Steve Negron hopeful in November rematch

Republican Steve Negron will once again face-off against Democrat U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster who defeated him in 2018.

Kuster won a fourth term in New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District with 57.5-percent to Negron’s 40-percent, but he believes he can now beat her.

“With me you’re going to get a voice that’s going to take their voice down to Washington,” Negron said in an interview with WMUR-9. “I’ve been through this district now, this is my second go of it. I’m the only one that’s been on the stage with Congresswoman Kuster. She knows that I’m a threat to her this time. She’s come after me about fundraising because she knows I’m the one to beat.”

Negron won this year’s Republican primary with just over 30-thousand votes.

“The hard work doesn’t stop here”, Negron said in a statement. “We need to hit the ground running to bring New Hampshire’s voice back to Washington; defending our small state voice, law and order, and confronting the lies of the Pelosi/Kuster agenda.”

Negron is a retired Air Force officer and a businessman in Nashua. He also served a term in the New Hampshire House. The 59-year old comes from an immigrant family. His grandfather was from Mexico, his grandmother was from Puerto Rico, and Negron even spent a part of his childhood in Spain.

He is campaigning on a platform for reducing health care costs, a strong national defense, and a secure border.

In a statement, Kuster said she would continue to fight to lower prescription drug prices, advocate on behalf of veterans and protect the environment if she is re-elected in November’s general election.

Negron is a former state House member who owns a defense engineering and consulting company in Nashua.
