Lauren Chooljian | NHPR

The midterm elections are just a few days away. New Hampshire voters will be choosing who they want for governor, both congressional districts and in all 424 legislative seats.

But with all the Democratic presidential hopefuls in town lately, it's starting to feel more like 2020 than 2018.

Click play below to hear about a handful of recent visitors - New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro - and how they and their potential opponents are balancing these potential presidential campaign visits.
