End Citizens United and Let America Vote Announce Slate of New Hampshire Endorsements

Jun 11, 2020

End Citizens United (ECU) and Let America Vote (LAV) today endorsed eight reformers for state-level races in New Hampshire, including State Senator Dan Feltes for Governor. The endorsed candidates are committed to prioritizing reform measures such as strengthening the option to register and vote safely at home, closing the LLC loophole, and eliminating dark money in elections.

“Whether it’s getting Big Money out of politics, ending partisan gerrymandering, or protecting the right to vote, state governments will play a key role in the fight for democracy,” said ECU and LAV President Tiffany Muller. “These candidates are running reform-focused campaigns and they’re committed to changing the status quo in Concord that puts money over people. We’re proud to endorse these reformers, and we look forward to helping them win in November.”

The list of endorsed candidates includes:

  • Dan Feltes (NH-Gov)

  • Bill Bolton (SD-2)

  • David Watters (SD-4)

  • Jeanne Dietsch (SD-9)

  • Melanie Levesque (SD-12)

  • Cindy Rosenwald (SD-13)

  • Jon Morgan (SD-23)

  • Tom Sherman (SD-24)

Both LAV and ECU have been active and engaged in New Hampshire in recent election cycles. ECU’s first-ever U.S. Senate endorsement was Senator Maggie Hassan’s campaign during the 2016 cycle. ECU was also instrumental in helping Congressman Chris Pappas flip NH-01 in 2018, and has endorsed Pappas’ re-election campaign. In August 2019, ECU endorsed Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s re-election campaign. LAV’s grassroots team helped turn both the state House and Senate blue in 2018 by knocking on more than 80,000 doors. New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner credited the induction of Governor Sununu and two other Republican legislators into Let America Vote’s Voter Suppression Hall of Shame for supporting an anti-voting rights bill, House Bill 1264, as one of the factors that helped drive attention to voter suppression in the state and ultimately led to the bill being challenged in the New Hampshire Supreme Court.
