Mowers loses House race in New Hampshire

By David Wildstein, November 04 2020 1:15 am

New Jersey native Matt Mowers appears to have narrowly lost his bid for a congressional seat in New Hampshire.

Freshman Democratic Rep. Chris Pappas leads Mowers by 6,107 votes, 49.8% to 47.8%, with slightly more than 95% of the votes counted.

A Bergen County native, Mowers has been in politics since he was a teenager.  He worked for Gov. Chris Christie before moving to New Hampshire in 2013 to become executive director of the state GOP.  He ran Christie’s Granite State campaign in the 2016 presidential primary and later joined Donald Trump’s campaign.

After a stint as the White House’s political guy at the U.S. Department of State, Mowers has returned to New Hampshire to take on freshman Rep. Chris Pappas in the 1st district.

Mowers has raised nearly $1. 4 million, with $272,490 of that coming from New Jersey. His donors include lots of Christie alumni, including $11,2000 from the former governor and first lady.
