Hillary Clinton's campaign is reserving time to extend its TV advertising in Iowa and New Hampshire through the months of September and October, a Clinton campaign aide tells NBC News.

The buy size of the extension is $4.1 million -- $1.5 million in Iowa and $2.6 million in New Hampshire. That amount is on top of the $2.2 million it has already spent in these two states, according to data from NBC's ad-tracking partner SMG Delta.

The ads that Clinton has been airing in Iowa and New Hampshire highlight her mother's story — "She was abandoned by her parents at the age of eight, sent from Chicago to L.A. to live with grandparents who didn't want her" — as well as Clinton's own record fighting for families.
