WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is considering staffing and strategy changes to her campaign ahead of an expected loss in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday, Politico reported, citing six unnamed sources.

Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton, had planned to reassess staffing after the first four primaries but are becoming increasingly critical of their aides and demanded the evaluation sooner, according to the report.

The former secretary of state would be more inclined to add new staff rather than fire current employees, Politico reported.

Clinton, once the clear front-runner, is now being challenged by Bernie Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, who is expected to win the first-in-the-nation primary.
