  • NH News Recap for Feb. 9, 2024: NH Democrats are divided on the northern border

Chris Sununu and state Republicans have been calling for more patrols along the state's northern border with Canada, but New Hampshire Democrats are divided on the issue. And lawmakers are considering a bill that would add certain mental health records to gun background checks.
