Message from Chairman MacDonald


The NH GOP needs your support! We have three weeks to go before our campaign filing, and we want to show that we have a strong, energized and growing GOP here in New Hampshire. Can I count on your support of $100, $50 or $25 today? At the State Party in Concord, we’re working hard to ensure that we not only deliver our state for the presidential and gubernatorial nominees, but that we also maintain our majorities in the state legislature and we keep our GOP delegation in Congress.

Our Republican leaders are fighting to hold the line on spending, keep our taxes low and put people back to work. We came together during our historic victories in 2010, and we need to do the same now as we head into a critical 2012 election year. Click here to show your support by contributing $100, $50, $25 or $10 today.

Senator Ayotte Backs Legislation to increase Oversight, Transparency of Federal Dollars



The Taxpayers Right to Know Act would require every federal agency to provide an annual report identifying and describing all of its programs, including:

  • Administrative costs;
  • Expenditures for services;
  • Number of clients served and beneficiaries who receive services;
  • Number of staff who administer the program;
  • A listing of other federal programs with duplicative or overlapping missions or services;
  • The most recent performance reviews for the program;
  • The most recent improper payment rate, including fraudulent payments; and
  • The total amount of unspent and unobligated program funds held by the agency and grant recipients.

Shaheen Only Member of Federal Delegation NOT Hosting Town Halls

Concord, N.H. -- With news that 7,600 Granite Staters will lose their Medicare benefits as a result of ObamaCare, it's no surprise that U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen is dodging voters across the state.  Contrary to every other member of the federal delegation, Shaheen has failed to host an in-person town hall.

“Voters deserve the chance to see and hear directly from their elected officials, and in our state they expect it,” said New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald.  “Now that seniors are beginning to see the cuts Shaheen made to Medicare, Granite Staters should have a chance to question her for helping this reckless plan become law.”

In this weekend's New Hampshire Union Leader, the paper's editorial page included this:

“Rule No. 1 when thinking about health insurance: never take Jeanne Shaheen's advice.  Last month 7,600 Granite Staters who use Medicare Advantage were informed that their coverage is being discontinued.  They are understandably upset.” (Editorial, New Hampshire Union Leader, 12/4/2011)

Latest Campaign Stump Offers more of the Same: Spending and Debt

Concord, NH -- New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement in advance of the latest campaign stump pushed by the White House.  Today, Cory Booker, the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, will be in the state to try and sell President Obama's second stimulus plan. 

“It doesn't matter who the White House sends to New Hampshire to stump for votes and help muscle through another round of stimulus spending.  While the latest official to offer spin for President Obama is Cory Booker, the message is the same -- more spending and bigger government.  Just like me, Granite Staters are frustrated and angered by the amount of spending we've seen from this Administration, especially in light of our nation's national debt topping $15,000,000,000,000 recently. 

“Instead of continuing this push for a second stimulus bill, President Obama and his allies should start to explain why they cut Medicare benefits for 7,600 seniors in New Hampshire.  The trouble is that Obama's White House is solely focused on its re-election campaign and doesn't care to talk about how the President's agenda has made matters worse.”
