    The DNC Tried to Kill the NH #FITN. Instead, They've Unleashed Chaos

    The DNC Tried to Kill the NH #FITN. Instead, They've Unleashed Chaos

    Is the New Hampshire Democrats' First In The Nation primary dead? Or maybe even, ala Princess Bride, mostly dead? Not even close, says the Boston Globe's James Pindell in the NHJournal podcast.

    Instead of killing the NH primary, the Biden/DNC bombshell has just unleashed chaos across the Democrats' primary map.

    And they've also added rule changes that would force New Hampshire to change more than just its #FITN state law, changes NH voters don't support.

    The real question is why? Two words: "Biden 2024."

    The NHGOP's Midterm Lessons, and China's Rising Threat

    The NHGOP's Midterm Lessons, and China's Rising Threat

    Granite State Republicans expecting a Red Wave in last week's midterms got a Blue Backlash instead. Why? NHJournal Managing Editor Michael Graham offers his take.

    And former Congressman Mike Rogers is trying to get Americans focused on the rising threat China poses to America's interests and values. He's part of Leadership to Ensure the American Dream (LEAD),  a new initiative born out of a time-tested idea: that America is a force for good and that the pursuit of the American Dream is as essential today as it has been at each critical juncture in the development of our nation.

    Running into Rudy Giuliani at Castro's in Manchester -- BONUS PODCAST!

    On Election Day 2022, former NYC Mayor and GOP POTUS candidate Rudy Giuliani stopped by Castro's in Manchester -- one of the great joys of living in the Granite State! He wanted an interview for his radio show, NHJournal wanted one for our podcast, and here is the result.

    The audio isn't terrific, but it's OK and the conversation is a lot of fun. So please enjoy this impromptu podcast, covering everything from favorite cigars to Trump 2024.

    Hassan Debate Debacle, and Gov. Chris Sununu on 2022 -- and Beyond?

    Hassan Debate Debacle, and Gov. Chris Sununu on 2022 -- and Beyond?

    It's a double-barreled edition of the New Hampshire Journal podcast, recorded just minutes after the WMUR-TV debate between U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan and her GOP challenger Gen. Don Bolduc.

    Cliffs Notes version: If it had been a fight, they woulda stopped it, only Hassan didn't show up prepared to fight. Bolduc dominated the debate and moved his improbable bid to defeat an incumbent U.S. Senator one step closer. Radio host Drew Cline of WFEA offers his take on the debate and what he sees as Hassan's fundamental flaw in the 2022 campaign.

    Then an extended conversation with four-term incumbent GOP Gov. Chris Sununu -- about abortion (of course), state government vs federal, how to have fun on the campaign trail, and why he might be the "Tom Brady of NH Politics."

    Or maybe not.

    Senate Debates, Border Security -- and 'Sextober?'

    Senate Debates, Border Security -- and 'Sextober?'

    Come for the rank NH politics punditry, stay for the conversation about "Sextober" at UNH (You should --if you're a New Hampshire taxpayer, you're paying for it!)

    On an eclectic edition of the NHJournal podcast, host Michael Graham talks to Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies about the crisis at the southern border and the Biden administration's role. Is it a winning issue for pro-border-security candidates?

    Then Katelyn Regan, the head of the UNH Students for Life chapter, talks about being a political conservative in one of the most far-Left corners of the state. And she shares the brow-raising details about "Sextober" on the UNH campus, put on by the school's Health and Wellness center.

    And the pod begins with a round of rank punditry from your host.

    America's Most Accurate Pollster on NH Senate Race, GOP Fortunes Nationwide

    America's Most Accurate Pollster on NH Senate Race, GOP Fortunes Nationwide

    Over the past three election cycles, Robert Cahaly of the Trafalgar Group has emerged as the most trusted GOP pollster in America, predicting races -- like Trump's 2016 victory -- nearly everyone else missed. He just dropped a poll from the NH Senate race and he talks to host Michael Graham about the mood of the Granite State electorate (not good) and the prospects that a wild-card candidate like retired Gen. Don Bolduc could beat incumbent Democrat Sen. Maggie Hassan (better than you think.)

    And Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan joins the show to talk about the current state of the GOP and whether there's a path for a moderate governor from a blue state to be a 2024 POTUS contender. He also throws down on Biden's college debt bailout and NH Democratic Party chair Ray Buckley's controversial comments about parents.

    Enjoy!
