Former State Senate President Tom Eaton Endorses Jennifer Horn for Congress
NASHUA - Jennifer Horn, Republican candidate for the 2nd Congressional District, announced today that Former New Hampshire State Senate President Tom Eaton will be endorsing her.
Tom Eaton: "I am proud to support Jennifer Horn in her campaign to represent our Second Congressional District. Jennifer is a true conservative. She is a new face on the campaign trail and is not beholden to any particular group or special interest. As a working wife and mother Jennifer experiences first-hand the problems of everyday America. As a former talk show host and columnist she is already an accomplished and proven communicator. I support Jennifer Horn because I am convinced she will transform her understanding of what matters to the people of New Hampshire into action in Washington."
Jennifer Horn: "I am honored to have Tom Eaton's support in my efforts to win the 2nd Congressional seat. I have a tremendous amount of respect for his values and his service to the people of New Hampshire. We share a belief that it is time to change the way Washington does business. We need real immigration reform that does not reward illegal behavior. We need to make government smaller by keeping taxes low and cutting wasteful government spending. We need to secure funds for our troops to give them the best equipment to do their jobs and the best care when they return home. Tom Eaton is a man of strong values that has always fought for what is right. I will look to that example when I am elected to Congress and serving the people of New Hampshire."
