republican chris sununu will take over the corner office. he narrowly defeated colin van ostern for governor. senator kelly ayotte is leading her race for re-election, but the gap is small between ayotte and her democratic challenger, governor maggie hassan. about 1500 votes at this point. in the first congressional district, carol shea-porter has narrowly defeated incumbent frank guinta. she now retakes the seat she lost two years ago. erin: the second congressional district was the first race to be declared in new hampshire, with annie kustecl victory just before 1:00 this morning. sean: and here to break down some of these races, a familiar face, former political director scott spradling. a lot of folks went to bed not knowing what is going to happen. were they surprised? scott: absolutely. a lot of the battleground states and new hampshire polls suggested a very different outcome than what we saw. the big question is, what
group of voters that supported republican candidates that did not participate in polls, that did not answer the phone, lunch pail voters that showed up in big numbers yesterday and ended up shocking the world. erin: and of course he is the president-elect, but in new hampshire we have not declared a winner. there is only 300 votes separating the two. scott: it is remarkable watching how razor thin the is between republicans and democrats, between clinton and trump, twin payouts and ayotte and hassan. we see republicans controlling every aspect of state politics, but it looks possible all four of are members of congress will be democrats. sean: that is the big headline. the senate race is separated by 1500 votes. what happens now? scott: we wait for secretary of state bill gardner to give us official final numbers. there are a few holes, but significantly, as we wait is he
results. we do not have them yet. we are also looking for strong republican towns like litchfield and pittsfield that are strong republican locations in the state that always turn out gop votes. if kelly has a mildly going in, but she has no keene numbers, this could tighten before us is over. i think we are headed for a recount. sean:
