At a glance

  • Rep. Chris Pappas (D) has won reelection in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District, fending off a spirited challenge from Republican Karoline Leavitt.
  • The race was one of the closest of the midterm cycle, with Leavitt polling several points ahead of Pappas in the final week. It was also notable due to the age of Leavitt, who at 25 could have the youngest member of the lower chamber in the 118th Congress. The race took place in a perennial swing district that has switched between Republican and Democratic representation five times since 2006.
