Maggie Hassan

Senate - Challenger

Two-term New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan announced her bid for the United States Senate in October, 2015. On Election Day, Hassan will face off against first-term Senator Kelly Ayotte in a race that is set to be one of the most competitive in the country. Hassan previously served in the New Hampshire State Senate, representing District 23 from 2004 to 2010. During her time in office, she served as Majority Leader, president pro tempore, and assistant Democratic whip. Before entering public service, Hassan was Information Officer for the Massachusetts Department of Social Services from 1980 to 1982. Governor Hassan identifies closely with the core values of J Street and pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans. She believes Israel and the United States have an unshakeable alliance built on shared values and is committed to maintaining Israel’s qualitative military edge. Hassan firmly believes that the only way to secure enduring peace and prosperity for Israel is through bilateral negotiations toward a two state solution. Hassan also supported the JCPOA. JStreetPAC is very excited to endorse the Governor in the New Hampshire Senate race in 2016.
