Lawrence wins in 2nd Congressional district

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — Former state Rep. Jim Lawrence will challenge Democratic U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster after winning his party's primary in New Hampshire's 2nd Congressional District.

Lawrence defeated state Rep. Jack Flanagan and five others in Tuesday's GOP primary. Kuster, who has represented the district for two terms, was unopposed on the Democratic side.

Lawrence, who lives in Hudson, is a U.S. Air Force veteran who now runs construction consulting firm. He campaigned on a theme of cutting waste in Washington, reducing bureaucracy and returning power to the people.

This was Lawrence's second run for Congress. He finished third in the 2014 primary.
