|Virgin Island home of NH Speaker Bill O'Brien.|

plot ways to destroy New Hampshire's middle class.
O'Brien has been using all kinds of legislative shenanigans to override Lynch's veto. Right now, he's waiting for a fall session to call for an override vote, when he probably thinks he'll have a better chance of getting the two-thirds majority he needs.
He should think again. Earlier this week, a union firefighter won a Republican special primary election. Writes the Union Leader:
The choice of Kevin Janvrin, a veteran Seabrook firefighter, is likely to dampen GOP efforts to override Gov. John Lynch’s veto of the right-to-work bill. Janvrin defeated Louis Gargiulo of Hampton Falls, who had the support of former state GOP chairman John Sununu, Congressman Frank Guinta, former gubernatorial candidates John Stephen and Ovide Lamontagne and others.
Janvrin was well supported by union groups inside and outside the state. He will face Democrat Ryan Mahoney of South Hampton in a September general election.
