The Day Before the Primary...

Being in New Hampshire has been pretty crazy. The candidates are going 24/7 and there's always something going on. I can't imagine what it must be like to do what they do, although, being a photojournalist isn't far off when sleep is concerned. Today I walked around Nashua for a couple of hours taking photographs of people in the streets and the large demonstrations taking place at nearly every major street corner. Here are some of the shots from the day.

"I support Hillary because she has been working for 35 years to make change in this country and she has the experience to get things done," says Jennifer Bovair, from Arlington, Virginia.
