Two-term New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan won election in 2016 to serve as New Hampshire’s junior Senator. 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.
