The Hiller Instinct: Primary Night
The votes are still being counted, and it looks like there may be a September surprise brewing in New Hampshire...an upset big enough to make national headlines.
And we also have the outline of what's ahead for voters here.
New Hampshire's biggest primary will set the stage for an even bigger contest, which will help decide which party controls the United States Senate.
Republican Ovide Lamontagne--whom the Tea Party supports--is now ahead of Kelly
Ayotte, who was backed by Sarah Palin.
Waiting for the winner is Democrat Paul Hodes, a strong supporter of President Obama.
In Massachusetts, Republican Jeff Perry and Democrat Bill Keating won in the 10th congressional district.
The Republicans would love to steal this seat from the Democrats--and get their vote in the House since 1997--but I'm not convinced they will.
The biggest race in Massachusetts--for governor--wasn't even on the ballot today, as four unchallenged candidates advanced.
Maybe that's why--although this has been a crowded primary campaign--it's also been relatively quiet.
Trust me, it will get a lot louder between now and November.
I’m Andy Hiller, that’s my instinct.
