A former executive director of the New Hampshire Republican Party, who also served in the Trump administration, wants to represent the state's 1st Congressional District in Washington.

Matt Mowers, 30, lives in Bedford and works as a consultant.

Speaking on the Jack Heath radio show Tuesday, Mowers said incumbent Democrat Chris Pappas promised to be an independent voice for New Hampshire, but he claims Pappas has voted in near lockstep with his party’s left wing.

“And he’s representing New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District. This isn’t the Bronx, this isn’t San Francisco.”

Mowers, who served as a political aide to former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie before moving to New Hampshire in 2014, said he’d welcome Trump’s backing in this race. Mowers joins Seabrook state Rep. William Fowler in the district's GOP primary.
