BREAKING: extreme anti-abortion bill introduced in New Hampshire

Hey team, have you seen this? This is the exact extremism I'm running for governor to combat.  Let me be extremely clear: if this bill came across my desk as governor, I would veto it immediately - along with any bill that threatened reproductive freedom in New Hampshire.   But if we don't flip this…

Here's our situation

John –  Here's the situation: When Chris Sununu announced his retirement, the Cook Political Report shifted their rating for NH-Gov from "Solid Republican" to "Toss Up." This means that this is the best opportunity for Democrats to FLIP a gubernatorial seat in 2024! Here's the problem: GOP extremist…

Listen, John, if I were Kelly Ayotte right now, I'd be a little scared. Our campaign has been building momentum and we’ve earned endorsements of some of New Hampshire's best: Not only that, but we have the momentum of New Hampshire Democrats behind us!

DeSantis' complacency in gun violence

John – last week, Joyce released a plan to mitigate gun violence. Almost instantly, NRA-backed Ron DeSantis started attacking it.  Why?
