Kuster Elected to Historic Fourth Term Representing New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District
(Concord, NH) - Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster became the first Democrat ever elected to a fourth term representing New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District.
“I’m honored and humbled by the support I’ve received from voters across New Hampshire’s Second Congressional District,” said Kuster. “New Hampshire voters sent a clear message that they want Republicans and Democrats to put aside the partisan differences to deliver real results for our state and our nation. That’s what I’ve done; from bringing together 105 Members of Congress to address the opioid epidemic to working across the aisle to improve care for Granite State veterans. And this is how I will continue to advocate for New Hampshire and work to improve economic opportunity for all Granite Staters.
“I want to thank my opponent, Steve Negron for maintaining a civil debate focused on the issues. I hope our race can serve as an example of how campaigns can disagree respectfully.
“I also want to thank my husband Brad and my sons Zach and Travis for their encouragement and support throughout this campaign. And of course, I want to thank all the incredible volunteers and supporters who knocked doors and made calls on my behalf.
“Now the hard work begins. We need to continue to focus on addressing the opioid epidemic, which has impacted families and communities across our state. We need to ensure that no veteran lacks the services and healthcare they need. We must come together to improve access to quality, affordable healthcare while maintaining protections for people with pre-existing conditions. We must preserve Social Security and Medicare and we must expand economic opportunity so that every Granite State family can get ahead. There is much that must be done, but I’m confident that through the New Hampshire approach of working together we can build a stronger Granite State for all.”
