Jeanne Shaheen wins in New Hampshire


Eric noted earlier that Republicans were crying foul over a pitch for Jewish support for Jeanne Shaheen, the former New Hampshire governor, in her bid to unseat incumbent U.S. Sen. John Sununu.

Jewish Democrats used Sununu’s alleged differences with pro-Israel groups against him, and the Republican Jewish Coalition said that was hypocritical – Dems have often said Israel should not be used as a wedge issue.

I don’t know if the tactic helped, but it looks like Sununu’s a one-termer; CNN and MSNBC are declaring for Shaheen.
