(CNN) — After the longest primary battle in modern U.S. history, Barack Obama will campaign with former rival Hillary Clinton on Friday for the first time since the New York senator abandoned her presidential bid.
Sen. Barack Obama will make his first campaign appearance with Sen. Hillary Clinton on Friday.
Their joint appearance will be at a rally in Unity, New Hampshire, a small town on the state’s western border where the two candidates tied in the January primary.
“It is not only well-named, but in the New Hampshire primary both of us received exactly 107 votes,” Clinton said Thursday in Washington. “So it pretty much mirrored the rest of the campaign, where it was right down the middle.”
Clinton and Obama endured a protracted and, at times, fierce primary season. After months of divisive contests that took them through every state, the two are now focused on uniting their party in order to defeat the Republicans in November.
