NHPR will have live NPR coverage of the vice presidential debate held this evening at Centre College in Danville, Ky. GOP Rep. Paul Ryan will challenge Vice President Joe Biden in a 90-minute debate on foreign and domestic issues.
Coverage of the debate will begin at 9 p.m., following a special at 8 p.m. from WNYC Radio’s “Swing State Radio Network.”
This year there are nine state senators not returning to their seats. Most of the chairs are being vacated by Republicans, and that’s got Democrats banking on winning some of those seats back. And in district 7, one traditionally red seat is up for grabs.
Former state senator Maggie Hassan has worked hard to cast herself as a politician in the mode of Governor John Lynch – moderate, popular, and willing to work across party lines. Speaking before a crowd of more than 150 people in Concord, the Governor urged a supportive crowd to believe her.
“If we want to continue what we started 8 years ago: bipartisan leadership that is making progress on the issues, that matter most to the people of NH then we need to elect Maggie Hassan as the next governor of the state of N.H.”
