The Democratic presidential primary field is on a collision course following the first set of debates, with several candidates planning appearances in New Hampshire this weekend.

Senator Kamala Harris said she will travel to the state Saturday. It will be the California Democrat’s fourth New Hampshire stop, according to her campaign.

Harris’s campaign announced her trip following her commanding debate performance late last month, when she clashed with former vice president Joe Biden on his recent comments about working with segregationist senators.

Biden, meanwhile, said he will campaign in New Hampshire on Friday at a cookout hosted by the New Hampshire Young Democrats at Cisco Brewers in Portsmouth. The event will mark Biden’s third trip to the Granite State since he announced his presidential run in April.


Indeed, New Hampshire will be flush with Democratic candidates for president in mid-July, as Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey has also announced another swing through the state Saturday and Sunday.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg is similarly headed back to the Granite State on Friday for a series of events focused on his plan for national community service.

Former congressman Beto O’Rourke is holding seven public events in the state Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Finally, Representative Seth Moulton is making several stops in New Hampshire on Saturday before heading to Iowa on Sunday, according to his campaign.

The march of candidates will continue next week as former Obama official Julián Castro visits the state on July 18 and 19.
