Presidential contender Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will kick off her upcoming three-day swing through New Hampshire with a stop in Concord.

The Monitor has learned the Democrat from New York will take a walking tour of downtown Concord on Friday morning. Gillibrand will start the tour around 11 a.m. at Revelstoke Coffee in Eagle Square.

The senator will then head to Dover, where she’ll be guided on a tour of downtown businesses by Democratic National Committee member Bill Shaheen.

Later in the afternoon, Gillibrand will meet with members of the LGBTQ community in Somersworth, which is known as New Hampshire’s “Rainbow City.” The gathering will take place at Teatotaller, a café that’s become a mecca for local Democrats and progressive activists.

Gillibrand, who launched a presidential exploratory committee last month, will be in Exeter Saturday morning, teaming up with Democratic state Sen. Jon Morgan to take a walking tour of downtown businesses.

The senator then heads west, for a meet in greet with voters at Keene’s Community Kitchen. Later, Gillibrand holds a town hall in Hanover at Dartmouth College, her alma mater. The 3 p.m. event is scheduled to take place at the Hopkins Center’s Alumni Hall.

The visit is Gillibrand’s second to the first-in-the-nation primary state since launching her campaign. Two weeks ago she made stops in Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth, Durham and Littleton.

Gillibrand was last in Concord in October, when she campaigned with Democratic gubernatorial nominee Molly Kelly. The two stopped at Granite State Candy Shoppe and helped to kick off a women-to-women phone back at the NEA-New Hampshire offices in Concord.
