NH is a key swing state for the Presidency, for the House (2 close House races), and for Governor. I am highlighting three key races and some key counties. If we want NH to be the peak of the Democratic wave of victory in 2012, let's put our all into these races.

Maggie Hassan is our candidate for Governor of New Hampshire. We can see in the cases of Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, etc. the horrible damage Repub Governors can do to workers' rights, women's rights and gay rights. We cannot let the Repubs take the state house in New Hampshire.

NH-1 is another swing district in a swing state and another weakly held Repub district. This would be a great one to win.

Hillsborough County spans both NH-1 and NH-2 districts so is a key county for both Congressional races and for the Governorship. Extra effort in this county can help win the whole state.
Carroll County is in the NH-1 district so is a key county in one of the closest races in the Country. Again, extra effort in this county can help win the whole state.

Strafford County as well is in the NH-1 district so is a key county in one of the closest races in the Country. Again, extra effort in this county can help win the whole state.
I believe NH could be one of our next big wins for gay rights. Or at least is worth fighting for. Let's not forget that Iowa has so far outshone California on marriage equality, so we can't assume we should only focus on the supposedly liberal states. I think places like NH and Iowa have a sense of decency and fairness that will be as important as liberal values for winning the fight for equal rights for all. For that reason I include NH Stonewall Democrats.
I also believe in nurturing the next generation of Democrats. Young Democrats bring enthusiasm and idealism to any local party organization. Let's encourage involvement from Young Democrats.
A critical seat for retaking a majority in the NH State Senate!
