CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Chelsea Clinton is in New Hampshire campaigning on behalf of her mother with less than a month to go until the state votes in the first presidential primary.

The only child of President Bill Clinton and the former secretary of state, Chelsea Clinton is making her debut appearance in the 2016 campaign Tuesday with three planned stops in New Hampshire.

Hillary Clinton faces a tough race in the state as rival Bernie Sanders continues to make gains there and in first-to-vote Iowa. The younger Clinton is scheduled to swing through Iowa on Jan. 16.

Chelsea Clinton spent Tuesday morning promoting her mother's plans to expand early childhood education.

She recently announced she is pregnant her second child, a topic her mother frequently boasts about on the campaign trail.
