Manchester, N.H.—Ovide Lamontagne, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, today released a team of business leaders from across the state.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy,” said Lamontagne. “I am proud to be backed by business owners across New Hampshire who know the importance of the private sector and what it means to create real jobs. These leaders believe, as I do, that by unleashing free market principles, we allow our state and country to flourish.  We need to shrink the federal government, rein in spending and balance our budget, to allow these leaders to do the job they do best – create jobs.”
