Governor-elect Maggie Hassan made her first post-election appearance  in downtown Manchester.

Despite the cold weather and late-night election results, Hassan supporters gathered at the Red Arrow Diner in Manchester Wednesday afternoon to congratulate the governor-elect on her victory.

Hassan says she looks forward to governing in the tradition set forth by Governor Lynch, and that she’s eager to work with those across the aisle to improve the state’s schools and economy:

“We’re going to reach out to people, legislators and citizens of all political stripes, to make sure we’re getting the best ideas and the best people together.”

Hassan beat Republican Ovide Lamontagne last night with a convincing 12 point lead.

She is the second female governor to be elected in the state’s history.
