Bradley Headed to Rematch With Shea-Porter in N.H.

Former Rep. Jeb Bradley (R-N.H.) will once again face the woman who took his seat from him in an upset two years ago, now-Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-N.H.).

The New Hampshire Union Leader reported Tuesday night that Bradley had defeated his GOP primary opponent, former state Health Commissioner John Stephen, by about 850 votes. Stephen, who had 12,550 votes, reportedly conceded to Bradley, who had 13,396 votes, with 73 percent of precincts reporting.

Shea-Porter upset Bradley in 2006, surprising Granite State and national political observers by the strength of her low-budget campaign. The 1st district had traditionally voted Republican, though, giving the GOP hope of taking the seat back in 2008.
