Women Running in New Hampshire

Significance of State

New Hampshire is often noted for its moderate politics (especially in relation to strongly Democratic neighboring states) and its status as a prominent swing state. Voters predominantly selected Republicans for national office during the 19th and 20th centuries until 1992. Since then, the state has been considered as a swing state, and the Cook Political Report now classifies New Hampshire as "Even" after the 2016 election, reflecting that neither party has an advantage. Since 2006, control of the state legislature and New Hampshire's congressional seats have switched back and forth between Republicans and Democrats in a series of wave elections.

Annie Kuster ~ U.S. House, District 2

Annie is running to be elected for a fourth term to the U.S. House of Representatives to represent New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District. In 2012, Annie beat then-Republican incumbent in a rematch following her first attempt in 2010, when she was very narrowly defeated.

Jeanne Shaheen ~ U.S. Senator

Jeanne Shaheen is the senior, Democratic, incumbent Senator from New Hampshire. Early polling shows a potential for a close race, but the high concentration of independent voters in the Granite make it difficult to gauge if she’s truly in danger of being unseated. The New Hampshire primary will take place on September 8, 2020.
