Bradley defeated former judge Bud Martin, a Democrat, in the special election to fill the vacancy in the Senate's 3rd District. Former senator Bill Denley, a Republican, resigned from the seat after he was charged with drunken driving in February.
Unofficial returns had Bradley with 61 percent of the vote.
Despite Bradley's win, Democrats retain a 14-10 edge in the New Hampshire Senate.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
