    Bass Tries To Take Back His Old Seat

    Paul Hodes, a two-term Democrat, is giving up this seat to run for the Senate. The Republican candidate is former Rep. Charlie Bass, a moderate (though sounding more conservative this time) who was ousted by Hodes four years ago. Two years before that, he beat Hodes by 20 percentage points. Now he is an alternative energy consultant hoping to win back the seat he held for six terms. The Democratic nominee is Ann McLane Kuster, an attorney and community activist who is making her first run. -Ken Rudin
