CONCORD, N.H — Democratic U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster of New Hampshire has won re-election after beating Republican state lawmaker Steve Negron.
Kuster was elected Tuesday to a fourth term in the 2nd District, which covers the northern and western parts of the state. Kuster was first elected in 2012.
Among her top issues are fighting sexual violence and supporting veterans and seniors. Kuster's campaign priorities include protecting Social Security and Medicare from efforts by Republicans cuts and support renewable energy.
Negron, a state lawmaker, argued that Medicare should be run by states and that the opioid crisis should be fought locally. The grandson of a Mexican immigrant, Negron also supports building a wall to stem illegal immigration.
