RLCNH Follows Kimball Nod with Endorsement of Jordan Ulery for National Committeeman


Ulery, a state representative, said liberty-minded conservatism will attract members to ‘big tent’

CONCORD, N.H.―For Republican National Committeeman, the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire is endorsing State Rep. Jordan Ulery, a small businessman, committed volunteer and strong advocate for liberty-minded conservative Republicanism.

Ulery, who is running to complete the four-year term vacated by Sean Mahoney, said that the role of the National Committeeman is not to raise money for a specific candidate, but to encourage support for the party and its platform. Rather than pursue a squishy Republicanism using a broad-spectrum philosophy, Ulery said he would bring Independents and some Democrats under the “big tent” by convincing them how liberty-minded, conservative Republican principles will help restore the country’s economic and social success.

“Voters in New Hampshire and across the nation sent a clear message at the polls this fall that they did not like the solutions Democrats brought to the table, so the idea often promoted by national pundits that the Republican Party has to ‘move to the center’ to succeed is just absurd,” said Andrew Hemingway, chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire. “Rep. Jordan Ulery knows that a strong, principled GOP will help improve the economy, restore the constitution and heal our cultural divisions. Not only that, he knows that a principled party will attract new members, improve fundraising efforts and win elections, and that’s why we’re endorsing him for Republican National Committeeman.”

Once elected, Ulery said he would get to work right away with newly elected Party Chairman Reince Priebus to improve the national party’s image and raise a targeted $400 million for the 2012 election. Such fundraising would easily erase the $20 million debt accumulated under Michael Steele, along with the disillusionment that came with it. As a small business owner committed to Republican principles, Ulery knows how to connect with potential donors who abandoned the RNC in the 2010 elections and bring them back into the national fold.

Ulery has also said he would be an ardent supporter of the First In the Nation Primary for New Hampshire. He said he has a good relationship with Secretary of State Bill Gardner and will use his extensive knowledge of state history to assist in that effort whenever it is threatened by Democrats or jealous Republican states.

As a frequent attendant at American Legislative Exchange Council events—trips he said he has self funded—Ulery said he has built a network of like-minded RNC members in every corner of the country who are also legislators.

“New Hampshire and the United States will clearly benefit from a GOP National Committeeman who can promote New Hampshire Republicanism across the nation,” Hemingway said.

New Hampshire has three Republican National Committee members. If Ulery wins, he would serve with Committeewoman Phyllis Woods and the New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman. Earlier this month, the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire endorsed Jack Kimball for that position.
