Recapping Tuesday's Primaries in New Hampshire

AllSides Summary

Retired Army Brigadier General Don Bolduc overcame other primary candidates to win the New Hampshire Republican Senate nomination in Tuesday's primaries.

Bolduc, a staunch conservative, defeated the more moderate state Sen. Chuck Morse, who was favored to win. In November, Bolduc will face Sen. Maggie Hassan (D), who won by only one-tenth of one point in 2016. The Senate race is expected to be one of the most competitive this year, as Democrats battle to maintain their majority in the Senate and Republicans attempt to regain control. Bolduc will now bid for the endorsement of former President Donald Trump, who did not endorse a candidate during the New Hampshire Senate primary.

Meanwhile, Gov. Chris Sununu won the Republican party's nomination for another term. He is favored to win against Democrat Tom Sherman, who ran unopposed on Tuesday.

Many right-rated news sources point out that Republican primary voters in moderate or Democrat-leaning states such as Maryland and Massachusetts have similarly chosen conservative candidates, and that a number of Republicans think President Joe Biden's drag on his party will be a bigger factor in November than whether Republican candidates are Trump loyalists or moderate. Some left-rated sources, conversely, highlighted speculation that some Republican are worried that their chances of winning the Senate in November have been hurt by the nomination of Trump-aligned candidates.
