Maggie Hassan for New Hampshire

Holding NH Senate seat held by Maggie Hassan

Maggie Hassan unseated Republican U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte in one of the most competitive Senate races of 2016. And Hassan won by a mere 1,023 votes. In the 2022 midterm election, Hassan is one of the top three vulnerable Democrats in the Senate. Added to her first election’s slim margin is the likelihood that NH Gov. Chris Sununu will run. Sununu comes from a powerful state political family and his approval rating exceeds Hassan’s by 2 points. Hassan is the second woman in U.S. history to be elected both governor and U.S. senator.
