New Hampshire- Today, former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, who is running for Congress in the First Congressional District, released the following statement.
“Last week, I asked my political opponent for the NH-O1 seat, Congressman Frank Guinta, to join with me to try to reduce Super PAC advertising in the 2012 election. His campaign responded by name-calling and falsehoods. New Hampshire voters don’t want to hear false accusations and name-calling. They just want Super PACs to stop all their negative advertising and let New Hampshire voters decide for themselves. I once again call on Frank Guinta to sign an agreement with me this week that we will:
* immediately send out a joint press release that Super PAC money is not welcome in NH-01
* jointly publicly denounce any Super PACs that use the airwaves or any form of media ads to attack or support either of us and
* jointly sign a public statement to the offending Super PAC that it stop running the ads immediately.
Frank Guinta and I should work together to try to reduce the constant barrage of ads that offend NH-01 voters and try to reduce outside influence by Super PACs.”
