Rep. Brandon Phinney
Rep. Brandon Phinney is in his first term in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. Originally elected as a Republican, Rep. Phinney became disenfranchised with how the party conducted business and was frustrated with its leadership. With the state budget being the contentious legislation of the 2017 session, Rep. Phinney stood on his principles and opposed the massive spending bill. This opposition to the Republicans due to its fiscal irresponsibility among other platform issues, Rep. Phinney officially switched to the Libertarian Party in June of 2017.
