The governor will make the announcement in Durham, N.H., on Friday during a Clinton campaign stop at the University of New Hampshire. 

Hassan has lauded Clinton for her plan to make college more affordable, calling her the leader “that New Hampshire families need fighting for them.” 

The Democratic governor is reportedly mulling a Senate run and has yet to announce whether she will seek a third term in office. 

“ I will continue to stay focused on New Hampshire, but I also understand that at some point I need to make decisions about 2016, and that needs to be sooner rather than later," she told the Concord Monitor.
