In the lead-up to the first presidential debate on June 27 and July 4, the Biden-Harris campaign in New Hampshire is launching an extensive mobilization effort with over 110 events across the state across the next two weeks. These include debate watch parties, door-knocking canvass launches, community gatherings, and a major reproductive rights mobilization event.

Meanwhile the NH GOP is set to have just one debate watch party in Manchester.

Democrats’ events will kick off on Monday, June 24, at 6 pm with a Reproductive Freedoms Mobilization Event in Concord with actor Tony Goldwyn (with credits in Oppenheimer, Law and Order, among others), who will be joined by New Hampshire’s full federal delegation and with other party leaders to highlight the threat Trump poses to reproductive freedoms.

This event marks the anniversary of the Dobbs decision, which saw Trump’s Supreme Court appointees overturn Roe v. Wade, leading to severe abortion restrictions nationwide.

On Thursday, June 27, the campaign will host 13 debate night watch parties across the state, with the largest gatherings in Concord at the Red River Theatre and in Manchester.

Following the debate, the campaign will kick off a Weekend of Action featuring over 40 canvass launches, phone banks, and other volunteer activities across the state.

This flurry of activity comes after the NH Biden campaign has opened their 14th campaign office in the state, while the Trump campaign has remained at just one office.
