PETERBOROUGH — It’s time to come together, the N.H. Democratic Party says, after a rift between supporters of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders during the presidential primaries.
To that end, the Democrats are hosting a series of “New Hampshire Together” house parties, including one in Peterborough Wednesday night, before November’s election to try to unite the Clinton and Sanders factions and rally the party faithful for local elections.
Susan Ladmer of Peterborough had considered dropping out of the Democratic Party because she was unhappy with the way Sanders was treated throughout the primary process. But, she said, the Sanders campaign convinced her to stick with the Democrats and make change from within. “The revolution was never going to be Bernie Sanders. It’s all of us,” she was told.
Ladmer is now running for election as a Democrat to the Hillsborough County Commission.
