State House results looking good so far
« on: November 03, 2004, 03:31:42 pm »

Here's a snapshot of results in the State House:

I haven't had time to digest the results yet but will be looking to see if the most libertarian and most authoritarian members are returning, will report back.

Liberty wins in NH House!
« Reply #1 on: November 03, 2004, 04:14:05 pm »

OK I've taken a "snapshot" of the results in the NH House, to see whether they favor liberty or not.  Basically I looked up the ten most liberty-oriented reps and the ten most anti-liberty reps based on their rankings at www.nhliberty.org/research.htm

Then I checked to see which of these had won re-relection.

I ignored representatives who failed to vote more than 50% of the time.

8 of the 10 liberty-hounds won re-election
but only 6 of the 10 authoritarians will be coming back.

Here it is in detail:


richard kennedy wins  wins reelection
Karen McRae, GOP (i) 6,283 - 9 percent - wins
Lee Slocum, GOP (i) 6,222 - 8 percent - wins
Gregory Sorg, GOP (i) 1,730 - 29 percent - wins
Michael Harrington, GOP (i) 5,409 - 7 percent - wins
Timothy Allen:  didn't run
Bob Introne, GOP (i) 7,193 - 7 percent  - wins re-election
Richard McCann - didn't run
Jarvis Adams, GOP (i) 1,777 - 28 percent   wins re-election
Timothy Easson, GOP (i) 5,525 - 7 percent - wins re-election

Bottom dwellers:

Arthur Pelletier, (D) - didnt' run
Judith Spang, Dem (i) 4,799 - 11 percent - wins re-election by skin of teeth
Sandra Keans, GOP (i) 5,749 - 6 percent  - wins re-election easily
Sandra Harris, Dem (i) 3,525 - 14 percent  - defeated ... WOO HOO!
Joe Harris, Dem (i) 4,129 - 16 percent  - wins reelection
Frank Callaghan, Dem (i) 5,434 - 6 percen - wins reelection easily
Richard Poulin - didn't run
Timothy Robertson, Dem (i) 6,542 - 10 percent - won
Maurice Pilotte, Dem (i) 2,296 - 30 percen  -wins easily
Jean Claudette  - didn't run.

So...
20% of the 10 most pro liberty candidates were lost
40% of the 10 most anti liberty candidates were lost.

Another piece of good news I didn't know of when I started this thread is that 8 of the 9 candidates supported by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance won their races..I believe all were state rep candidates.    

Fishere that's a decent idea actually, if you want to do up the numbers eliminating non-runners just head to www.nhliberty.org/research.htm
and let us know what your calculations show.

Actually, it's correct to include the ones who didn't run, especially if you include the party who replaced them.

On a national scale:
Senator from North Carolina - didn't run
Senator from South Carolina - didn't run
Senator from Georgia - didn't run
Senator from Florida - didn't run
Senator from Louisiana - didn't run
Senator from Colorado - didn't run
Senator from Illinois - didn't run
Senator from South Dakota - lost

Of the eight Senators not returning, seven didn't run.
But there were five Democrats and two Republicans who didn't run. Note: all seven seats went to the other major party.

If Dick Green were to run as Governor, he'd lose big in either the primary or the general election, because he wouldn't get the hard work of the activists. Therefore, for the good of the party, he either should not run, or should be defeated in the primary.

In two years, Lynch will have to run on his record. That's fair enough.
