Unions spent millions to elect Hassan because she can block a Republican legislature from gutting their organizing and bargaining ability.

Trish Nixon talks about the challenge she has faced over the years about marijuana. Nixon said the message to her daughter changed over the years, evolving from "It's against the law, don't do it," to a more nuanced message that takes into consideration medical marijuana and ballot initiatives to legalize the drug. Trish Nixon said her mother's message meshed with what she was learning through her friends, which included some who used marijuana. (AP Photo/P. Solomon Banda)
