Election Results 2010
Results are in, and some big changes are in store.
Gov. John Lynch was the sole Democratic survivor at the top of the ballot. Republican Kelly Ayotte won the U.S. Senate seat, and fellow GOP candidates Frank Guinta and Charlie Bass were victorious in the race for U.S. Congress.
At the State House, an all-Republican Executive Council is matched by red majorities in both the N.H. House and Senate. Only five blue senate districts remain, and the GOP pegs the House numbers at 298-102. That’s more than the two-thirds majority needed to veto-proof both chambers.
We’ll keep the platforms of the winning candidates posted for the duration of their terms. To learn more about your new legislators, check out the links below.
