Carved from New Hampshire’s rock hard granite, hewn from its massive pines, and forged in the white hot crucible of battle, Ezra Kane stands ready to lead the people of New Hampshire to a brighter future. Having proved his mettle at home on the playing fields of UNH - Durham, where he lead the Groundhogs Men’s Water Polo team to a record two second-place finishes in the NCAA Division 3 Northeastern Conference, and abroad on the windswept hills of Afghanistan where he served a full tour of duty after deploying with the 506th Infantry Regiment as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, Congressman Kane brings unprecedented strength and experience to the U.S. Congress.
Kane, who continues to serve as a captain in the US Army Reserve, was discharged from active duty in 2016 having been awarded the Bronze Star for his actions in combat in Laghman province. He also earned the Ranger Tab, Combat Infantryman Badge, Parachutist Badge, Air Assault Badge, and Afghanistan Campaign Medal.
At home in tiny Dummer, NH (pop. 304), Rep. Kane helps manage his family’s 600 acre dairy farm and serves as a warden of the First Congregational Church of Dummer.
Married since 2011 to the former Jo (Josephine) Bell, Kane has two children, Ezra, Jr., 5, and Cayleigh, 2.
In Congress, he has championed a variety of issues important to Granite Staters including maple syrup subsidies, unfair maple syrup competition, increased Medicare, Medicaid, prescription drug, and disability benefits, reducing regressive taxes on liquor, gas, and cigarettes, eliminating burdensome regulation of the state’s nursing home industry, and, of course, demanding a fair shake for our nation’s veterans.
