Election 2022: Hassan, Bolduc debate election fraud, campaign stylesCONCORD — Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan defended her comparatively closed-door approach to campaigning Thursday, while her Republican challenger Don Bolduc used his more open style to justify casting further doubt on the integrity of New Hampshire elections. On Tuesday, he was back to saying it wasn't stolen, but said he changed his mind after talking to voters and can admit when he's wrong. But Hassan argued Bolduc's comments and others he has made about the 2020, 2022 and 2024 elections show he wouldn't be accountable to voters. Bolduc would feel free to ignore constituents "because he doesn't need to accept election results," she said.

NH considers restricting pets in carsCONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire is the only state that allows adults to drive without wearing seatbelts. “If you want your dog to be in the backseat and have his head out the window, great. All we’re trying to do is say that the dog should not be on your person at all,” Rhodes said. “I’ve seen dogs running back and forth between the front seat, the back seat, looking out one window, looking out the other window. I’ve seen drivers holding a pet with their left hand, and they’re trying to look over the dog as they are driving down the road,” he said.15 days ago Seacoastonline.com

I want to continue my work to improve our Maine schools if I return to Augusta.3 months ago Seacoastonline.com
