In just a few months the 2018 campaigns will ramp up!
We are anxious to help replace John Sununu with a new Governor.
We want to assure that our retiring Congresswoman, Carol Shea-Porter, is replaced with another honest Democrat.
We want a NH State Senator who will represent the interests of NH citizens — not the interests of out-of-state profiteers and ideologues.
And we look forward to being able to support progressive candidates at many levels, including a surprise well-known Bedford education professional in her bid to become Bedford’s first Democrat State Representative in over 80 years!
