    Breakdown of the 2016 Republican Wave in NH offices

    While it is true that New Hampshire voters sent the worst people in New Hampshire to live in a swamp, this was a Republican wave year for New Hampshire state and county based positions.

    2016 New Hampshire County Office Election Results

    Many people are aware that the voters just elected Republicans to control the entire state government from the governor and executive council, to the New Hampshire Senate and the New Hampshire House. However, it is county offices that really show how dominate Republicans were in winning control of the New Hampshire government. 87% of the county offices with a Republican candidate went to the Republican candidate. Only 40% of the county offices with a Democratic candidate went to the Democratic candidate.

    Republicans won 71% of the 73 county office positions up for election in 2016. Democrats only won 29%.

    52 out of the 60 Republicans that ran were elected. 21 out of the 52 Democrats that ran were elected.

    Half of the counties only elected Republicans to county offices. The most populated county, with both of New Hampshire’s major cities, only elected 1 Democratic candidate to county office. No counties only elected Democrats to county offices.

    Only 292,000 out of the 1,331,000 people in New Hampshire live in counties where Democrats won the most county offices. However, 2 of the 3 county commissioners in Cheshire County are Republicans, so that county government is controlled at least in part, by Republicans. Republican county officials control counties where 78% of the New Hampshire population live. Only 16% of the New Hampshire population lives in the 2 counties controlled by Democratic county officials.

    Why not send the worst people in NH to live in a backwards swamp? DC sucks anyway. State politics is where it is at and while NH is already the freest state in the nation, we looks to expand on that freedom over the next two years. Even our RINO Speaker of the NH House said his top priorities over the next two years are Constitutional Carry, Right-to-Work, Election Reform, and to Cut Business Regulations! I $#@! you not. http://nhpr.org/post/jasper-gop-cont...on-law-changes

    Contact your reps, contact your senator and call the gov's office.

    There are few enough people in NH where that really makes a difference.

    And here's to the memory of Shem Kellog who worked to the very end on all these things.

    Miss you brother...
