Granite State goes blue

The election results were amazing here. New Hampshire was thought of as the flinty, practical, down-to-earth Yankee Republican bastion of “Live Free or Die.” However, yesterday's election was a landslide for Democrats: Governor Lynch was re-elected by the largest margin ever, the state Senate went Democrat for only the second time since the nineteenth century, the state House of Representatives went blue from red by a huge margin – a first since 1922! – and even the Executive Council, the inner cabal that rules the governor, went Democratic. Both U.S. Reps, incumbent Republicans both, were turned out. It was a tsunami. Best wishes.
