Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the latest presidential hopeful to stop by the NHPR offices in Concord for a candidate forum with The Exchange.

After she had a few moments to mingle with a small crowd at the building's entrance, Clinton — accompanied by a few staffers and Secret Service personnel — offered her best "elevator pitch" explaining why she's qualified to be president. 

You can check back at NHPR.org for more from Clinton's interview with The Exchange. And you can catch up on all of the candidate elevator pitches we've done so far right here.
