She was a Democrat who until recently continued to post tweets criticizing Republicans, particularly New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu.

But she was much more than that to me: she was my confidant and she was my dear friend. Judy had a fierce and relentless spirit that drove her through her career and she was fiercely loyal to the people she loved,” Shaheen said. Members of the New Hampshire Democratic Party leadership joined in mourning Reardon, who served two terms in the New Hampshire House of Representatives from 1985 to 1988.
