GOP committee: We'll flip New Hampshire House

Posted: Updated:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The Republican Legislative Campaign Committee says it has the resources to help flip control of the New Hampshire House of Representatives back to the GOP.

In a conference call Thursday, the RLCC said the committee will be going on the offensive around the country. Republicans currently control 60 of 99 legislative chambers.

New Hampshire is among the group's "Sweet 16" chambers it will focus on ahead of the November election. Currently, there are 213 Democrats, 174 Republicans and 13 vacant seats in the 400-seat House.

There were 100-plus seat swings in 2010, when the House flipped to the GOP, and again 2012 when it switched back.

Julie McClain, a spokeswoman for state Democrats, said the party's slate of candidates will be "extremely successful" in November.
