Fellow flinty folks from New Hampshire you should be proud of yourself today.  Last night New Hampshire, the bastion of red in New England, went for democrats in a big way.  

We now have the first all female delegation in US history and a female governor for the second time.  We rejected governor Romney who established a residency here to flatter his way to a primary victory and an electoral win.  (I saw that play as cynical months ago so I suspect others did as well.)  Hopefully we also dispatched our unfortunate  image as a white man’s state, not a mostly harmless, quaint lily-white man, but a grumpy, angry white man’s state.  But with our clear dismissal of the “step and fetch” words and tone of John Sununu our former governor the state is a better place.

Way to go Granite state.  We demonstrated when a full electorate votes here in NH, red America loses another sanctuary.    

Thu Nov 08, 2012 at 11:29 AM PT: "Buoyed by big wins at the top of the ticket New Hampshire Democrats have reclaimed the majority in the New Hampshire House and potentially could even control the State Senate, two accomplishments unthinkable even days ago."

That's right two days ago when I wrote my diary about the pride I had the citizens of New Hampshire. I heard just the opposite about the state legislature--the house here remained red with another grumpy White man Bill O'Brien at the helm. Since then, I heard that Democrats control the House of Representatives. In our two chambered legislature called the General Court, we have the house and we may have even won the Senate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
