Two of the five current executive councilors - Chris Sununu and Colin Van Ostern - find themselves in a battle for the governor's chair. That leaves two open races and three incumbents vying for re-election. The body approves all state contracts over $25,000, they judges and commissioners and they oversee key transportation issues.
Republicans currently hold 13 of the state Senate's 24 seats. The District 8 seat previously held by Republican Jerry Little has been vacant since Little's appointment as banking commissioner. Democrats are confident they can cut into that margin on Nov. 8, and perhaps even take control of the chamber.
Republicans currently hold 236 of the 400 seats heading into the Nov. 8 election. Democrats are hopeful that they can retake the House from Republicans. If they do, former House Speaker Steve Schurtleff of Concord has said he will once again vie for the position. Current Speaker Shawn Jasper, a Republican from Hudson, has said he hopes to keep his post if Republicans hold their majority.
