NHDP Statement on the Democratic Special Election Victory in Manchester Ward 7

Concord, N.H - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement after tonight's special election in Manchester Ward 7.

"Mary Health's victory tonight is yet another example of New Hampshire voters' rejection of the reckless NHGOP Tea Party ideology and its backward agenda of attacking workers, women, students and seniors, in favor of a Democratic candidate who will work with Governor Hassan to help build a more innovative economy for New Hampshire.  Just as in November 2012, when voters turned out to elect Democrats in across the state, voters in Manchester have sent clear message that they want responsible, commonsense representatives working for them in Concord.
"I want to congratulate Representative-elect Heath on her victory tonight, and I look forward to seeing her sworn in at the State House soon."
