We’re just two days away from a special election for the New Hampshire House.
It’s a Republican-held district – the seat of the former GOP speaker – and the Koch network and national Republican figures are going all-in to keep it red.
This has been a tough fight, wire-to-wire – but it’s a fight we have to put our whole hearts into. The payoff from flipping red-leaning seats like this blue would be simply enormous.
Our candidate, Wendy Thomas, is doing everything in her power to mobilize and persuade voters in these final hours. Her team is out knocking doors, making calls, and booking last-minute digital ads – because this could very well come down to a handful of votes, and grassroots support is essential to achieve victory.
But the Republicans aren’t making it easy. They know how much momentum Democrats could gain with a victory here, and they are spending BIG to stop us.
National Republicans are getting desperate in Tuesday’s New Hampshire special election.
First, they brought in Mike Pompeo – Trump’s former secretary of state – for a fundraiser, while the Koch network poured in thousands of dollars of dark-money spending.
But now, Republican senator and 2024 contender Tom Cotton just weighed in, too – calling the seat “vital” and warning that a Democratic win would be seen as “a huge victory for the Democratic Party… foretelling good elections coming up for them in places like Virginia and New Jersey this fall, and in the midterm elections.”
For the first time in his career, Tom Cotton is actually right about something, Jake: Flipping seats like this from red to blue would be BIG for Democrats everywhere – but we only have a few days left to make it happen.
Cotton went on to explain why so many national Republicans and GOP groups are spending so much money on this race.
He said that he views it as the first step to “a huge comeback over the next two years” for Republicans, all over America.
We don’t have much time left to stop that GOP comeback in its tracks, but it’s going to take all of us pitching in to send state Democrats to victory.
