Democrat Chuck Grassie has been reelected to the New Hampshire House in a special election triggered by a tie vote. Initial results from the November election in Rochester’s Ward 4 showed Republican David Walker defeating Grassie, the incumbent, by one vote, but a recount ended in a 970-970 tie. In Tuesday’s special election, Grassie defeated Walter 568-451. The outcome further narrows the already razor-thin majority Republicans hold to 201-198, with one seat vacant. A special election will be held in Nashua to fill that seat May 16.
