“The state Demo­crat­ic Party is present­ing a state elec­tion pan­el with new in­form­a­tion it be­lieves will en­sure that” test-prep ex­ec­ut­ive Shawn O’Con­nor (I) “will not be on the bal­lot for the gen­er­al elec­tion. O’Con­nor … labeled as a ‘frivol­ous at­tack’ the NHDP’s re­quest for re­con­sid­er­a­tion of the state Bal­lot Law Com­mis­sion’s de­cision last week to al­low him to re­main on the bal­lot. He said the party is des­per­ate to keep him off.”

O’Con­nor in­sisted he is not a spoil­er can­did­ate, say­ing he will do more than “skim votes” from former Rep. Car­ol Shea-Port­er (D). (WMUR)
