On Tuesday, New Hampshire state Senate Democratic candidate Melanie Levesque declared victory over Republican incumbent Kevin Avard and issued the following statement:

“I’m incredibly honored to have earned the trust of New Hampshire voters and the opportunity to represent them in the state Senate,” Levesque said. “Thank you to the hardworking volunteers and grassroots supporters who powered this campaign from Rindge to Nashua and believed in the promise we made to put New Hampshire people over politics. This victory also belongs to you.”
