NDRC Statement on New Hampshire House Passage of GOP’s Congressional Map

May 5, 2022

Washington, D.C. — Today, the Republican-led New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a congressional map that is an obvious partisan gerrymander. Rather than keeping the state’s two congressional districts similar to how they have been drawn for the past 140 years, which has allowed more competition between both parties, New Hampshire Republicans drew a first district that unnaturally favors their party.

“New Hampshire Republicans are ignoring the state’s century-long tradition of competition for their own partisan gain,” said Liz Wester, the NDRC’s States and Advocacy Director. “Even Governor Sununu said this map does not meet that minimum standard. Should this map make it to his desk, he should veto it.”
