After the truly terrible 2010 election in New Hampshire that installed a far-right Tea Party supermajority in the Legislature, it was a very good night for Democrats (and women!) across the Connecticut River.
Historic accomplishment: New Hampshire is the only state with a female Governor and an all-female Congressional delegation. Maggie Hassan easily beat Republican Ovide Lamontaigne for Governor, and the two Democratic women — Carol Shea-Porter and Anne Kuster — defeated Republican incumbents Frank Guinta and Charlie Bass.
The Dems have a real shot at gaining a dead-even split in the state Senate, and are making big gains in the House as well. And, of course, President Obama won the state handily. A great night for New Hampshire Democrats, and yet another repudiation of Tea Party politics.
