The two will host a town hall meeting at Southern New Hampshire University, give keynote remarks for the Young Democrats Granite Slate Awards and hold a rally at Nashua Community College.

The swing through New Hampshire is the first time Omar, a progressive firebrand who’s made waves in her first term in Congress, will campaign with Sanders since announcing her endorsement for him at a rally in Minneapolis last month.

“In the sea of corruption, he continuously stood for justice and never bowed down to special interests,” Omar said in November. “That’s the resolve we need in a president.”

Omar is a member of a group known as “the squad,” consisting of four progressive women of color who were all elected to the House in 2018. Besides Omar, Reps.

Sanders and Tlaib held a rally in Detroit in October while Ocasio-Cortez, arguably the highest-profile member of the squad, has already traveled across the country with the Vermont Independent.
