state following all the top campaigns — so check back throughout the day as we update this story with key moments and new developments on the campaign trail….
