Bishop did not seek re-election to Rockingham 3 in 2010.


On November 4, 2008, Bishop won re-election to the New Hampshire House of Representatives from the Rockingham 2 District, which sent three representatives to the New Hampshire House of Representatives, by finishing with the highest vote total in the election. Bishop received 2,718 votes. The other winning candidates from District 2 were Kathleen Hoelzel (R) with 2,630 votes and Lawrence Kappler (R) with 2,544 votes. Because the 2008 race in District 2 had three candidates for three available seats, Bishop and the other two winners essentially was unopposed. Additionally, 4 votes went to "others", who were presumably write-in candidates. [4]
