CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Despite its early presidential primary, New Hampshire is a straggler for state primaries.
Just eight weeks before the general election, voters on Tuesday are picking nominees for an open congressional seat in a swing district, a Republican challenger in the other U.S. House district and a Democratic opponent for the incumbent governor.
Democrats Molly Kelly and Steve Marchand are vying to take on Republican Gov. Chris Sununu. Seven Republicans are competing to face U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster in the 2nd Congressional District, but most of the action has been in the eastern 1st District.
Chris Pappas and Maura Sullivan lead a crowd of 11 Democrats that also includes Levi Sanders, son of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Andy Sanborn and Eddie Edwards are considered to be the front-runners in the six-candidate Republican race.
