Sen. Maggie Hassan faces a minor primary challenge as she seeks a second term.
All eyes will be on the Republican primary, where a large field is competing for the nomination. However, this looks like a two-way contest between Don Bolduc, an Army Special Forces veteran and Chuck Morse, president of the State Senate. Bolduc ran for the state's other Senate seat in 2020, finishing second in the primary with 42% of the vote.
The most recent poll we've seen gives Bolduc a 10 point lead, 33% to 23%, over Morse, with 25% undecided. No other candidate broke double-digits.
While not formally endorsed by the former president, Bolduc has been targeting the Trump wing of the party. Morse has been endorsed by Republican Gov. Chris Sununu and is the favorite of establishment members of the party, who think Bolduc is less electable. Democrats, thinking the same, are spending millions on ads to slam Morse, hoping to get Bolduc across the finish line.
Republican Gov. Chris Sununu is seeking his fourth term. The state is one of only two - neighboring Vermont the other - where the gubernatorial term is two years instead of four. Although he has drawn a few challengers, Sununu is expected to be renominated and is a heavy favorite in the general election.
State Sen. Tom Sherman is unopposed for the Democratic nomination.
These primaries will take place using redistricted boundaries.
Democratic incumbents in both districts are unopposed for renomination. In District 1, Chris Pappas is seeking a 3rd term, while in District 2, Ann Kuster is looking to win her 6th.
Both districts are on the competitive radar for the general election, so the Republican primaries are worth watching.
||The frontrunners in this large field appear to be Matt Mowers, the 2020 nominee, and Karoline Leavitt. The party establishment is split, with both candidates gaining endorsements from GOP leadership. Also seeing notable political support are Gail Huff Brown and Tim Baxter, although they have trailed in polling.
||This appears to be a two-way race between former Hillsborough County Treasurer Bob Burns and Keene Mayor George Hansel. Democrats are spending money to prop up the more conservative Burns, seeing him as the weaker general election candidate.
