CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Members of New Hampshire’s Congressional delegation say the U.S. can’t turn away from the crisis in Syria, but the country needs a coherent strategy to bring peace. The United States, France and Britain fired military strikes on Saturday intended to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad for the alleged use of chemical weapons. New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen says Assad’s regime’s “brutality cannot go unanswered.” She says she remains “adamant” President Donald Trump’s administration needs to develop a comprehensive strategy for ending the Syrian civil war. Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan calls the allied air strikes “appropriate,” but adds that she’s concerned about Trump’s “erratic foreign policy.” Democratic U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster says the strikes “appear to be a proportional response.” Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter says the U.S. “needs … [Read more...] about New Hampshire delegation says U.S. needs coherent strategy in Syria
HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — A bear whose life was spared last spring by the governor has returned with four new cubs to the college town where she has feasted for the last few years. The state’s Fish and Game Department decided in May to euthanize the mother black bear and three yearlings after repeated problems with them feeding from trash and bird feeders culminated with two of them entering a home near Dartmouth College, in Hanover. Officials argued the plan to euthanize the bears was necessary because the bears were no longer afraid of humans and likely would find new neighborhoods to visit if moved. But Republican Gov. Chris Sununu, after public outcry to save the bears, ordered the bears relocated instead. The mother bear wasn’t trapped, however, because she left Hanover to mate. As predicted, she reappeared in late August and again more recently with four cubs born this year. New Hampshire’s bear project leader, Andrew Timmins, said the plan is to move the … [Read more...] about Foraging bear spared by New Hampshire governor returns to town with 4 cubs

But if 2016 proved anything, it's that experienced New Hampshire political hands on either side of the aisle can't guarantee success for anyone in the primary. Most of the state's political establishment backed Hillary Clinton in the primary, while the more experienced Republicans here backed a combination of candidates, including Chris Christie, Kasich, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump still handily won their respective contests. "2020 is going to be interesting because in 2016, allof the insiders were able to deliver absolutely nothing," acknowledged Jeff Woodburn, New Hampshire’s Democratic state Senate minority leader. "We were so wrong and so ineffective." Like almost all Democrats in the state, Woodburn sees the upcoming contest as "absolutely wide open." New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley, whose job is to stay neutral in the primaries, acknowledged that he's been speaking to a number of potential Democratic presidential candidates … [Read more...] about In New Hampshire, the 2020 presidential race is already well underway

This much he pointed out, twice, before anyone had a chance to wonder why he was back.“Wow!” he called out, stepping into the Red Arrow Diner on Tuesday for an unannounced stop, emitting the kind of surprise that only a politician can summon over three dozen people eating lunch. “It was just this crowded the last time.”Mr. Kasich sidled up beside the counter, squatting to greet a young customer, Sophia Bauer, whose name he seemed to hear as “Sylvia.”“How old are you?” he asked. “Five? Are you going to be in first grade? Do you have a dog? Oh, really?” Soon, Sophia was being tickled by the two-term Republican governor of Ohio.
