Aaron Gill for State Rep campaign 'Most Essential' nationwide says DLCC

Deering, NH - October 11, 2012 - The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) today named Aaron Gill's campaign for State Representative for New Hampshire's Hillsborough County District 39, covering Deering, Goffstown and Weare as one of the country's 60 most essential state house races.

"This is incredibly exciting," said Gill after hearing the news. "The DLCC chose our race because the District 39 voters have such a clear choice this November."

He added, "The national implications are clear. Can a Democrat win with a traditional Republican electorate when the choice is between an ideological Libertarian running as a Republican, and a commonsense moderate?"

Mr. Gill, a Democrat, is running against Mark Warden, who moved to New Hampshire in 2007 from Nevada as part of the Free State Project. Mr. Warden won his seat in 2010 as a Republican.

Status: Republican Incumbent

Why this Race Matters: Unlike the New Hampshire House's many multi-member House races, Hillsborough District 39 is a one-on-one matchup featuring Democratic community banker and Deering Conservation Commission officer Aaron Gill, who faces an incumbent Republican who moved to the state as part of the so-called Free State Project, which encourages Libertarians to move to New Hampshire in order to remake that state's government in the image of Libertarian Party ideology. (The project targets New Hampshire, specifically, because of its relatively small electorate.) The outcome of this race could show whether conservative-leaning districts like this one are "in play" for New Hampshire Democrats, as well as whether the Free State Project's unique brand of conservatism has staying power among normal New Hampshire voters.


Aaron Gill, a middle class advocate, chose to run for state representative to return the traditional New Hampshire values of decency, common sense, and compromise to Concord. Mr. Gill, 36, is a small business loan underwriter and a member of the Deering Conservation Commission. He owns a home in Deering with his husband Rob Girard.

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) works to win state legislative seats and chambers for Democrats. Since its inception in 1994, DLCC has been an integral part of the success that Democrats have had winning at the legislative level and has worked to protect and pick up legislative chambers and seats in states across the country.
