New Hampshire’s top races too close to call

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — From the presidential race on down, New Hampshire’s elections remain too close to call.

As midnight neared, no winners had emerged in the presidential race between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, and other candidates remained in tight races as well.

In the U.S. Senate race, Republican Kelly Ayotte (AY’-aht) faced a strong challenge from Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan (HAS’-uhn) in a contest that’s among a handful that could help determine control of the Senate.

Republican Chris Sununu and Democrat Colin Van Ostern, meanwhile, are competing to replace Hassan.

New Hampshire’s U.S. House races also are too close to call. The 1st District features Republican incumbent Frank Guinta, Democrat Carol Shea-Porter and independent Shawn O’Connor. In the 2nd District, Republican Jim Lawrence is challenging Democratic U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster.
