The New Hampshire Union Leader is the largest daily newspaper in the state.

For years prior to that, it was called the Manchester Union-Leader. The Union Leader was known for the conservative political opinions of its late publisher, William Loeb, and his wife, Elizabeth Scripps “Nackey” Loeb. The Manchester Union Leader, as it was named at the time, assisted in derailing Maine Senator Edmund Muskie’s bid for the 1972 Democratic presidential nomination. Ater Nackey Loeb’s death on January 8, 2000, Joseph McQuaid, the son and nephew of the founders of the New Hampshire Sunday News, Bernard J. and Elias McQuaid, took over as publisher.
