Sen. Warren embraces supporters in Nashua

NASHUA – U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was greeted at a Nashua polling precinct Tuesday by a wave of supporters wielding signs in support of her campaign for the presidency.

During the peak of the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary, the Democratic candidate stopped by Nashua’s Ward 3 polling location at Amherst Street Elementary School for a brief meet and greet where she worked her way down a line of supporters standing out on the sidewalk. State Sen. Cindy Rosenwald joined Warren, following behind her with a box of donuts to share with those in attendance.

As Warren navigated her way through the crowd, she stopped to hug, shake hands and take selfies with both young and old alike.

One of her younger supporters, Gabriel Freedman-Naditch, may be too young to vote in this election cycle, but that didn’t stop him from being present for the senator’s brief stop in the Gate City. When Warren got to him, he let her know he skipped school to be there. Freedman-Naditch said he has really loved Warren since she became his senator, and so he made sure to be present in the midst of the media frenzy swarming Warren.

“I really wanted to fight for a campaign that I believe in,” Freedman-Naditch said.

The 15-year-old supporter attends Gann Academy in Waltham, Massachusetts, and said Tuesday was a great experience.
