Buttigieg, meanwhile, is doing all five of the Sunday shows — known in Washington as a “full Ginsburg” — and will then hold four events throughout New Hampshire, starting in Nashua late Sunday morning.
The candidates ended Saturday at a state Democratic Party dinner in frigid Manchester, where Buttigieg defended himself from attacks on his experience, and raucous crowds backing Sanders and Elizabeth Warren packed the rafters of Southern New Hampshire University Arena.
Overnight tracking polls in the state continue to show Sanders and Buttigieg jockeying for first place, after the same two candidates finished in the top two spots in the Iowa caucuses last week. Significantly behind them are Warren, Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar, who had her best night of polling on Saturday after what was widely regarded as a strong performance in Friday night’s ABC News/WMUR-TV debate.
Klobuchar, who isn’t appearing on any of the national Sunday shows, is beginning her day greeting voters at a breakfast spot in Concord, the state capital. Biden, meanwhile, holds his first event on the Seacoast in Hampton after appearing on ABC’s “This Week.” Warren will also be interviewed on “This Week.”
Here’s everything you need to know about Sunday’s strategy, where the campaigns are and what they are doing. Our reporters will be 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.
Biden: New Hampshire an ‘uphill battle’
The New Hampshire primary is in two days — and Joe Biden only has two public events in the state Sunday while his top rivals are barnstorming it. At noon, Biden has a get-out-the-vote in Hampton near the border with Maine and then another in Hudson near the Massachusetts border.
In a pre-recorded interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that aired Sunday, Biden acknowledged that winning New Hampshire would be an “uphill battle” – echoing remarks he made at Friday’s debate that he then felt the need to clarify Saturday, insisting, “I’m not writing off New Hampshire.”
As POLITICO noted last week, Biden has said he doesn’t need to win New Hampshire. And he’s campaigning like it.
