HORN: I am the only Candidate who can win in November!
Highlights the need to create Jobs & Stop the Spending
NASHUA - At tonight's Second Congressional District Debate sponsored by the Nashua
Republican City Committee, Jennifer Horn, Republican Candidate for Congress, made
the case why she is the only candidate who can win in November and should be the
"The next Congress is going to take on critically important issues: Cap & Trade,
accessing our own natural resources, earmarks, and most importantly, spending,"
said Horn. "Congressman Bass has been on the wrong side of every one of these issues."
"Republicans have a credibility problem," Horn continued. "The last Republican majority
spent too much, grew government too much, became arrogant and corrupt and they were
fired with cause. If we are going to earn back the trust - and the votes - of our
neighbors across the district, we must offer them something different."
During the debate, Jennifer spoke on issues ranging from earmarks, Cap & Trade,
deficits, spending and job creation.
"We need jobs. We need Congress to stop spending. We need a government that functions
within its constitutional limits. And we need to put an end to the reign of career
politicians and Washington insiders once and for all," said Horn. "That means we
must have leaders who will fight for a balanced budget amendment, a constitutionally
sound line item veto, sunset provisions, elimination of earmarks, put an end to
congressional pensions and most importantly - we must have term limits."
Much of the conversation focused on experience. Congressman Bass has built his
campaign on his experience inside Washington.
Horn concluded: "When Charlie Bass talks about experience, what he really means
is expensive. I have a very different experience. My husband and I have run a
small business, I have worked in the health insurance industry, I had a talk radio
show and I am a mom, raising five children right here in Nashua. If we are going
to change Washington, it is time to send someone with real-world experience."
