Hey New Hampshire! Hear me out?

PETE BUTTIGIEG (a thread):

I'm a person in long term recovery (no alcohol/drugs 25 years!), and work in SUD treatment. My recovery, and work in the field, continues to reveal something important:
We all need each other. A LOT.
The beautiful life I now enjoy, was literally planted in the fertile soil of simple kindness from others...and grew into a sustainable lifestyle around my recovery community's principles of unity & service to others.
At my job in recovery, we work w/the whole family *whenever* we can, because recovery works SO much better as a "we" thing!

When therapists teach hurting families how to "fight fair" isn't actually about FIGHTING.

KEENE, NH — Senator Elizabeth Warren tells an audience of several hundred, “I was here about five months ago. It was two days after the Mueller report came out.” Warren adds, “and I called for impeachment.” The crowd cheers. #nhpolitics
WARREN: “It’s not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of constitutionality. Nobody‘s above the law, not even the President of the United States... If Congress does not hold this man accountable, he will break the law again & again. It‘s time for impeachment now.” #nhpolitics
FLAG: Senator Elizabeth Warren appears uncharacteristically flustered when asked if her ethics plan would allow her Vice President's son to serve on the board of a foreign company: "No," she said. "I don't know. I mean I’d have to go back and look at the details." #nhpolitics

OMG!!!! New Hampshire needs you! 💕❤️💃🏽

Will someone outside Bush/Clinton Cartel finally win office?

Will Soros Voting Machines do the counting again?
Real question.
How did Hillary win NH's electoral votes in 2016?

#WellHellzBellz #CartelState #VoterFraud #NH
♦ Trump rally Verizon Arena
♦ 2016 Hillary gathering H.S. hallway

♦ Hillary couldn't fill the school auditorium.
♦ +/-200 including press and paid staffers.
♦ More ppl outside with Benghazi signs.

How'd Hillary win NH electoral votes?

NH Convention with Team Beto: A Thread

Convention is the superbowl of NH politics. To say the least, @BetoForNH had been preparing for this for months. The results were incredible, and I'm proud to be here for Team Beto.

Let me share what we did.

#Beto2020 #FITN #nhpolitics
@BetoForNH (2) We’d been calling and inviting people to convention for MONTHS. Making endless calls, working long days, meeting after meeting, talking to the people, doing the work necessary to invite people into seeing what Beto wants to bring to America.
@BetoForNH (3) The day of. Huge to convention is how every campaign fights for space on convention grounds. Every campaign has to try to get there by - no joke - 2:30 in the morning to get there and be ready for the day. Here we are after 1 to no hours of sleep ready for the day

Why I'm Voting for @KamalaHarris in the #fitn NH Primary.

(Thread.) #nhpolitics
Living in the first-in-the-nation primary state, we have a responsibility to learn about presidential candidates early and up close, and to make a decision that will best help that candidate keep moving through the nomination process.
This time around, that responsibility feels overwhelming. When the next president takes the oath of office, she’ll be overseeing a multi-layered national crisis left by her predecessor.

NH reacts to @PeteButtigieg's debate performance.

State Rep. Donna Mombourquette: "We need someone like Pete, who is calm under pressure, able to swiftly and accurately analyze a situation, and offer fresh, new ideas that actually drive our country forward." #nhpolitics
@PeteButtigieg .@WilhelmForNH “Pete recognizes that not only do we need a new approach to address the pressing challenges facing our community, we must do so in a way that ensures everyone has a seat at the table and that our differences make us stronger." #nhpolitics
@PeteButtigieg @WilhelmForNH .@jschaffercarr "Pete’s performance at the debate was so refreshing. He showed the honesty and accountability our country needs but is all too rare among leaders today" "he understands this election is about more than just defeating Trump, it’s a defining moment for our nation."

Today, I’m the proud recipient of my very first #VETO!

This bill was my effort to address unconstitutional and inhumane problems in our county jails, at -no- cost to taxpayers.

Here’s how HB349 works:
You in jail?

Want a second opinion on a medical matter?
Superintendent said no?

Pay for it yourself, and we’re all set.

…Groundbreaking stuff, right?

A few years ago, a woman delivered a stillborn child on the FLOOR of the Hillsborough County Jail. That infant DIED because the mother, in jail PRE-TRIAL, was arbitrarily denied medical care.

major turnout for @PeteButtigieg's meet & greet in exeter, NH tonight. i'd guess a few hundred people at least won't get in - the line is down the block. (and there's a merch table!!) #fitn #nhpolitics
fwiw, i've covered buttigieg, harris, inslee and gillibrand in #nhpolitics so far. pete definitely gets the most insta-clicks #onhere. (harris got a fair few too, but that was a few months ago.) the sign of a well-oiled social media machine, a focus from bots, both...? #fitn
a group of juniors from phillips exeter academy, down the street, got pulled from line to stand behind @PeteButtigieg on stage. they'll be able to vote in 2020; top issues are climate change, women's rights & stabilizing democratic institutions (!). #nhpolitics #fitn

This thread is nuts. New Hampshire’s male lawmakers are back in their pearl necklaces - meant to mock @MomsDemand volunteers’ pearl clutching - and insisting we arm school teachers who are mostly ... wait for it ... women. #NHPolitics
How dare these men - these elected officials - behave like this while our children and their teachers hide inside their schools during lockdown drills. While women are shot to death in temples and yoga studios and bank lobbies. This is a game to them. #NHPolitics
Here’s a take from the last time these lawmakers pulled this: “In New Hampshire and across the nation, the days of minimizing and intimidating women are over. While male lawmakers ‘clutch their pearls,’ we’ll be organizing to replace them.” #NHPolitics…

Former Senator Bette Lasky, addressing NH Senate Judiciary Committee in packed room in support of HB109, requiring background checks for commercial firearms sales: "Come together, put aside partisanship and do what is right for the citizens of New Hampshire." #nhpolitics
Throughout hearing, Senator French has asked questions about mental state,+whether it affects sales. Last question was essentially "What makes someone ineligible to own a gun?" French seems to be sincerely seeking information he should already be very familiar with. #nhpolitics

standing room only at likely the last @NRCgov hearing before relicensing seabrook nuclear plant. big crowd of IBEW union members from NH & MA supporting the plant; lots of locals with safety concerns. ~10 elected officials represented too. #nhpolitics #mapoli
.@SenJeb & @ChrisEllms of @GovChrisSununu's office speak in favor of relicensing seabrook nuclear plant - they say it's a huge source of clean energy that supports local jobs and economies. #nhpolitics
the focus for many people here - like engineer meredith angwin - is that seabrook must stay open to prevent another upswing in natural gas use & carbon emissions in new england. #nhpolitics

This is a wildly inaccurate interpretation of what the court ruling actually said. #NHpolitics
1. SB3 does not prohibit out-of-state college students from voting in N.H. It requires them to prove they live in the state when they’re registering, and critics/a lower court have raised concerns about that hurdle — but it’s not an outright ban.
2. The 5-0 ruling yesterday explicitly said it was *not* a decision on the merits of the underlying voter registration law. Instead, the court said there wasn’t enough time to change up the registration process before the election.

2016 upended all my previous experience with political analysis, and so I no longer have faith in my election thoughts. So you'd be wise to stop reading this now.

Still, I am having thoughts, specifically about the #NHGov primary, on which I'm not yet decided. #nhpolitics
The Kelly gubernatorial campaign seems the latest iteration of the formula whose previous iterations were the Shaheen and Hassan campaigns. Lots of institutional support, take the pledge, broad themes.

It works!

More accurately: it has worked.
Marchand feels like Cilley in 2012 (disclosure: I worked social media for that). Wonky, specifics, no pledge, willing to take risks, little institutional support (and so fewer resources for field,) etc.

Today Gov. Sununu realized former House Speaker Bill O’Brien’s goal of suppressing the vote of “liberal” college students. #RememberInNovember #NHPolitics…
Another result of this blatant voter suppression is putting to bed the fiction of a moderate governor. This is unabashedly Paul LePage territory. #NHPolitics
Former #NHGov and @SenatorShaheen: “Today, the Governor sent an unmistakable message to young people in New Hampshire that, rather than listening and responding to their concerns, they should be hindered from democratic participation.” #NHPolitics

Never forget that the goal isn’t fighting voter fraud, but, as stated explicitly here, to prevent young people from voting “liberal.” #NHPolitics
Gov. Sununu has endeavored to appear more moderate than the Tea Era of Bill O’Brien, but in reality he is about to accomplish O’Brien’s major goal of voter suppression. #nhpolitics
If the Governor signs this voter suppression bill into law, it means he knows a wave is coming and he cannot rely on the tradition of first-term govs getting an easy re-elect.

@ACLU_NH found that the SoS was discarding HUNDREDS of absentee ballots each election without warning due to perceived handwriting discrepancies -- often due to age or disabilities. #NHSoS #21stin21
(In June, we’re sharing 21 new policies/procedures to bring our SoS office into 21st century -- and strengthen NH better than our SoS's continued focus on restricting voting rights) #nhpolitics
This is completely unacceptable. We should never be disenfranchising voters for unverified handwriting discrepancies without giving them a better chance to confirm their vote. Read about the ACLU's case 'Saucedo v. Gardner' here:…

Let me tell you a story about the great lengths Republicans will go to in order to block access to the ballot box. All of this is unfolding right now in New Hampshire. #NHpolitics
Where it started: NH Republicans passed SB 3 last year, an overly bureaucratic and unnecessary law aimed solely at making it harder for eligible voters to cast a ballot.
SB 3 requires new documentation for people who register within 30 days of an election -- documentation that can often be difficult for students, low-income folks and new residents to get their hands on.
