Hassan Accepts Democratic Nomination

Democrat Maggie Hassan won the Democratic nomination for Governor at the Puritan Conference Center in Manchester last night. She says she’s ready to face Ovide Lamontagne, whom she called “the tea party favorite.”

Hassan brought up issues from  payday loans, to education and womens’ health:

Under my opponent’s version of live free or die, abortion would be illegal, even for the victims of rape or incest, and women and their doctors would be treated as criminals.

Hassan continued with the refrain, "that's the tea party way." She also criticized the legislature’s recent budget cuts, especially to education.
