Bass For Congress - The Bass Report

Dear Friends,


We are just about there!  We have an action-packed schedule during these last four days of the campaign, and with your help, we'll have all the elements in place to close strong and win this race.  


Annie Kuster and I will debate for the last time tonight on WMUR, and I want to invite you to come watch it with my campaign team in Concord.  If you could come by our campaign office at 5:30 pm and make some phone calls to help turn out the vote, we'll provide dinner and great company for watching the debate at 8:00 pm!


Additionally, the office will be open the next four days, so please feel free to come in and volunteer when you can!  We'll also be knocking doors in Nashua on Saturday and Sunday. On Election Day itself, we could really use your help as a poll-stander or making get-out-the-vote calls.  If you have questions, or want to sign up to help at any of these times, please call my campaign office at 226-6000.


As we get closer to Election Day, it is just as important to talk with your friends and family about our campaign.  This is a close race, and every vote will matter.  


I can't tell you how much I appreciate the help and support you have given.  Let's keep fighting and win this race!

Charlie was endorsed by the Union Leader and the Eagle Tribune  last week and our momentum continued this week. Charlie's record of working across party lines to find real solutions was recognized by the newspapers that endorsed Charlie. Here is some of what they had to say...


Nashua Telegraph Endorsement: Charles Bass for Congress


"On Sunday, we made it clear that a candidate's proven ability or willingness to work with members of the opposing party - and to buck his or her party leadership when appropriate - would be a major factor in determining which candidates our editorial board would endorse this year.


That's why we're endorsing Bass. While we believe Kuster could bring a bipartisan approach to Congress, the seven-term congressman from Peterborough already has - most recently as one of the few House members to support an alternative budget based on the findings of the president's Simpson-Bowles commission.


Bass was one of only 38 House members - 16 Republicans and 22 Democrats - to vote in favor of the deficit-reduction proposal last spring, earning him a rare endorsement by the commission's namesakes and the 2012 Paul E. Tsongas Economic Patriot Award from the Concord Coalition for his bipartisan fiscal leadership.


While we don't agree with him on every issue - immediate repeal of the nation's health care reform law and his support for the budget plan crafted by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan among them - the centrist Republican is no stranger to breaking with his party on any number of high-profile issues."

Monadnock Ledger-Transcript Endorsement: What to look for on ballot Tuesday


"In most respects, Bass is what we'd hope for from a New Hampshire Republican. He's a traditional moderate, who stands apart from the more conservative members of his party on most social issues. He's also been an advocate of true energy reform."


"The Republican Party could sure use some strong, moderate voices from within, and we have high hopes that Bass will be a critical presence in guiding us back to center."
