State House Roundup Sue Ford

Dear Friend,
Last Tuesday, New Hampshire Democrats made history!

Over 120,000 voters cast a ballot in the Democratic primary, breaking our previous midterm or general primary election turnout by tens of thousands of people – that’s amazing!

This astounding turnout is a testament to all of your hard work reminding voters what’s at stake in this election and why it’s so important to elect Democrats up and down the ballot in the fall.

Huge congratulations go out to our next Governor, Molly Kelly, and our next 1st Congressional District Representative, Chris Pappas, for winning their respective primaries! Both nominees are proven fighters for all hardworking Granite Staters and will be incredible advocates for their districts.

But we should also be sure to thank every person who stepped up and ran for office this year. Successful or not, our Party is better off because so many great candidates got off the sidelines and involved!

Now, with the primary over it’s time for us all to turn our focus to the general election and make sure that we win back democratic control of the Corner Office, State House, State Senate, Executive Council, and keep both congressional seats blue. We have just 50 days before Election Day so there is no time to waste. Sign up to get involved TODAY by clicking HERE to sign up for an event near you!

Please continue to use this newsletter as a tool for your local committee meetings or as a supplement to your own newsletter.  

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Supporter Housing

Our Coordinated Campaign is in full swing for the 2018 election! We are bringing on staff and volunteers to support our town and county committees to turn out the vote in November. We need your help finding places for them to stay. Whether it is for a week or through election day – any little bit helps. Please fill out THIS FORM if you are able to house a volunteer or staff member.

Take the #24HourNH Pledge!

We have only 7 weeks before the 2018 election. That means there are just 7 weeks left to knock doors, make calls, talk to our neighbors, and make a difference in the most important election of our lives.

That’s why we’re asking YOU to commit 24 HOURS of volunteer time by Election Day and take the #24HourNH Pledge!

You can knock doors or make calls for three hours every week, or have two or three marathon days of action – it’s up to you!

All that matters is that you are talking to voters, supporting Democrats, and doing your part to make a difference in New Hampshire.

Click HERE and take the #24HourNH pledge!

Sununu Reality Check

At the NH Republican’s Unity Breakfast last Thursday, Sununu said: “I laugh when Democrats say ‘we don’t take corporate money…Of course, what business would ever give them money!” to laughter and applause from the Republican elites in the audience.

For almost two years, New Hampshire has seen that Sununu is nothing but a craven politician willing and eager to do the bidding of corporate special interests. His policies have always helped those at the top, while ignoring hardworking families who deserve help.

Sununu’s joke may be funny to him and his wealthy donors, but to the rest of us it highlights just how important it is to replace him with Molly Kelly, a person who will fight for the people of New Hampshire, not just those wealthy enough to donate thousands to her campaign.

Follow Sununu Reality Check on TwitterFacebook, and check out our website ( to get updates on how we’re holding Sununu accountable.
