Guinta For Congress - Where are Shea-Porter's supporters?

"In addition to Frank Guinta decisively winning tonight’s debate, something else was made very clear. Long gone are the days of former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter having a strong coalition of grassroots support."


(Manchester – November 2, 2012) Carol Shea-Porter was once well-known for having strong grassroots support, however today was evidence that those days for former Congresswoman Shea-Porter are long gone.

Along with having over 150 supports rallying to show their support for Frank Guinta prior to his WMUR debate at St. Anselm College and a full-house debate watch party afterwards, scores more volunteers were still back at Team Guinta headquarters in Manchester making over 85,000 phone calls to voters this evening.

In contrast, Carol Shea-Porter had only 3 supporters at the rally and no debate watch party this evening.

Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Guinta for Congress, released the following statement:

“In addition to Frank Guinta decisively winning tonight’s debate, something else was made very clear. Long gone are the days of former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter having a strong coalition of grassroots support.

“In contrast, supporters from as far away as Laconia and Rochester came to Manchester today to show their support for Frank. Whether it’s knocking on doors, making phone calls, or other important efforts to contact voters, Team Guinta showed today that they are ready to continue working hard to insure victory on Tuesday. Team Shea-Porter clearly is not.”
