District 2. Republican Jeanie Forrester (incumbent; yea on 569) v. Tim Condon
"Forrester, an early opponent of the Northern Pass, fought the project for years over its efforts to employ eminent domain, and remains strongly opposed, calling it 'effectively a big extension cord going through New Hampshire to go to Connecticut and Massachusetts.'
"Condon, on the other hand, has indicated that he backs the project, which calls for running new transmission lines through northern New Hampshire in order to carry Canadian hydropower to southern New England.
“'Energy is the lifeblood of a modern economy,' he wrote in a 2011 blog post about Northern Pass."
