Race Summary

Rep. Carol Shea-Porter has refused national Democratic money and is trying to run the same kind of race she did in 2006, when she upset Rep. Jeb Bradley (R). No state lurched as heavily left as New Hampshire, and if Shea-Porter is banking her re-election hopes on the same atmosphere she may be disappointed. Her big hope: That Bradley and former state cabinet secretary John Stephen (R) bloodied each other enough during the September 9 primary, which Bradley won 51%-46%.
