The pendulum continues to swing when it comes to elections in New Hampshire.  Republicans on a local level continued to do very well in the November 2016 elections.  In particular, in the towns of Barnstead, Alton, and Gilmanton  Republicans came out on top winning all 4 seats in the House of Representatives    In Belknap County, Republicans won 17 of 18 seats, for a net loss of 1 seat.  In the Senate, all 3 Republican candidates representing different areas of Belknap County, were victorious, a gain of 1 seat.   Our candidate for Governor, Chris Sununu, was victorious giving New Hampshire their first Republican Governor in 14 years!  Unfortunately, Republicans didn't fare as well in Congressional and US Senate races; Cong. Frank Guinta lost to Shea-Porter, and Sen. Kelly Ayotte lost to Hassan.    

In the presidential race, Republican candidate Donald Trump was elected President of the United States in a stunning upset.  Most polls indicated that Hillary Clinton would win, but they were wrong!
