GRANITE STATE PROGRESS PAC STATEMENT ON DEMOCRAT LATHA MANGIPUDI WINNING STATE REP SPECIAL ELECTION IN NASHUA
GSP PAC sent two mailings to voters in district in support of Mangipudi; encourages Reps, Senators to heed Mangipudi’s example on Medicaid expansion
CONCORD, NH – Democrat Latha Mangipudi has won the special election for State Representative in Hillsborough District 35 in New Hampshire by a margin of 59%-41%. Statement from Zandra Rice Hawkins, Director of Granite State Progress and Chair of Granite State Progress PAC:
“Latha Mangipudi is a middle class champion for Granite State families and values and we congratulate her on her resounding election win. This special election outcome is only the latest reminder that New Hampshire voters want leaders who will advocate for families and small businesses in our state and leave partisan politics at the door.”
“Currently elected State Senators and Representatives should keep this in mind this month as they decide whether to extend health care coverage to thousands of lower income Granite Staters and strengthen our economy, or to instead play partisan politics with people’s lives. Mangipudi is the first elected official in New Hampshire to have to address this issue on the campaign trail, and she proved she was listening to voters in her district and paying attention to the overwhelming support from hospitals, medical professionals, and health care advocates when she made a strong and public endorsement of Medicaid expansion in the final days of the campaign.”
“State Rep-elect Latha Mangipudi will be a strong advocate for families and small businesses in our state, and we look forward to working with her.”
Granite State Progress PAC sent two mailers to voters in the district. The first piece informed voters that Pete Silva was part of former Speaker Bill O’Brien’s handpicked destructive leadership team, and listed examples of Silva’s votes against middle class families in New Hampshire. It included a link to Silva’s complete voting record from last session, found at http://www.granitestateprogress.org/legislator/silva.
The second GOTV piece reminded voters of the polling location and times with a simple message.
