Nashua Telegraph: Gearing up for 2010
Kevin Landrigan 6/28/09
Nashua's own Fred Tausch, considered a potential GOP candidate in the U.S. Senate race in 2010, ramped up his media campaign this week with his first TV ad attacking the federal stimulus.
Next Thursday, he hosts a free barbecue at Jillian's in Manchester with Republican state senator and mayoral candidate Ted Gatsas.
Tausch got the sincerest form of political flattery when declared candidate, U.S. Rep. Paul Hodes, D-New Hampshire, evoked his name this week in a fund-raising letter.
"Businessman Fred Tausch has been recruiting Republican operatives from John Sununu's team and is now attacking me in the mail – before he has even officially declared as a candidate,'' Hodes said in a mailing seeking cash donations in advance of a federal campaign finance reporting deadline Tuesday.
"This is why I need you on my team.''
