Arkansas Travelers with Hillary in New Hampshire

  • IN NEW HAMPSHIRE: Arkansas Travelers.
ABC checks in with 18 Arkansas Travelers working New Hampshire for Hillary Clinton as a similar group did for Bill Clinton in 1992.

The job of getting the band back together fell to Sheila Bronfman, the founder and organizer of the “Arkansas Travelers,” who got to work rallying the troops in April after Clinton officially announced her candidacy. By November, she had recruited more than 400 volunteers — many of them first-timers.

But some of the old-timers are on the move this year too, including Bronfman, who wears a whistle around her neck, which she uses to gather up her fellow “Travelers.” Ann Henry, 76, and her husband, Morriss, 83, — the couple who hosted the Clintons' wedding reception in Fayetteville, Ark., in 1975 – are also back on the campaign trail.

“We're people that have met her, we know her personally, and the other people around here perhaps have only seen her on TV,” Morriss Henry, a physician who served in the Arkansas state legislature, told ABC News in an interview. “They're interested in finding out who she really is in person, and to talk to somebody that has had that experience, like we have, of knowing both Bill and Hillary. And I've known them for a long time.”
