NEW HAMPSHIRE-SWING DISTRICT
CONCORD, N.H. — It’s been 16 years since there was an open seat in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District — and now more than 16 candidates are hoping to fill it. Back when Republican Rep. John E. Sununu left to run for U.S. Senate in 2002, eight Republicans and two Democrats sought to replace him in what had long been a reliably red district. But after flipping in each of the last four cycles, it’s now a swing district in a swing state. The result? Eleven Democrats and six Republicans competing in Tuesday’s primaries. By Holly Ramer.
