Restoring Common Sense Government to New Hampshire
November 4, 2014 Election Results
New Hampshire was a bit of a bright spot in a difficult night nationally for Democrats.
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to bring about a very good night for top Democrats
running in our state. Republicans racked up wins in the NH Senate and NH House.
The hardest thing about tonight for us was the loss of Carol Shea-Porter to Frank
Guinta. We are just so proud of Carol for standing by her beliefs, running an honest
and uncorrupted campaign against a barrage of lies. We are grateful for Rep. Shea-Porter’s
service so far, and really hope there is more of it in the future. Save your signs.
