Article: Norelli challenged by Campbell for N.H. House speaker
"I believe the past two elections have shown the electorate is definitely not for anybody, they've been against (the party in power)," said David Campbell, a Harvard-educated lawyer who served in the House from 1978 to 1982 and again from 2004 to the present. "Two terms ago, the GOP didn't win, voters threw the Democrats out. Now Democrats did not win, voters threw the Republicans out. Voters are dissatisfied with what's going on in Concord, and the only way we can advance state government is to form a coalition that reaches across party lines. We need to galvanize a coalition to solve problems."

"Our voting records as far as Democratic values are identical," Campbell said. "I don't think that's the issue. It's how we're perceived by Republicans and how each of us would lead the House moving forward. I'm a less polarizing person. I think the Republicans respect me and I think they would cooperate with me if I led the House. I'm under no illusions. I understand politics being what they are, many issues split along party lines."
