PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has held a town hall meeting in a New Hampshire church, fielding questions about health care and the economy.

Some of the questions at Portsmouth's South Church came from children. A young girl asked how college could be made more affordable. A boy asked if the government could do more for the disabled. Clinton said those are problems she would address as president.

She also pledged to boost Alzheimer's disease research, declaring to an appreciative crowd that "the heavens support what we are going to do."

In the church venue, Clinton didn't mention Republican rival Donald Trump.

She said this should be a season of compassion, especially "for those of us who celebrate Christmas."
