Rep. Carol Shea-Porter
Bio: Carol Shea-Porter is the first woman elected to national office in the history of New Hampshire. She was originally active in local politics in New Hampshire, serving as chair of the Rochester City Democrats and Strafford County coordinator for state representative races. During the 2004 Presidential primary, she volunteered and then worked for General Wesley Clark. Carol decided to run for Congress after serving for over a month as a volunteer in Katrina-ravaged New Orleans. The voters of New Hampshire listened to her pledge to â€œrepresent the other 99% of usâ€ and built a district-wide grassroots network that elected New Hampshireâ€™s first Congresswoman, astonishing state and national pundits. Carol was sworn into office on January 4, 2007. She is a member of the House Armed Services Committee and the Committee on Education and Labor.
