Voters in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District have less than a week to choose from the pack of candidates running to replace retiring Rep. Carol Shea-Porter.

As with any election, candidates are racing around the state to knock on doors and shake as many hands as possible. But this mad dash to the finish is especially frantic for the 11 Democrats running for the seat, as the sheer number of candidates might cause results to split in interesting ways.

With six weeks to go until the primary, Congresswoman Annie Kuster’s campaign account is six times the size of the three Republicans who’ve lining up to challenge her — combined.

U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan is the latest high-profile Democrat to back Molly Kelly in her bid to unseat Governor Chris Sununu.

According to Hassan , Kelly's record in the state senate -- where Kelly served five terms -- and her life story -- Kelly put herself through school while raising three children as a single mother -- prove she understands the challenges faced by New Hampshire families.
