NHDP Statement on Retirement Announcement of Congresswoman Annie Kuster

CONCORD, NH - The New Hampshire Democratic Party released the following statement regarding Congresswoman Annie Kuster’s announcement that she will retire at the end of her record sixth term representing New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District:

“Representative Annie Kuster comes from a long line of public servants, and throughout her time in Congress, it showed. Using her pragmatic and straightforward approach, she fought to protect reproductive rights, defended the LGBTQ community, worked to end sexual violence, combatted the opioid epidemic, supported our veterans, and bolstered small businesses and our economy in New Hampshire,” said NHDP Chair Ray Buckley. “Representative Kuster wasn’t just a leader in the Granite State, she was a national figure who made working across the aisle a staple of her leadership. She was also willing to stand up to her own party and defended New Hampshire’s First in the Nation Primary. For that and so much more, I am forever grateful for her service to our state. As the first woman elected and longest-serving member in the history of New Hampshire’s Second District, she will always be known as a trailblazer. I have also been lucky enough to know her as an incredible friend of 50 years. I wish her well in her next chapter and send my thanks to her, Brad, and the rest of her wonderful family for their sacrifices over the years.”
