It was a big night for Democrats and for women in New Hampshire last night.  Nationally President Barack Obama won a second term over Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.   In the Granite State, Maggie Hassan was voted as our state's new Governor and Carol Shea Porter and Ann McLane Kuster won the seats for the Congressional District 1 and 2 respectively.  In the State House and Senate, there are still some races that need to be settled but it looks like Republican hold majorities in both the State House and Senate. Today we crunch the numbers.
