Manchester, NH – A quick scan of this morning’s headlines reveals the hard truth about New Hampshire’s First District Congressional race: Congressman Guinta’s campaign is struggling and desperate, while Carol Shea-Porter is talking with voters about solutions to move New Hampshire forward.
Yesterday, it was revealed that the National Republican Congressional Committee sent a desperate and blunt memo to its top donors, on behalf of incumbents who are “most in need”. Congressman Guinta was listed as one of those struggling campaigns. Despite thousands of dollars in donations from Wall Street and Big Tobacco, Congressman Guinta is still unable to keep his campaign afloat.
This poor performance demonstrates the profound lack of enthusiasm for his candidacy here in New Hampshire. The National Journal also noted Guinta’s poor polling numbers in the state.
Meanwhile, Carol Shea-Porter has been touring the state talking with voters about small business and the middle class, presenting new ideas. Yesterday, she had a productive meeting with employees of Fidelity Investments in Merrimack, to discuss the economy and her plan to create more jobs. She also met with students in the Lakes Region Community College Energy Training Program. Their labs and classrooms were built with assistance from funding that Congresswoman Shea-Porter secured. Carol Shea-Porter actually follows a pro-growth economic model.
