CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will be in New Hampshire on Thursday to campaign for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Molly Kelly.

Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, has been campaigning around the country to help elect female candidates.

She plans to join Kelly at a candy store in Concord on Thursday. The two are expected to talk with employees about paid family and medical leave. Later in the day, they will kick off a phone bank in Concord staffed by women who are calling potential female voters.

Kelly's support for paid family leave has been one of the big issues in her campaign against Republican Gov. Chris Sununu.

Sununu has said a recently failed bill in the Legislature wouldn't have been sustainable in a few years. Kelly has vowed a new bill would succeed if she's elected.
