Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in New Hampshire

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of New Hampshire scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.

Controversies

2010 resignation

Horrigan resigned from the New Hampshire House of Representatives on August 12, 2010, following remarks he made on Facebook concerning Sarah Palin's death. He sent a letter of resignation to Speaker of the House Terie Norelli and apologized for his "thoughtless remarks."[10]

Horrigan was replying to a comment by Democratic candidate for New Hampshire House Keith Halloran. On a post about the plane crash in Alaska that killed former Senator Ted Stevens, Halloran wrote, "Just wish Sarah and Levy were on board." Horrigan went on to reply, "Well a dead Palin wd be even more dangerous than a live one...she is all about her myth & if she was dead she cldn't commit any more gaffes."[11]

Ryan Williams, spokesman for the New Hampshire Republican Party, said the comment was "a really callous, sick, twisted political analysis from a sitting state representative. Why are New Hampshire Democrats so obsessed with Sarah Palin dying? I don't know any normal people who spend their time discussing the death of their political rivals."[12]

On August 19, 2010, Horrigan sent a letter to Speaker of the House Terie Norelli, rescinding his August 12 resignation. However, Norelli's position was that because Horrigan's resignation became official the moment she accepted it, the resignation could not be rescinded. Immediately after the decision, Horrigan resumed his campaign and won election on November 2, 2010.[13]
