GOP slaughtered in NH

by eriposte

The Union-Leader sayeth:

The Associated Press reports that the Democrats have clinched control of the New Hampshire House for the first time since 1911. Their current count in the 400-member chamber: 213-153 Democratic. Staggering GOP losses in Manchester and Strafford County were part of the landslide.
Democrats have picked up at least six state Senate seats. A 16-8 domination by Republicans has swung at least to 14-10 in favor of the Democrats. If GOP Senate President Ted Gatsas loses to Bob Backus, the Democrats will gain a 15th seat.

That is in addition to the upset Democratic US House wins in NH-01 and NH-02. About time. Thanks to the fine folks in NH!
