On June 28, New Hampshire Representative Max Abramson of Seabrook said he is changing his registration from Republican to Libertarian. He had made a similar change in May 2016. While he was in the legislature then, he changed from Republican to Libertarian, but did not run for re-election. Instead he became the Libertarian nominee for Governor in 2016. He polled enough votes to give the Libertarian Party qualified status, which lasted until the 2018 election.
Some time afterwards, he changed his registration back to Republican, and was elected to the House again in 2018, as one of the three Republican representatives from the Rockingham 20 district.
He now says he had given the Republican Party one more chance to show that it is a small government party, but that the 2019 session of the legislature has disillusioned him about the Republican Party.
