Guinta For Congress - How long will Rep. Shea-Porter hide from her partisan record?

5 WEEKS AND COUNTING… HOW LONG WILL CONGRESSWOMAN SHEA-PORTER HIDE FROM HER PARTISAN RECORD?

“The question today is the same as it was five weeks ago – will Congresswoman Shea-Porter ever embrace the New Hampshire tradition of accessibility or does she plan on spending the rest of the election hiding from her lock-step voting record with Nancy Pelosi?”

(Manchester – June 26, 2012) As of yesterday, five weeks have now gone by since the Guinta for Congress campaign noted that Congresswoman Shea-Porter has made an incredible effort to hide from Granite State voters. Since then, nothing has changed.

On June 20th, this campaign pointed out in a news release that when Granite Staters visit www.sheaporter.com, the only thing New Hampshire voters are greeted with is a picture of the Congresswoman, a short letter on why she is running for reelection, and the option to donate to her campaign. No ability to learn about her position on the issues. No possibility of studying her record in Congress.

We are almost 100 days from Election Day and Granite Staters would be hard pressed to even find a single event to talk with Congresswoman Shea-Porter at – as she has made significant efforts to not publically release any events she plans on attending.

Guinta spokesman Derek Dufresne released the following statement:

“When Congresswoman Shea-Porter went to Washington, she forgot about New Hampshire. Now in 2012, she’s hoping that New Hampshire forgets about her partisan voting record. Granite Staters deserve better than a politician who would rather hide from them then openly discuss the important issues of the day.
