Thumbnail image for Does Walt Havenstein Have A Residency Problem?  – Probably Not.

Democrats are questioning Walter Havenstein’s residency because they see him as a threat to Governor Hassan.  Republicans are questioning it because they do not want a primary challenger (and they want Andrew to win/run unopposed) or maybe they think the Dems may be able to effectively sew doubt should Havenstein win the primary.  And yes, […]
