Former President Barack Obama is endorsing 25 fellow Democrats in New Hampshire.

Obama on Monday tweeted a list of candidates he supports around the country. Among the 180 candidates from 20 states were 25 from New Hampshire — including gubernatorial candidate Molly Kelly, U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster and congressional hopeful Chris Pappas.

Nine state senate candidates also made the list, along with 13 candidates for the House.

Senate Democratic Leader Donna Soucy says Obama understands the importance of electing strong leaders at the state level because he served as a state senator in Illinois.
