Two election epilogues

State Senate district 7 recount

Pro-life candidate Kathleen Lauer-Rago came within a whisker of unseating incumbent district 7 State Senator Andrew Hosmer (D-Laconia). Today’s recount confirmed Hosmer’s victory, 9578-9423, according to this afternoon’s report by Concord Monitor reporter Susan Doucet. That’s a margin of eight-tenths of one percent.

Nationwide, a good year for pro-life candidates

The Susan B. Anthony List released this infographic today, summarizing the results of its work this year to elect pro-life candidates. The group used here for comparison is of course EMILY’s List, dedicated to electing “pro-choice” Democratic women. While EMILY’s List candidates Shaheen, Kuster and Hassan won in New Hampshire, our state was one of the few bright spots for abortion advocates on election night.
