Neil Levesque talked about New Hampshire’s role as a “swing” state in the 2012 presidential election, and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. Other topics included the top 2012 campaign issues in the state, the state’s political history and demographics, and the gubernatorial race between Maggie Hassan (D) and Ovide Lamontagne (R).

“Swing” states are those in which either both major political parties have a strong chance of winning a state’s electoral college votes. As a result both Republican and Democrats campaign more heavily in those states because they represent the best chances to gain electoral votes. 

This was part eight of a “Washington Journal” series on the ten “swing” or “battleground” states in the 2012 election: Florida, Nevada, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Ohio.

Nancy Calo read the latest headline news from C-SPAN Radio. close
