Election 2008

Blankenbeker ran unsuccessfully for the New Hampshire House of Representatives in 2008. She ran for election from District 11 of Merrimack County, receiving 2,703 votes. Blankenbeker failed to win a seat in the 2008 election because District 11 has five seats, and Blankenbeker did not finish as one of the top five finishers in the election.[5]
