Jon Morgan, Maura Sullivan to Chair New Hampshire Democratic State Convention

Virtual Convention Set for May 9th, 2020

Concord, N.H. - Senator Jon Morgan and Maura Sullivan will chair the Democratic State Convention - set to be held virtually on May 9th, 2020 - announced the New Hampshire Democratic Party today. You can view the entire State Convention leadership team here.

To prioritize the health and safety of Granite Staters, last month the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s Executive Committee unanimously voted to adapt the New Hampshire Democratic State Convention, originally set to be held in person, to a first-of-its-kind virtual event.

“While COVID-19 may have changed how Granite State Democrats gather, it has not at all dampened Democrats' enthusiasm,” said Ray Buckley, chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party.

The virtual New Hampshire Democratic state convention will feature:

  • A Facebook Live address from Chairman Buckley to state Democrats to discuss what's at stake in 2020, and what Granite Staters can do from home right now to help elect Democrats

  • Video messages from Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Senator Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Annie Kuster, Congressman Chris Pappas, the Democratic gubernatorial candidates, Senate President Donna Soucy, House Speaker Steve Shurtleff, our executive councilors and candidates for the executive council, and other top New Hampshire Democrats

  • And the Convention will kick off virtual delegate voting on resolutions, the adoption of the party's platform, and nominees for the party’s four electors who will cast their electoral votes for Joe Biden after he wins New Hampshire in November.

“We know how much is at stake in 2020 from health care to the environment to women's rights, and that's why we're continuing to get together - virtually - and do everything we can to elect Joe Biden, re-elect Senator Shaheen, Congresswoman Kuster, and Congressman Pappas, put a Democrat in the corner office, and grow our majorities in the legislature and on the executive council,” said Buckley.
