Levi Sanders Swamped In New Hampshire Primary
Levi Sanders lost badly in a Democratic congressional primary in New Hampshire.
The son of liberal firebrand Sen. Bernie Sanders badly trailed two frontrunners in the primary to fill the first district’s seat that was left open when incumbent Carol Shea=Porter opted not to seek reelection.
Sanders, who couldn’t even lock up his famous dad’s endorsement, had just 2% of the vote with most precincts counted.
Chris Pappas, the scion of a famed Granite State political dynasty, was romping to victory with about 45% of the votes, compared to 30% for Maura Sullivan, in what was anticipated to be a much closer race.
Pappas, who is gay, will be a heavy favorite to win the swing seat as Republicans are staring at losing seats across the country in the midterm elections.
