CONCORD, NH — New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley today announced that Jack Tormoehlen will serve as the New Hampshire Democratic Party's new Executive Director. Tormoehlen most recently served as the NHDP's Data Director and has been with the state party since 2019. Tormoehlen’s appointment was unanimously approved by the NHDP Executive Committee.
Following the announcement, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
"I couldn't be more excited to have Jack lead our team as we head into the 2024 elections. Jack brings a wealth of experience to the position, from data management, political relationship building, and fundraising. Jack has worked closely with our candidates, campaigns, and partners over the years, and with his leadership I know New Hampshire Democrats are positioned for success in these next two years, from town halls to the State House to the White House."
Tormoehlen has been with the NHDP for more than four years. He joined the NHDP in 2019 as Deputy Data Director after serving on the finance team for Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana's re-election campaign in 2018. In 2021, he was named Data Director and over the last two years worked closely with town chairs, campaigns, and outside organizations to ensure candidates and volunteers have the data they need to reach voters. These efforts played a large role in the successes that Democrats have seen in recent years.
“I’m thrilled to continue working with Chairman Buckley and the entire NHDP team,” Tormoehlen said, “New Hampshire Democrats are uniquely poised to take back the corner office and flip the state legislature, while also re-electing President Joe Biden, Congresswoman Annie Kuster, and Congressman Chris Pappas. Together, we are going to continue to build out a strong grassroots organization across the entire state that will allow us to share our message for how Democrats are fighting for reproductive rights, defending social security and medicare, and working to lower costs for all Granite State families.”
Tormoehlen replaces Troy Price, who is stepping down to return home to his family in Iowa. Price served as Executive Director for two years, joining the party in August, 2021. Under his leadership, Price helped lead the party through the final months of COVID-19 and helped rebuild the party's finance and grassroots infrastructure following the pandemic. During Price's tenure, Democrats saw historic victories in special elections, municipal elections, the historic re-election of Senator Hassan and the House Delegation, and nearly flipping the NH House. Price will remain on as an advisor to the party.
