Democratic Field Winnows in NH’s 2nd District

Democratic former state Sen. Mark Fernald has dropped out of New Hampshire’s 2nd District race, citing family concerns.

“The demands of the race have overcome my attempts to balance family, work, and politics,” Fernald wrote Wednesday in a message to supporters.

Fernald’s exit is welcome news for the Democrats remaining in the open seat race, including lawyer and lobbyist Ann McLane Kuster, the top fundraiser in the race, according to reports filed through June 30.
