Puterbaugh will add momentum to a successful Republican effort to build a responsible government


CONCORD, N.H.―To build on the triumph of common sense in this year's House of Representatives, the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire endorses Honey Puterbaugh for state representative in a Strafford District 3 special election on Tuesday, Aug. 9.

Puterbaugh, who is running for a vacant House seat representing the towns of Barrington, Strafford, Farmington, New Durham, Middleton and Milton, would be a needed reinforcement for House Speaker O'Brien and his Republican supporters in the House who are trying to build a responsible government that lives within its means and honors the personal and economic liberties of its citizens.

“I couldn't be happier with the job Republicans did this year building a responsible budget, which first looked at reasonable revenue estimates and then spent less than the estimated revenue—that's just what New Hampshire working families do at their kitchen table when building their own budgets,” said Andrew Hemingway, chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire. “Honey Puterbaugh will bring the same responsible, limited government philosophy to the table in Concord that Republicans have practiced all year. She will ensure that the state continues down the path to fiscal solvency and pursues efforts to stimulate job growth in the private sector.”

On her Web site, Puterbaugh asserts that the state has a spending problem, not a revenue problem, and no new tax revenue is needed for the future health of the state. She says she wants to get to work on reducing business taxes and regulatory burdens, which will allow for job growth and prosperity. Puterbaugh also supports more guarantees for parents' rights and choices as they go about the business of raising and educating their children. Finally, Puterbaugh knows that all citizens must have the right to protect themselves when their lives are threatened and will always support laws that promote the Second Amendment.

In general, endorsed RLCNH candidates are strong proponents of limited government, individual liberty, personal responsibility and free enterprise. They have shown their dedication to these ideals with their score on RLCNH’s 20-question candidate survey and their reputation among liberty activists. Endorsed candidates must score 80 percent or higher on the survey and they must have a strong character recognized by their peers.
