Bob Backus concedes district 16 state senate race
MANCHESTER- Bob Backus has officially conceded his campaign for the District 16 State Senate seat.
"I've called Sen. Gatsas to congratulate him on both his campaign and his re-election. This has been an amazing election year and I have been honored to campaign across District 16.
I could not be prouder of the campaign that we've run. We've burned the midnight oil, knocked on thousands of doors and made countless phone calls. I am grateful to my campaign staff and the host of volunteers who worked tirelessly to get our message out to the voters.
This campaign has been about people, about making a difference for New Hampshire families. Families across New Hampshire are concerned about affordable healthcare, quality education, and maintaining their economic security. Gov. John Lynch and the Democratic majority achieved great success in the last session and I have no doubt that they will continue to work for the working families of New Hampshire" said Bob Backus.
