Voters in Massachusetts' neighboring states will have to decide on some big races this election cycle.
In New Hampshire, there is a tight governor's race and a historic contest for a battleground seat in the state's 1st Congressional District. Republican Gov. Chris Sununu is seeking reelection in a state where incumbent governors typically have been able to secure their second terms. But this year is a little different, with the latest polls showing him and his Democratic challenger, Molly Kelly, tied at 49 percent.
With incumbent Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter retiring from her seat in New Hampshire's 1st district, the state has an opportunity to make history with whomever it elects as her successor. Republican Eddie Edwards would be the state's first African-American congressman, while Democrat Chris Pappas would be its first openly gay congressman.
In Rhode Island, though there are six candidates vying for the office of governor, the race is considered to be a three-way contest between Democratic incumbent Gina Raimondo, Republican challenger Allan Fung and independent challenger Joe Trillo.
