The Race for Congressional District 2: The Candidates, The Issues, and a Spotlight on Veterans


We take a break from our Race for the 1st series to look at the candidates for Congressional District 2. Annie Kuster (D), the incumbent, will be challenged by Steve Negron, a State Representative from Nashua, VA whistleblower and physician Dr. Stewart Levenson of Hopkinton, and Captain Lynne Blankenbeker, who recently retired from a career as a military nurse and lives in Concord. Political reporter Paul Steinhauser joins us to discuss the race.
