Dem Rep Announces She Won't Seek Reelection in New Hampshire Swing District

Dem Rep Announces She Won't Seek Reelection in New Hampshire Swing District”

New Hampshire's Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan also praised Shea-Porter's service. Senate Foreign Relations Committee has approved a resolution for a strike in Syria.

U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter announced in a news release today that she will not vie for a fifth term representing New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District, which covers much of the eastern part of the state. Shea-Porter has served four terms since 2007, but lost the office twice in that span.

"This has been a very hard decision, given how much I have enjoyed serving [the people of New Hampshire] in the House and the fact that the 2018 election is shaping up to be like 2006, when I was first elected, an important time when Congress changed political leadership and was able to move America forward", Shea-Porter said.

New Hampshire's first congressional district has changed hands repeatedly in recent years and is one of the closest swing districts in the country, CNN reported. Her decision is a political bombshell with national implications. So far, 19 Republicans and 10 Democrats have announced they'll retire or run for other offices in 2018. To win back the House of Representatives, Democrats will have to gain 24 seats, and Shea-Porter's departure complicates that picture. Andy Sanborn (R) is squaring off against former local police chief Eddie Edwards (R) in the primary. National Republicans said they already saw the district as one of their top pickup opportunities in the 2018 midterm cycle.

A long list of Democrats could emerge as contenders for the seat, though Shea-Porter's retirement came as a surprise. Shea-Porter's district, New Hampshire's 1st, was considered to be a highly competitive district and was one of the few districts to be won by both a Democrat representative and Donald Trump in the presidential election.

"There is no doubt that Democrats will hold this seat, and we look forward to competing against whomever Steve Bannon nominates", DCCC spokeswoman Meredith Kelly said in a statement, referring to Trump's former chief strategist.
