The state of New Hampshire has swung more wildly than any other during this 21st Century. Therefore, a close poll in one of the congressional districts, though eyebrow raising, is not altogether out of character for this politically volatile upper New England region. The University of New Hampshire polled the state and found a developing close race in the state’s 2nd CD, or the western district of the Granite State’s pair of districts.
According to UNH (10/9-12; 410 NH-2 likely voters; online), Rep. Annie Kuster (D-Hopkinton/Nashua) leads former state Representative and 2018 congressional nominee Steve Negron (R) by only a 49-45% margin. Even if this poll is correct, it is unlikely the GOP can take advantage of the race status. Mr. Negron only had approximately $43,000 cash-on-hand through September 30th. Though her September report is not yet available, the Kuster pre-primary, August 19th, disclosure showed the Congresswoman with more than $2.4 million in the bank. The resource advantage here, in a state where political fundraising and spending is generally low, should be regarded as the clinching factor for Rep. Kuster.
