CONCORD, NH — Democrat Ann McLane Kuster easily coasted to victory this evening in her primary match against Katrina Swett. On Tuesday night, with 35 percent of precincts reporting, Kuster had won 68 percent to Swett’s 31 percent.
Although the numbers will continue to trickle in, Kuster was euphorious Tuesday night when she greeted supporters in Concord, speaking of her desire for unity and bipartisanship in her November race.
“Voters will have a crystal clear choice in November.”
Kuster congratulated opponent Swett on well-fought race, and expressed her excitement to beat the Republicans in November.
“She is a strong, intelligent, and fearless voice for our state. And I promise you Katrina, I will continue that.”
Kuster will face a Republican opponent in the general election, but at 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, the GOP race was too close to call.
Frontrunner Charlie Bass was locked in the race with opponent Jennifer Horn, with neither side declaring victory or defeat. Bass seemed confident that he would pull off the win, but votes will continue to be tallied into the night.
Check back later on Wednesday for updates on the GOP race, photos from Tuesday, and analysis of the crazy primary night.
