NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY-AFGHAN REFUGEE
CONCORD, N.H. — A 27-year-old Afghan refugee has ousted a four-term incumbent in the Democratic primary for a seat in the New Hampshire legislature. The Concord Monitor reports that Safiya Wazir beat District 17 State Rep. Dick Patten, who argued her refugee background would hurt her campaign. But Wazir pulled out Tuesday's primary victory by highlighting her years of community activism and dedication to education and family issues.

NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY-HOUSE
CONCORD, N.H. — New Hampshire is set to elect either its first openly gay member of Congress or its first black representative.

While it used to be reliably Republican, the district has flipped in each of the last four cycles, becoming a swing district in a swing state. By Michael Casey.
