The visit marked the first time Flake has been to New Hampshire — home to the first-in-the-nation presidential primary — since campaigning there with Arizona Senator John McCain in 2008. Often potential presidential candidates visit the state and play coy about their reasons for being there. Not Flake. His appearance at the Politics and Eggs breakfast, a must-stop for all potential presidential candidates, and his speech ripping Trump were not … [Read more...] about In N.H., Senator Jeff Flake rips Trump for ‘propaganda-fueled’ conservatism
Chris Morris - Globe staff February 15, 2018 8:46 pm Brianna Rolfs was born and raised in Pelham, N.H, just like her father. And when she and her husband were looking to buy a home, they bought the 1760s house she grew up in. And when in 2016 it came time to start a business, she followed in her father’s footsteps once again, reopening Hammar’s Art Studio & Cultural Center, which her father and grandfather had operated together for decades under the name Hammar & Sons Inc., making signs, selling art supplies, and framing pictures, and where she had worked as a teenager.

But the truth is, whatever other challenges await him, Levi Sanders won’t likely be hampered by the fact that he’s part of a celebrated political family. In New Hampshire, that’s par for the course.Sanders, 48, lives in Claremont, N.H. — which is actually in the state’s Second District, though residency isn’t required to run. Sanders is a Democrat and is running for the seat now held by US Representative Carol Shea-Porter, who does not plan to run for re-election.Sanders … [Read more...] about In N.H., politics is a family business
