NewtHampshire - Still time for a Granite State debate

Revolutionizing or Reshuffling?

As you probably know, the New Hampshire Union Leader endorsed Newt Gingrich and his “innovative, forward-looking strategy and positive leadership” for President.

Today, a Union Leader editorial called on Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich to meet one-on-one for a debate, as Newt has suggested:

There are two more debates scheduled for New Hampshire. They come after next week’s Iowa caucuses, and the field may be considerably smaller by then. So there is still time for Granite Staters to take the measure of these men and see whether Gingrich’s ideas, which led to a Republican revolution, matter more than Romney’s millions. (Full editorial here)

Mitt and Newt have a lot to talk about. For instance, this week Newt is highlighting his plan for the aggressive promotion of jobs and economic growth. Here is a brief but clear contrast between the two candidates. Especially up north, Granite Staters might want to learn why Mitt proposes a corporate income tax rate higher than Canada’s. No offense to our neighbors to the north or our friends hanging on in Massachusetts, but in the Live Free or Die state we demand politicians explain “why” when it comes to taxes that get in the way of jobs and growth.

So as the two most likely Republican nominees to challenge President Obama on these same issues, why not meet and discuss with New Hampshire voters?

Why not,
