GOFFSTOWN, N.H. – Congresswoman Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) hit the campaign trail for Elizabeth Warren on Sunday, sharing her thoughts on why Warren should be president to an assembled crowd at Apotheca on Main Street.

In her statements, Clark contrasted a corrupt and out-of-touch Washington with a Warren that she sees as a champion of the people, specifically in regard to her work to protect health care access for working Americans.

“She feels so strongly on issues because she has a clarion voice,” said Clark. “She knows who’s side she’s on and its ours.”

Clark also noted one of the key criticisms Warren has faced so far: her electability in a non-primary electorate. On that point, Clark noted Warren’s victory over former Senator Scott Brown.

One member of the audience asked Clark whether President Donald Trump’s recent actions in relation to Ukraine came in part because of a desire to face Warren in a general election. Clark thought if that is the case, then the Trump campaign is making a mistake in hoping to face Warren.

“I think that’s yet another poor idea, if she’s the one he wants to meet head-to-head,” said Clark. “I don’t think (the Trump campaign) understands anything about her. With him, there’s a bully. With Warren, there’s a visionary with all the policy chops to back it up.”

Goffstown Resident Larry Liberge thought the event was shorter than he expected, but he thought it was insightful.

Liberge has been supporting Warren now for approximately two months, although he would support any nominee that arises from the Democratic Primary.

“The list of candidates has been really impressive and it was really hard to come to that decision,” he said. “At this point, I’m looking for a candidate that is willing to really fight hard for the middle class and the lower class.”

Apotheca’s café has been no stranger to candidate visits so far this campaign season, with earlier visits from U.S. Senator Kristen Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) Miramar, FL Mayor Wayne Messam and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).
