NHGOP STATEMENT ON GUBERNATORIAL RACE AND SWEEPING DOWN BALLOT VICTORIES

CONCORD – Today, New Hampshire Republican State Committee (NHGOP) Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on the Republicans’ historic victories in the New Hampshire State House of Representatives, New Hampshire State Senate, Executive Council, and the corner office:

“Last night was a very good night for New Hampshire Republicans as we achieved historic victories all the way down the ballot and retained our majorities in the Executive Council, State Senate, and State House. Republicans throughout the state ran results-oriented campaigns and offered solutions to some of our state’s most pressing issues. We can all be proud of their hard-fought efforts. We ran a complete coordinated effort and executed the largest data-driven Republican ground operation in our state’s history.

“I want to congratulate Governor-elect Chris Sununu, our first Republican in the corner office in 12 years. Under Governor-elect Sununu’s leadership, he will work with state leaders to cut red tape, boost the economy, create good-paying jobs right here in New Hampshire, and put forth a serious plan to combat the opioid epidemic. Governor-elect Sununu will change the failed Democrat status quo that we have seen for far too long in Concord.

“For the first time in years, Republicans have control of the corner office, both chambers of the Statehouse, and the Executive Council. Today is truly a historic day in New Hampshire and under Republican leadership, our state will grow to new limits.”
