Concord, NH – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement regarding the 2018 Midterm Election:

“For the last two years, New Hampshire Democrats made it their mission to make Governor Chris Sununu a one-term Governor. Well, yesterday, Granite Staters re-elected a Republican Governor for the first time in 24 years."

"Republican Senators Ruth Ward, Bob Giuda, and Harold French won races which saw hundreds of thousands of dollars in outside money flowing in support of their opponents, and other Republican State Senators fell short due to this heavy out-of-state influence. The New Hampshire House seems to be heading towards a slight Democrat majority. Over the next two years, Granite Staters will witness the lack of serious policy proposals presented by the New Hampshire Democrats."

"We were competitive in many seats while being extremely outspent by candidates and third party groups. New Hampshire Republicans have two years to build an organization in the State of New Hampshire that will retake the seats we lost last night and more."

“I want to thank all of the NHGOP candidates, staff, and volunteers for their hard-fought efforts this year. Since I became NHGOP Chairman on July 1, we have put into place a series of reforms and are building an infrastructure for future success. With Governor Chris Sununu leading the way, I am confident the New Hampshire Republican Party will succeed.”
