New Jersey and Virginia Gubernatorial Elections Update

New Hampshire Senate Update
by: Alexander Chen, 11/08/2009

 

Overview
Congratulations to Republicans Bob McDonnell, the next Governor of Virginia, and Christopher Christie, the next Governor of New Jersey! McDonnell defeated Creigh Deeds in 59-41, and the GOP swept the Virginia Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General’s offices. Christie defeated incumbent Jon Corzine last Tuesday, 49-45, and both McDonnell and Christie will be inaugurated in two months.

The former Attorney General of NH, Kelly Ayotte, has officially declared her candidacy for the United States Senate seat held by the retiring Judd Gregg. She had her official kick-off event on October 24, and her fundraising is going quite well. She is a Republican and will face some token primary opposition, but will likely secure the nomination. The presumptive Democratic nominee, Congressman Paul Hodes (NH-2), voted for the health care bill and has a strong-liberal voting record.

In the news

Democrats pass the health care bill… but, only with a five-vote margin. Maybe the Senate will have better luck?
