(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the New Hampshire gubernatorial race for incumbent Republican Chris Sununu.
Sununu won his fourth term in office, going up against Democratic challenger Dr. Tom Sherman. The two clashed on several issues in their debate including abortion, which has become a key issue in this year’s election cycle.
The races for Senate and governor in New Hampshire grew tighter just days before the election as candidates scrambled to win Congressional control for their party.
Decision Desk HQ also called the state’s U.S. Senate race for Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan.
Hassan fought off Republican opponent Don Bolduc. Bolduc had recently come into the spotlight after spreading false and discredited claims that schoolchildren were identifying as “furries and fuzzies” and using litter boxes in classrooms.
Democrats Annie Kuster and Chris Pappas both won reelection to Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st and 2nd Districts, according to Decision Desk HQ.
The outcome of New Hampshire’s races could affect the partisan balance of the U.S. Senate. Of the 100 Senate seats, 35 will see elections during the midterms, including one special election. Democrats have the effective majority with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote in the 50-50 split chamber. All 435 House seats are also up for election. Midterm election results will determine which party has legislative control, ultimately determining who sets the agenda for President Joe Biden’s remaining years in office.
