New Hampshire electors give 4 votes to Clinton

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Democrat Hillary Clinton has officially captured all four of New Hampshire’s electoral votes.

The state’s four Electoral College members voted for Clinton on Monday as electors gathered nationwide. Republican President-elect Donald Trump needs 270 votes to win. He is expected to earn 306 based on states he won in November.

New Hampshire’s electors are Dudley Dudley, the first female executive councilor; Terie Norelli, the first female Democratic speaker of the House; Bev Hollingworth, the first Democratic female Senate president; and returning U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, the first woman New Hampshire sent to Congress.

Each praised Clinton and noted she won the popular vote. Norelli says the campaign proved sexism “is alive and well” in America.
