    A public opinion survey in New Hampshire, the state that for a century has held the first primary in presidential race, indicates that Florida Gov. Gov. Ron DeSantis has a razor-thin margin over former President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary match-up. According to polling numbers released on Wednesday by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, 39% of likely Republican primary voters in the Granite State would support the first-term Florida governor, with 37% backing the former president. Respondents were provided a list of potential contenders for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, and DeSantis margin was well...

    Democrats are fighting tooth and nail to hold on to their ultra-narrow Senate majority this year in a midterm election cycle that has several of the party’s most vulnerable incumbents facing voters amid rising inflation and surging gas prices. Republicans need to net just one new seat this year to reclaim control of the upper chamber. Still, Democrats are more optimistic about their chances of holding their Senate majority than they are their House majority and are eyeing several opportunities to flip GOP-held seats.
  • New Hampshire residents warned of 'drastic increases' in electricity bills

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — New Hampshire officials are warning residents to prepare for higher utility bills, with electricity rates expected to rise this year and one utility proposing more than a 100% increase. According to the Office of the Consumer Advocate, several factors are at work in driving up energy costs. One is that New England heavily relies on natural gas, which means our electric bills in the region are tethered to the global market, which has been shaken by the war in Ukraine. "Unfortunately, I have to deliver the bad news that consumers can expect some pretty drastic increases in...

    Family members of murder defendant Isaiah Rivera-Perez and shooting victim Jaiden Connor filled nearly every seat in a Hillsborough County Superior Court hearing room Tuesday morning as a trial opened that will hinge on the state’s self-defense law. Homicide prosecutor Nicholas Chong Yen showed the jury a home security video that captures Connor, 17, running down Central Street and collapsing, where police found him with a bullet hole in his back. “He shot Jaden Connor in the back. He shot Jaden Connor while Jaden was running away from him,” said Chong Yen, an assistant New Hampshire attorney general. “That is...

    New Hampshire is getting close to passing a reform of current carry restrictions. The current law restricts the carry of loaded handguns on off-road vehicles, including snowmobiles, to those with a carry permit. The law is a relic of the days before New Hampshire passed Constitutional Carry in February of 2017, five years ago. On March 10, 2022, the New Hampshire House passed the bill easily, 204 to 134, with 54 not voting. HB 1636 reforms the law to remove the carry permit requirement for carry of loaded firearms on off-road vehicles. On April 20, 2022, the bill passed the...

On Sept. 12, 1988, Tremblay was found stabbed to death and left in the path of a train in Lawrence, Massachusetts. The sixth-grader had been with her mother at...

    The U.S. Navy is investigating what they believe is an intentional act of vandalism that damaged equipment within the Virginian-class submarine USS Texas (SSN-775) in the last month. The suspected vandalism took place as the USS Texas has been undergoing maintenance at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine. Shipyard spokesperson Danna Eddy said in a statement reported by the Portsmouth Herald on Thursday that federal government equipment on the submarine was damaged on or around March 29 of this year. The USS Texas arrived at Portsmouth in September 2020 and has been undergoing scheduled maintenance and system upgrades since then....

    Joe Biden laughed and chatted with Chris Sununu upon his arrival in New Hampshire on Tuesday just a few weeks after the Republican governor described Donald Trump as '****** crazy.' Biden touched down in Portsmouth to tout his infrastructure law. Sununu greeted him on the tarmac as he has on past presidential visits. The governor will not be attending Biden's speech. But the two men appeared jovial in their greeting of one another: a long handshake, Biden patted the governor's arm, Sununu leaned over to whisper in the president's ear. Biden made brief remarks at the airport as he was...

    President Biden and others traveling with him will wear a mask on his trip to New Hampshire on Tuesday, despite the federal mask mandate for travel being struck down this week. “During transit on today’s trip, masking will be required in line with CDC guidance,” the White House told The Hill. The president is traveling on Air Force One to Portsmouth, N.H., to visit the port authority at Portsmouth Harbor and deliver remarks on the infrastructure law. He will fly back to Joint Base Andrews to return to the White House on Tuesday evening.

    It's official: Iowa and New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation status as the caucus and primary openers of the presidential campaign season is no longer guaranteed after the Democratic National Committee approved a resolution that significantly changes the way the party picks its presidential candidates. "I personally believe, and I think I'm not speaking just for myself, that this is a powerful resolution of a thoughtful process that is going to be inclusive of all Democrats," said Jim Roosevelt Jr., who co-chairs the Rules and Bylaws Committee, after the measure passed Wednesday night. "That's our goal." The resolution upends the traditional presidential nominating...
  • Republican House candidate Matt Mowers voted twice in 2016 presidential primary: report

    Nypost ^ | 04/05/2022 | Callie Patteson
    At the time, Mowers was working on then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s presidential campaign. Mowers later served as a senior adviser to Trump before moving to the State Department. As the statute of limitations has passed, there is little chance Mowers could face prosecution over the potential violation. Still, legal experts say his actions could violate federal law. “What he has done is cast a vote in two different states for the election of a president, which on the face of it, looks like he’s violated federal law,” David Schlutz, professor at the University of Minnesota Law School, told the...

    Asked about 2024, Haley told Fox News "if we don’t win in 2022 there will be no ’24. That’s why we’re going around the country trying to make sure we do that." As for her timetable, Haley said "I don’t have to make a decision until the first of next year. But I can tell you I’ve never lost a race. I’m not going to start now. I’ll put a thousand percent into it and finish it. .. I’m going to fight for this country until my last breath, because I believe in her and I believe that we all...

    GOP Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire said Donald Trump is “crazy” and joked that if the former Republican president was admitted to a mental hospital, “he ain't getting out!” Sununu skewered Trump during the Gridiron Club’s spring dinner Saturday night, an annual Washington gathering featuring skits and speeches from Democrats, Republicans and journalists that are expected to “singe” but “not burn” the capital's political elite. “He’s (expletive) crazy!” Sununu said in salty remarks that roasted members of both parties as well as the Washington journalists who cover them. The governor added: "The press often will ask me if I...

    New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, a Republican, called Donald Trump 'f***ing crazy' at the white-tie Gridiron Dinner in Washington D.C. on Saturday. Sununu was the GOP rep for the evening, giving remarks where he railed against the former president – even as some within the party say Trump is the best hope for congressional Republicans winning back a majority in 2022 and back the White House in 2024. 'You know, he's probably going to be the next president,' Sununu said of Trump, before going on to sarcastically comment on the ex-president's 'experience' and 'sense of integrity.' 'Nah, I'm just kidding!'...

    Axios ^ | 3/22/2022 | Andrew Solender
    The chair of the House Democrats' campaign arm and some of the vulnerable members he's charged with re-electing are voicing support for a Republican-led mask mandate repeal bill. Why it matters: This would set up a potential showdown with the White House, which recently issued a one-month extension on the federal mask mandate for public transit and airplanes. The backing also illustrates how Democrats — especially those facing tough re-election fights — are trying to distance themselves from the pro-mask policies that defined their party for the past two years. "I'm completely over mask mandates," Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.),...
  • New Hampshire Gov. Sununu to veto redistricting map written by Republicans (McConnell wanted this guy for Senate)

    Democrats in the legislature and the state Democratic Party had urged the governor to veto the GOP maps, which they argue are gerrymandered and unfair. And they also pointed out that the state wouldn’t be in the current situation if Sununu hadn’t vetoed a bill passed in 2019 by the then-Democratic controlled legislature that would have created an independent redistricting commission to replace the current legislative controlled process. Leaders on the left thanked the governor for his veto. "We are thankful that Governor Sununu has decided to keep his word, stand with the people of New Hampshire, and reject his...

    New Hampshire took a giant step closer to becoming the first U.S. state to offer Ivermectin without a prescription on March 16.By a 183 to 159 vote, New Hampshire’s Republican-dominated House of Representatives approved HB1022, which would allow pharmacists to dispense Ivermectin under a standing order, meaning anyone can go to a pharmacist and get the human-grade of the medication.NH Republican lawmaker Leah Cushman, a nurse, and the bill’s sponsor, told The Epoch Times in January that she “had absolutely no doubt lives will be saved if human grade Ivermectin was available to COVID patients.”“House Republicans sent a clear message...

    Retired Army Gen. Don Bolduc, waging an "outsider" campaign for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, is adding some help from a well-known national political consultant. Rick Wiley, a former Republican National Committee political director and the campaign manager of Scott Walker’s 2016 presidential bid, is signing on with Bolduc as a senior advisor. The move is a significant development for the general’s campaign as other Republicans begin to enter the primary field to take on incumbent U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan. In a campaign memo shared with WMUR, Wiley says the political environment of this election year favors a candidate like...

    A judge ruled in favor of a Derry firearms dealer and the New Hampshire Department of Safety on Monday after two Manchester police officers sued when they were shot in the line of duty. The lawsuit alleged that the man who shot those officers back in 2016 should have never been sold a gun in the first place. Ian MacPherson has since admitted to the shooting and been sentenced to a secure psychiatric unit. The judge's order said Chester Arms did the required background check and the sale was delayed to look into a domestic violence charge, but that charge...
