CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - There’s a new political action committee to recruit and support progressive Democratic women to run for state, county and local office in New Hampshire.

The committee, known as GROW - Granite Staters Reaching Out to Women - plans to reach out to a diverse cross-section of New Hampshire women to increase the number of progressive women office holders in the state.

Democrat Terie Norelli, former Speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives and a founding member of the group, says the state once led the country in electing women to the Legislature, but the numbers have dwindled.

Other founding members include, Kathy Sullivan, former New Hampshire Democratic Party chairwoman, state Sen. Martha Fuller Clark; Judy Reardon, Stefany Shaheen; and Liz Purdy.
