New Hampshire’s Moving Blue! Let’s Help it Along.
New Hampshire Democrats had a great year in 2021, sweeping city mayoral, school board and alderman races throughout the state and prevailing in 3 out of 5 special elections for the state house. Swing Blue Alliance’s Win Blue NH team helped re-elect Manchester Mayor Joyce Craig and worked to engage and energize Democratic voters for a Derry special state house election.
We are now turning our attention to 2022’s federal races. We will be defending Senator Maggie Hassan’s seat with an improved prospect of winning in a competitive race now that Governor Sununu has announced he will not run for Senate. Congressman Chris Pappas will be running in a tougher district once Republicans finish their gerrymandered maps. Pappas is popular and a strong campaigner, but will need our help to keep his seat.
Actions we have planned for this winter:
- Team up with the Pappas campaign to knock doors and phone bank using highly effective Deep Canvassing techniques to engage in conversations about voter concerns, hone the message for the campaign, and increase and strengthen the Democratic base.
- Join with Working America, the community arm of the AFL/CIO, to recruit non-union working people to become members. Using multiple contacts over time, Working America has been very successful in motivating their members to vote Democratic.
- Participate with Rural Freedom Network and Granite State Matters to send targeted messaging postcards, making voters aware of Democratic successes and Republican subversion.
- Continue our work on down-ballot races, which are key to engaging voters, including the March town elections for Moderator and Supervisor of the Checklist, important election-related positions.
Join us in protecting democracy by keeping the U.S. House and Senate blue!
