If the proliferation of lawn signs sprouting out of snowy lawns weren’t enough of a hint, Bill Clinton’s return to the campaign trail in New Hampshire might be: presidential primary season is down to the home stretch. 

After spending the first eight months of his wife’s candidacy behind the scenes, advising and fundraising out of sight of voters and the media, the never-shy former president is upping his level of public engagement. He was set to headline two rallies Monday, in Nashua and Exeter, plus more across the country in the weeks to come with the aim of helping erase Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’s neighboring-state advantage in New Hampshire and grassroots appeal in Iowa.
