In our latest ratings of the New Hampshire General Court, the new Democratic majority would’ve implemented their entire agenda if it weren’t for Governor Sununu leading a historic veto campaign and conservatives upping their game.
The American Conservative Union Foundation conducts an annual, in-depth analysis to rate all 8,000 lawmakers in America, revealing their positions on a wide variety of issues directly affecting our communities and families.
In 2018, New Hampshire Republicans lost trifecta control of state government, with the Democrats flipping both chambers of the legislature and leading to a worse overall rating for the legislature as a whole.
The state’s overall score fell by nine points (from 47.75% to 38.30%).
However, Republicans improved their average score by fourteen points (from 77.69% to 91.87%) by upholding fifty of Governor Sununu’s vetoes.
We want New Hampshire to start moving in the right direction, and we need your help.

Seven New Hampshire’s Conservative Lawmakers Stood up to New Democratic Majority
Alexandria, VA—New Hampshire’s state lawmakers would have imposed a slew of new radical left legislation in the 2019 session, if not for Governor Sununu and the renewed commitment to conservative governance from New Hampshire Republicans, according to the just-released ratings of the 2019 session published by The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF), host of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
While the new Democratic majority in the General Court qualified as one of the country’s most liberal caucuses in the country (1.63% average score), Republican lawmakers stopped 50 veto override efforts and improved their average conservative score by 14 points (from 77.69% to 91.87%).

“Thanks to Governor Sununu’s leadership and a renewed commitment from conservative lawmakers, the new leftist majority in the General Court failed to impose much of their radical agenda,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “While the Left continues their failed experiments with ‘democratic’ socialism, we stand with New Hampshire’s conservative leaders in defending opportunities for Granite Staters to succeed.”
ACUF’s Ratings of Congress and Ratings of the States are initiatives of ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA). These ratings are designed to reflect how over 8,000 elected officials across the nation view the role of government while illustrating the differences between chambers of the legislature and revealing lawmakers’ positions on a wide variety of issues that directly affect citizens.
ACU Foundation reviewed each piece of legislation voted on in both chambers of the legislature to produce average scores of each chamber as well as individual scores for each sitting member.
