State House Roundup

Dear Friend,
What a truly fantastic week to be a New Hampshire Democrat!In the face of overwhelming odds, we regained control of the US House through the election of Chris Pappas and the re-election of Congresswoman Annie Kuster. We also gained control of the Executive Council, the State Senate, and the State House!

And while Molly Kelly won’t be sitting in the Corner Office next year, her campaign cut off Sununu’s coattails and helped pave the way for our many historic gains up and down the ticket.

Thank you for everything each of you did to make these victories a reality. The doors we knocked, the calls we made, the letters we wrote, and the signs we held all made a difference. And with these new majorities, Democrats have the power to implement legislation that will help all Granite Staters have the opportunity to succeed!
