State House Roundup Sue Ford

Dear Friend,
Last week was a difficult one for us all. As Dr. Ford bravely testified in front of Senate Republicans that had worked steadily to dismiss and delegitimize her, people across the country looked on with disgust.

The disrespect Republicans have shown to Dr. Ford during her and Brett Kavanaugh’s testimonies was appalling. And Governor Sununu’s continued support of Kavanaugh is inappropriate and disqualifying.

If anything, these testimonies only solidified exactly how much is at stake in this election.

As of this weekend we’ll only have one month until Election Day and we still have a lot of work to do to elect Molly Kelly, Chris Pappas, re-elect Annie Kuster, and bring Democratic control back to the State House, State Senate, and Executive Council.

To mark the remaining days until the election, this weekend our field team will be holding a One Month Out Weekend of Action!

All across the state we’ll be launching canvasses to remind voters what’s at stake in this election and why it’s so important to vote for Democrats on November 6th.

Can we count on you to play your part electing Democrats and sign up to canvass this weekend?

Sign up here to find a canvass near you today!

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.

Action Alert: Protest Jeff Flake

Join us this afternoon to encourage Flake to believe women and to do the right thing by listening to Dr. Ford and opposing Kavanaugh’s nomination.

After Thursday’s hearing, it has become abundantly clear that Kavanaugh has no place sitting on the Supreme Court. Senator Flake’s calls for an FBI investigation are admirable, but they don’t mean anything unless he backs his decision up with real action.

Let’s come together and urge him to do the right thing and vote “no” on Kavanaugh!

Where: New Hampshire Institute of Politics, Manchester NH

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 five weeks before the 2018 election. That means there are just five 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


October is #StopSununu month! For the next 31 days, we’ll highlight 31 reasons to vote Sununu out of office.

Number 1: Sununu’s major initiative in the 2018 legislative session was his school voucher bill, SB 193, which would have stripped an estimated $265 million statewide in funding over 13 years from public schools and redirect it to unaccountable private, parochial, religious and homeschools that are, in some cases, ill-equipped to handle students with disabilities or unwilling to enroll LGBTQ+ students.

The school voucher bill was opposed by students, parents, teachers, principals, superintendents and administrators, public school advocates, and newspaper editorial boards across the state. It passed the Senate but failed by 5 votes in the House due to a lack of support from Sununu’s own party, which hold the majority. Despite this stunning rebuke, Sununu has promised to make school vouchers his first priority if re-elected. We can’t let that happen.
