Forum attracts crowd of Democratic 1st District hopefuls
EXETER, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Democratic Party is hosting another forum for the crowded field of candidates seeking the nomination in the 1st Congressional District.
Eleven Democrats will be on the ballot for the Sept. 11 primary, competing for a chance to replace U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, a Democrat who is not seeking re-election. Five Republicans are seeking the GOP nomination.
The Democrats will gather at Exeter High School for a forum Thursday night.
