Duffy Daughtery

Larry Enman, a Democrat from Errol, has beaten Republican incumbent Duffy Daugherty in Coos District 1 by 20 votes, according to a final tally by the Associated Press.

In a telephone interview Daugherty said he did not intend to seek a recount, describing the statewide election as a sweep.

"The state is going to hell in a hand basket and I'm not going to fight it," he said.

With all 10 precincts counted Enman had 1,158 votes compared to 1,138 for Daugherty.

Official figures from the Secretary of State are not yet available.

Three representatives from the North Country voted not to kill House Bill 1264 which would have allowed “an individual to choose not to provide accommodations, goods, or services for a marriage if doing so would violate his or her conscience or religious faith.”

It was proposed by Rep. Jerry Bergevin, a Republican from Hillsborough.
