While votes and final tallies are still being calculated, it seems that NEA-NH recommended candidates did far better this midterm election than 4 years ago.
In 2010, NEA-NH candidates won the Governor’s race. No recommended US House Reps or Executive Council members won. Five recommended NH Senate candidates won, and 105 NEA-NH-backed NH House members were elected.
In 2014 the story is far better. NEA-NH recommended candidates won the Governor’s office, the US Senate position on the ballot, 1 of the 2 US House Reps, 2 Executive Council seats, 10 NH State Senate positions and 170 NH House seats.
