“Political watchers say the real takeaway is that New Hampshire Democrats appear to have their political machine firing on all cylinders heading into 2022.”

In Case You Missed It WMUR’s Adam Sexton reported on Representative-Elect Catherine Rombeau’s historic victory in Bedford. Representative-Elect Rombeau’s victory was the first red to blue legislative flip in the country this year.

Key Points:

  • “In New Hampshire politics, Bedford has traditionally been a fortress of Republican voters, and the GOP currently enjoys a 12% voter registration advantage here over Democrats. but last night voters turned out for a State House special election and gave a narrow victory to Democratic candidate Catherine Rombeau.”

  • “Rombeau's win by 37 votes is the first flip of a legislative seat from Republican to Democrat in the country this year.”

  • “The victory is a referendum on a state budget that included new restrictions on abortion.”

  • “This election result is another sign Bedford is following a national trend of Republicans losing support in the suburbs.”
