Republican Steve Negron, who lost to Democrat Annie Kuster last year in New Hampshire's 2nd Congressional District election, says he's once again running for the seat for 2020.

Negron, of Nashua, is a former state lawmaker, serving in the House from 2016 to 2018. He served in the Air Force and works in the defense industry.

He defeated six other GOP candidates in the primary election to get his party's nomination.

Negron said Wednesday that Kuster's Democratic allies who now control Congress "continue to ignore the plight of fiscal injury," a reference to the $22 million national debt.

Kuster defeated Negron to win her fourth term. A message seeking comment from her office was referred to Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley, who said Kuster fights "every day" for hardworking families in New Hampshire.
