New Hampshire hosts the first presidential primary, and any politician’s visit is viewed as testing the waters for a White House run On a wintry night last week Ohio’s Republican governor John Kasich took to the stage in a theatre in New Hampshire’s largest city as a snowstorm churned its way toward town. He quickly abandoned the podium to speak to the audience from the ground, at their level and out of the spotlight that had been shining. The governor lauded the important work done by journalists across the world to hold the rich and powerful accountable while also attacking the sitting president and speaking about the need to unify as a nation.

19h The Democratic blue wave was real
The Guardian
Midterm elections proved that Republicans have only a tenuous hold over the coalition that propelled Trump to the White House in 2016 As the returns poured in on the night of last week’s midterm elections, a narrative swiftly began to take shape: Although Democrats succeeded in retaking the House of Representatives from Republican control, the vaunted ‘blue wave’ had failed to materialize. But just over a week later, the assessment has evolved just as rapidly amid a series of gains by Democrats in contests that on election night were too close to call. Democrats have now picked up 34 seats in the House – a tally that may inch closer to 40 with a number of results still outstanding.
