US Senator Elizabeth Warren will make her first trip to New Hampshire this weekend as she continues to explore a run for president, three people with knowledge of the trip say.

Her scheduled visits to the first-in-the-nation primary state will include a stop at Manchester Community College early Saturday afternoon. This will be followed by a private house party in Concord with key activists.

The trip will mark the first time Warren has been to the state since the closing days of the 2016 general election, when she campaigned with Hillary Clinton. Last week she announced the formation of a presidential exploratory committee, and she visited Iowa last weekend.


In addition, the New Hampshire Democratic Party announced Wednesday that Warren will serve as the keynote speaker of its major fund-raising dinner in February.
