(Manchester – November 2, 2012) In tonight’s WMUR debate, the final one of the 2012 Election for New Hampshire’s First Congressional District, Frank Guinta clearly and decisively defeated former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter on every issue discussed. From jobs and the economy to rising energy costs, Frank Guinta vastly outperformed his opponent. Coupled with a poll released today from New England College that showed Frank Guinta beating Carol Shea-Porter by 7 points, 48% - 41%, momentum is certainly on the side of Frank Guinta as we head towards Election Day.
Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Guinta for Congress, released the following statement:
“This evening, Frank Guinta continued to focus on jobs, the economy, and lowering fuel costs. He clearly showed his plan for working in a bipartisan manner to help our job creators put New Hampshire back to work, assist our veterans and reduce our debt and deficit to move our country in the right direction.
“In contrast, Carol Shea-Porter continued to highlight exactly what is wrong with Washington. The former Congresswoman would rather focus on partisan politics that divide America rather than bipartisan policies that would unite us. Not once did Carol Shea-Porter even discuss how she would work bipartisanly to get Granite Staters back to work. New Hampshire deserves better.”
