NHDP - ICYMI: Granite State Forward Ramps Up Grassroots Organizing With Successful Office Openings Across State

Manchester, NH – Heading into the general election season, the New Hampshire Democratic Party's coordinated campaign, Granite State Forward, continues to secure the ground advantage for the upcoming November election with 19 campaign offices currently up and running across the state.

In just the last few weeks, Granite State Forward has been hosting office openings events, headlined by Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan, Congresswomen Annie Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter, and other Democratic leaders, to mark the coordinated campaign's growing statewide grassroots operation as part of its efforts to continue building support for Democratic candidates.

The office openings follow months of training and preparation through the spring and summer, where Granite State Forward has been organizing local volunteers, activists, community leaders and elected officials across the state to go door-to-door, call up their neighbors and friends, and spread our message about what's at stake in the upcoming election.
