DLCC Announces New Hampshire Spotlight Endorsements

Press Releases

WASHINGTON — On the eve of the New Hampshire presidential primary, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is announcing its first slate of Spotlight candidates in the Granite State. After flipping both chambers of the General Court from red to blue in 2018, Democrats made historic improvements on education funding, criminal justice reform, expanded mental health services, and property tax relief. Protecting and expanding those majorities will be key to standing up to Governor Sununu and fighting for further progress in the state.

“Granite Staters saw what happens when we flip state legislatures from red to blue,” said DLCC President Jessica Post. “Our Spotlight candidates for New Hampshire have incredible records of public service and will keep fighting for progress in the House and the Senate.”

After making huge gains in 2018, New Hampshire Democrats currently hold 14 of the 24 seats in the Senate and 233 of the 400 seats in the House. 73 percent of DLCC Spotlight candidates in the state have won their races since 2017. This year’s first slate includes five House and five Senate candidates who are on the ballot this November:

The DLCC and state Democrats have flipped more than 430 state legislative seats and 10 chambers from red to blue since 2016, including the New Hampshire House and Senate. As part of its 2020 Flip Everything campaign, the DLCC plans to spend $50 million to target Republican-controlled legislatures across the country.
