CONCORD, N.H. — A congressional candidate in New Hampshire has quickly updated a campaign logo that featured an inaccurate silhouette of her new home state.

Democrat Maura Sullivan is among at least five candidates hoping to succeed Democratic U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, who’s stepping down after her term ends.

The Boston Globe reports that Sullivan launched her campaign Monday with a logo featuring her first name in red next to a silhouette of the state in blue, but thanks to white space around her name, a chunk of New Hampshire’s southwest corner was cut off.

The mistake was fixed by Tuesday.

Sullivan is a former Marine and Iraq war veteran who moved to New Hampshire in June. She declined to comment to the Globe. Her campaign did not return an email seeking comment.
