Executive Councilor Nick Pappas (D-Manchester) announced that he will join the open seat field of candidates for the 1st Congressional District. The eastern New Hampshire seat has defeated more incumbents since 2006 than any single congressional district in the country. Current Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-Rochester), who was twice defeated herself only to come back each time, has already announced that she will not run again. This race will be highly competitive. The New Hampshire Executive Council is a five-member elected board, divided into single-member districts, that has a check on the Governor’s veto power.
