Hostage released at Hillary’s Rochester, NH, office.

A person that neighbors have described as mentally unstable is in custody tonight after storming Hillary Clinton’s campaign office in Rochester, NH.

The suspect, Leeland Eisenberg of Somersworth, surrendered to authorities peacefully. He may face federal prosecution as well as state charges including kidnapping, according to police.

Despite denials by anti-abortion advocates, it is believed that Eisenberg was upset with Hillary’s position on abortion and wanted to speak to her about the abortion issue.

Hillary is expected to arrive in New Hampshire to meet with campaign staff. After the surrender Hillary said that she was “very grateful that this difficult day has ended so well. All my campaign staff and volunteers are safe.”
