Democrat Ann McLane Kuster , a lawyer and lobbyist, has announced her candidacy for New Hampshire’s 2nd District race, positioning herself as a Washington outsider.

“I’m an activist, not a career politician. I think great ideas start right here in New Hampshire, not in Washington,” Kuster said in her video announcement . Her announcement made her the first major Democrat to enter the race to succeed Democratic Rep. Paul W. Hodes , who is running for the Senate in 2010.  

Kuster emphasized her commitment to make quality healthcare afforable, protect abortion rights, and increase New Hampshire’s involvement in the alternative energy industry.
