Concord, NH- The New Hampshire Republican State Committee announced today that it has nearly 90 percent of its seats filled for the November election. The NHGOP and its candidates filed a full slate for the State Senate and Executive Council. Additionally, Republicans filed to run in 91 percent of the offices on the county level, and 88 percent of the districts for state representative are filled.
Chairman Wayne MacDonald stated, “The number of candidates running for office across the state shows the amount of enthusiasm behind the GOP as we head into an historic election season. Republicans are united in our efforts to defeat President Obama, but on top of that this week’s filing numbers show that the GOP is poised for a successful year all the way down the ballot. Candidates are stepping up because they want jobs and a limited government, and they know that the Democrats’ agenda drives us more into debt and toward a job-destroying income tax.”
When compared to the Democrat's recruiting efforts, the GOP is on top. Democrats left a State Senate seat vacant (District-11), filled only 44 county seats compared to the GOP’s 66 and overall the GOP edged out the Democrats by approximately 4 percent when considering all seats for elected office.
