Join our live chat with NH Sen. Candidate Paul Hodes

Tonight, from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM, Pam’s House Blend, Good As You, Open Left, Bilerico and AMERICAblog are hosting a live chat with Paul Hodes, the Democrat running for Senate in New Hampshire. This is the first of several chats we’ll be hosting over the next several weeks with pro-equality candidates.

Earlier today, we learned that NH Republicans (barely) chose Kelly Ayotte as their nominee. She was endorsed by Sarah Palin, which says a lot. Ayotte is opposed to marriage equality in a state that allows same-sex marriage — and she’s even opposed to gay adoptions. Ayotte is extreme.

Fortunately, Hodes is in the race — and can win. He’s pro-marriage equality and will stand up for progressive values. I met Paul at Netroots Nation and was very impressed. I think the people co-hosting felt the same way.

So, join the chat. Ask questions. And, help Hodes win. His website is here. His ActBlue page is here.
