Yup, New Hampshire Is Pretty Hot (political) Sh*t

New Hampshire is a political bellwether (again).

So claims the Cook Report's Jenn Duffy in an article in today's New York Times highlighting the Jeanne Shaheen/John Sununu Senate race:

“It’s probably the best test out there of a political climate being a Republican incumbent’s worst enemy,” said Jennifer Duffy of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. “He does constituent service. He shows up to work. He votes. He brings home the bacon. There are not a lot of inherent things wrong with John Sununu except that he is a Republican.”
Take that 49 other states!

Noted: A real Granite Stater would use a local NH publication to make this same point. Of course, we're not a Granite Stater. We're just a Green Mountain carpetbagger who spent 17 months in NH around and during the '08 Primary.
