Bearse For Congress - Independent Candidate Peter Bearse Submits 1710 Signatures For Certification

Peter Bearse, Independent candidate for Congress in the First Congressional District, today announced that his campaign has submitted 1710 signatures to town and city clerks for certification.

Wednesday was the deadline for submitting signatures in support of an Independent candidacy.

Bearse, of Fremont, said he was particularly proud of his field volunteers for gathering signatures from 73 of the 80 communities in the First District, and he is confident he will have more than the requisite 1500 certified signatures to appear on the November 4 ballot with the Republican nominee and incumbent U.S. Rep. Carol Shea Porter.

Bearse said the campaign will be further assisted by Ben Kilgore, a speechwriter and media consultant who was previously involved in New Hampshire politics as an adviser to the John Cox for President campaign.
