Democratic candidates find common ground in criticizing Trump
Democrats locked in an increasingly competitive primary race have found something upon which to agree, following the President's tweets that four members of Congress should "go back" to their countries.
Speaking in Somersworth, Senator Kamala Harris called Donald Trump's tweets "racist and un-American." The criticism was just starting even as Trump doubled down, posting on Twitter: "I don't have a Racist bone in my body!" 
Cory Booker accused Trump of "trafficking in racism" to appease the base of his party. 
In his most recent visit, Joe Biden sounded a call for Democratic unity: “Remember who in God’s name we are: this is the United States of America, and we have never, never, never, never failed to do what we set our mind to, if we do it together.”

The candidates are coming...
John Hickenlooper, Julian Castro, and Amy Klobuchar are hitting the campaign trail in New Hampshire this week. Find all their stops (and look for upcoming events) with NHPR's 2020 Candidate Tracker - a handy Google calendar you can bookmark or add to your own calendar app.

Upgrade To The New Durham Dems Website

We upgraded the look and function of the New Durham Dems website this morning!

The new site should be faster and more responsive, whether you are on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or trying to get information on your phone. The new mobile version has greater visual appeal and provides more function over the old mobile version.

We think all of the elements and features should be fully operational again. We will continue to make some changes over the coming weeks. If you find that something is not presenting or is not working please let us know. Thank you.
