New Hampshire's new Democratic-majority state legislature is voting today on electing NH's secretary of state. Dems could oust longtime SOS Bill Gardner, nominally a Dem, who is notorious for backing Republican voter suppression measures. Background here:…
NH Dems may try to pass redistricting reform again after they overcame GOP gerrymandering to win majorities in 2018. But GOP Gov. Sununu could veto a statutory proposal, & Dems lack the 60% supermajorities for a constitutional amendment if all Rs voted no…
New Hampshire's new Dem-majority Senate & House are voting in a joint session to elect the next secretary of state. Livestream here:…
WOW: 208-207 plurality for Bill Gardner, 209 votes needed to win. A second ballot will take place for New Hampshire secretary of state
Supporters of Bill Gardner are trying to undermine past precedent of requiring a majority of ballots cast to determine the winner. They also seem to want to stop Colin Van Ostern from addressing legislators before the next second ballot #NHsos
BREAKING: Bad news for voting rights: New Hampshire Dems failed to oust longtime Dem Secretary of State Bill Gardner, who backed GOP voter suppression laws & eagerly served on Trump's bogus voter fraud commission. Gardner won with GOP & dissident Dem votes…
The final vote was 209 for Gardner & 205 for voting rights supporting Dem Colin Van Ostern
It's shameful that a big enough minority of New Hampshire Dems found this argument more persuasive than the facts that SOS Bill Gardner eagerly served on Trump's voter fraud witch hunt commission & backed GOP's efforts to stop college students from voting
Contrast this with the lame-duck power grabs that gerrymandered Republican legislatures are executing in Michigan, North Carolina, & Wisconsin. No, both parties are not the same
