The 2018 midterm congressional races are being described as the most important in a generation, or even a lifetime.
Suffice it to say that the outcomes will matter more than most. Each race is, inescapably, a referendum on the policies and behavior of President Donald Trump and the merits, or demerits, of one-party rule.
In her three terms in Congress, 2nd District Democratic Rep. Anne Kuster has taken the lead on two issues vital to New Hampshire: the need for federal assistance to combat the opioid crisis that’s claiming the lives of hundreds of residents per year, and the inadequate delivery of health care to the state’s veterans. She has proven that she can work across the aisle with Republicans on issues like campaign finance reform and infrastructure funding. If re-elected, and if the Democrats control the House, Kuster will become chair of that body’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, a position likely to assume increasing importance. Kuster has served the state admirably and deserves re-election.
