Nassau Democratic chairman Jay Jacobs says he will head to New Hampshire with what he dubbed a “Long Island brigade” of 80 local volunteers to stump for Hillary Clinton next weekend in the run-up to the Granite State’s Feb. 6 primary.

Jacobs says that he has already been assigned to blanket Portsmouth, Exeter and Hampton for the final campaign push.

The local party leader, who has longtime ties to the Clintons, was on the front lines with Hillary Clinton eight years ago. He campaigned for her in Iowa, Texas, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire in her unsuccessful presidential bid against Barack Obama.
