New Hampshire House Democrats to Regain Majority

New Hampshire Voters Send a Clear Message on their Priorities

Concord, NH – House Democratic Leader and former House Speaker Terie Norelli issued the following statements after preliminary election results show House Democrats will regain the majority by a 222-178 margin a pick up of 120 seats from the 2010 election.

“As candidates for the New Hampshire House, we listened to voters across the state, and throughout all of our conversations with Independents, Republicans, and Democrats the message was crystal clear – return common sense to Concord! They told us they wanted a Legislature to put partisan politics aside and work on the issues that mattered to Granite Staters, in a civilized way. And that’s exactly what we plan to do.”

“The campaign season is over. We must now move beyond the partisan divide and begin to work together on behalf of all Granite Staters. We plan to keep our promises by focusing on jobs and the economy, reverse this Legislature’s ill-advised priorities, and end the harshness in the air that has plagued the House these last two years.”

“We will not let the people of New Hampshire down. We look forward to collaboratively working with our new Democratic Governor Maggie Hassan and the Republican-led State Senate to move our great state forward.”
