Party majorities in State Legislature and governor seat essential for success of the caucus’s agenda
CONCORD, N.H.―Now that all the dust has settled following the state’s primary races, the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire can announce that 134 of its 153 endorsed candidates, or 88 percent, were nominated as Republican candidates and will appear on their respective general election ballots on Nov. 2. Of the 94 endorsed candidates with a contested primary, 74 of them, or 79 percent, earned the support of voters in their districts.
“It thoroughly pleases me that voters responded so well to our candidates’ Common Sense agenda, which relies on the core American principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual liberty and personal responsibility,” said Andrew Hemingway, chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire. “Now that we’ve achieved such success in the primary, it is time for all Republican nominees to work together in a concerted effort to defeat Democrats on Nov. 2. It is important for Republicans to win substantial majorities in both the New Hampshire House and the New Hampshire Senate so the ideas we’ve worked so hard to promote in the primary can come to life.”
As part of an effort to promote Republican unity going into the general election, the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire will give all 409 Republicans running for state elected positions access to its candidate support Web site. The caucus’s candidate support Web site offers prepared campaign materials, networking opportunities and a shared agenda, called Common Sense for New Hampshire, which will help build momentum in the Legislature for laws that promote jobs and economic opportunity, fix health care in New Hampshire and empower parents and local communities.
“We hope this effort to help all Republicans will reinforce the idea that primaries are the time for Republicans to promote their preferred candidates,” Hemingway said. “Once the primaries are over, it is imperative that Republican voters and candidates band together to support all the GOP candidates running for office as a group.”
Currently, there are 379 Republicans running for positions in the State House of Representatives, 24 Republicans running for the State Senate, five Republicans running for the Executive Council and one Republican, John Stephen, running for governor.
