Capital Beat extra: Clinton visit is off

Hillary Clinton won't be visiting New Hampshire this weekend. The planned trip - which would have been Clinton's first visit to the Granite State in more than a decade - was postponed due to a family illness, said Karen Hicks, Clinton's national field director. Former president Bill Clinton's stepfather is sick, she said.

Earlier today, Clinton's campaign announced that she would hold a town hall-style event Saturday afternoon at Concord High School. On Sunday, Clinton had planned to attend an invitation-only breakfast for about 100 Democrats in Keene.

No date has been set for the rescheduled trip, Hicks said. Clinton is scheduled to speak at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's 100 Club fundraiser in March.

Look for more information in Thursday's Concord Monitor.

UPDATE: NH Dems now looking to fill their Saturday afternoon can instead go check out the Draft Obama rally in Manchester. (Not that he really needs drafting at this point.) Or they can rest up for Joe Biden's visit Monday by reading the Biden blog.
