Leavitt will face off against Chris Pappas on November 8.
The Sea Coast Online reported on September 8th about the tight race among many competitors.
In the Sept. 13 primary, five Republicans will be running. Voters have the opportunity to nominate a conservative from the younger generation, such as Tim Baxter, ex-White House aide Karoline Leavitt, or Matt Mowers ex-U.S. State Department official. Matt Mowers was the 2020 contender for the CD 1 seat. During the general election, he lost to Pappas.
Gail Huff Brown is a journalist and entrepreneur who was also running. She is the wife of Scott Brown, an ex-Senator from the United States.
Huff Brown was interviewed by a colleague back in September.
Many Republican establishment members supported Matt Mowers, and they gave their support. Before the pandemic, he was an adviser to the State Department. He was also a former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s advisor.
Despite Leavitt’s fighting style polls from before were consistent with Mowers leading but within the margins.
Leavitt was also a former assistant to Elise Stefanik (Republican House Chair-NY), who received her enthusiastic endorsement along with that of Senator Ted Cruz, Republican-TX).
Tucker Carlson spoke with Leavitt Monday evening about the attacks she was receiving from the GOP Guard, Democrats, and those who thought she would be a weaker candidate to replace NH Rep. Pappas.
The Democrats are smearing me and the Establishment Republicans are spending $5 million dollars against me.
As @TuckerCarlson said tonight, I must be doing something right. New Hampshire – REJECT the Swamp and VOTE on Tuesday! ⬇️🗳 pic.twitter.com/kCIJccyjH2
