Today it was announced that there is a new proposed route to the controversal Northern Pass project. “The new proposal includes an improved route, partially underground, through New Hampshire’s North Country, and was developed in response to concerns about potential visual impacts and property rights. “Over the past two years, we’ve met with landowners, citizens, key stakeholders, and public officials from across New Hampshire in an effort to better understand their concerns with our original proposal,” said Gary Long, president and COO of Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH), a subsidiary of the project’s parent company, Northeast Utilities. “We have … Continue reading →

In its first endorsement of the 2014 electoral cycle, Emily’s List threw its support behind Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, calling her a “truly remarkable leader” who has been a “champion for women, working families, and veterans.”
Stephanie Schriock, Emily’s List president, said the 2012 election proved women voters want leaders like Shaheen who will fight for equal pay and violence prevention legislation. “Republicans, she said, “haven’t gotten the message, and are doubling down on their anti-woman platform” that would “roll back the clock on women’s rights and opportunities.” That’s why Emily’s List is determined to send Shaheen back to Washington, she said.
In the 2011-2012 cycle, the group supported Congresswomen Carol Shea-Porter and Ann Kuster and Gov. Maggie Hassan, raising over $540,000 for the three candidates and spending $550,000 in independent expenditures.

Okay, I'm a bit biased on the issue, but fact is that Burt Cohen did a great job on today's WMUR CloseUP program, and his passion on the issue reminds me — many of us — how his leadership on this issue is needed. As I mentioned in a previous BlueHampshire.com post, he was ahead […]
(Ed Note: Part Moved below the fold) New Hampshire Democrats got it right when they nominated Maggie Hassan as their candidate for governor. Hassan breezed to victory 57 percent to 40 percent over Ovide Lamontagne in the General Election. Why did Hassan do so well? One reason is that her centrist views matched those of […]
I so much wanted to say something on BlueHampshire.com about the election of House Speaker, but since that's a decision by our new Democratic Caucus, I held back. But imagine, the choice was between former House Speaker Terie Norelli, and long-time Nashua Rep. David Campbell, who goes back to the 1970s with me. I favored […]
On Tuesday, I spent a couple of the early-morning hours in Maine, where I had gone door-to-door chatting with voters for the past several weeks about the gay marriage referendum. On my ride there and going over the N.H.-Maine high-level bridge on the Interstate, which gives one a grand view of Portsmouth, the Navy Yard, […]

Democratic candidates nationally, statewide, and locally have it so over the Republican candidates in all these debates. Okay, I’m somewhat biased, but I think that an objective view might come to the same conclusion. In the final three days of this final week before Election Day, I’ve maxed out on debate-watching. But to me it […]

The Portsmouth Herald today endorsed Maggie Hassan for governor. “While Ovide Lamontagne impressed our board as a good and decent man,” they wrote, “we respectfully disagree with him on almost every major issue that will likely reach the governor’s desk.” Here’s the Herald’s shortlist of issues on which Gov. Hassan would serve as a check […]
