Merica later reported that Clinton didn’t appear to share Kelley’s view.

Clinton spent the day campaigning in the state, which votes on Feb. 20. Earlier, the Democratic frontrunner held a townhall in Portsmouth where she expressed how “important” the decision New Hampshire makes is.

“I’ve had a great time travelling across the state, meeting, by now, thousands and thousands of people, having a chance to set forth my ideas, and to answer questions on whatever might be on someone’s mind. And I know that we are going to make the right decision,” she said.
