    STATE TIDBITS

    State Capital: Concord State Nickname: Granite State For a thumbnail sketch of New Hampshire politics, one need only look at the license plates, emblazoned with the motto "Live Free or Die." In true libertarian fashion, New Hampshire imposes neither income nor sales tax on its residents. Not surprisingly, the GOP, which talks about low taxes, smaller government and free enterprise, has dominated politics here for most of the century. Since 1920, in presidential years, New Hampshire has always had the first in the nation primary. Delegates were not actually chosen until 1952. Since 1952 (and the official placement of the first-in-the-nation primary), to win the presidency a candidate has had to win the New Hampshire primary. The only exception to this was Bill Clinton in 1992 (taking second place to Paul Tsongas). While the governor is a Democrat, the entire congressional delegation is Republican. Gov. Jeanne Shaheen, one of three current women governors, is seeking her second term.
