2020 Candidates Endorsements

These are the 2020 candidates for New Hampshire State Representative and State Senator endorsed by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance. Additional candidates may be added as we evaluate additional inputs.

Endorsements for representatives and senators with an existing legislative record are based on Liberty Ratings scores; endorsements for new candidates for state house and senate are based on our online candidate survey.

Thank you to all the candidates who took the time to complete our online survey, and to the hard-working pro-liberty incumbents running for reelection.

We feel that these candidates are the best choices for New Hampshire voters and worthy of NHLA members’ support. Campaign contributions from the NHLA’s PAC will be sent to these candidates.

The tables below can be sorted. To sort one column at a time, simply click on the up and down arrows in each header. To sort additional columns and keep the original sort in order, hold down the shift key while selecting the up and down arrows in the header.
