It's still not clear which Republican candidate Maggie Hassan, New Hampshire's incumbent Democratic senator, will face in November.

While Hassan won the Democratic primary on Tuesday, it's still too close to call the Republican race. With an estimated 79 percent of precincts reporting, retired Army Brig. Gen. Don Bolduc leads Chuck Morse, president of the New Hampshire Senate, by 1,632 votes. Bolduc is a staunch conservative who has never held elected office, and campaigned on former President Donald Trump's false claims of election fraud in 2020 and vaccine conspiracy theories, The Associated Press reports.
