New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District has unseated more incumbent House members than any CD in the United States since 2006. In an open seat situation last year, NH Executive Councilor Chris Pappas (D) defeated former police chief Eddie Edwards (R) by a healthy 54-45% margin. But, considering the competitive history of this district, one can never fully predict what the voters here will do.
Mr. Edwards confirms he is considering running again next year. Republican Party leaders, however, may prefer to look in a different direction because the 2018 nominee under-performed in terms of attracting votes and fundraising.
