Re: State of the Race: New Hampshire’s 2nd Congressional District                          __

As we have moved into the Election Year, Col. Gary Lambert is in a strong position to defeat Congresswoman Ann Kuster. In all aspects of a strong campaign, Lambert has built a strong foundation to win both the Primary and General Elections. Combining polling, grassroots, finance, and increasing positive climate for experienced, common sense conservatives like Col. Lambert, the campaign is increasingly excited about the position we are in today.

Polling: This week, the University of New Hampshire released new data for the 2nd Congressional District and Col. Lambert is within the margin of error against the Congresswoman. New Hampshire is known for its plurality of independent voters. Most importantly, Lambert and Kuster are tied amongst these swing voters. He is the only Republican candidate in the race with numbers that strong. Col. Lambert’s positive message on creating middle-class jobs will put him a position to win as the race continues.

Grassroots: Col. Lambert has attended dozens of county, town, and community Republican committee events from Keene, Salem, Windham, Peterborough and Nashua, to Northern Grafton County and the Great North Woods. He has made it a priority to hear from those he seeks to represent. Through these events he has been able to gather nearly 300 public endorsements signatures including political leaders.

Finance: The 4th fundraising reports show Col. Lambert is in a strong position. He has more Cash on Hand than any other Republican in the state right now with nearly $220,000 in the bank having raised nearly a quarter of a million dollars. As the Lambert finance committee continues to grow, we are on pace to exceed our Primary Election budget.

Political Environment: The UNH poll’s data on the political environment in the 2nd District is what will keep Congresswoman Kuster and her team up late at night. Despite maintaining the power of incumbency, only 30% of voters have a favorable opinion of her. Most pundits will tell you, when an incumbent drops below 50% they need to be nervous. Her favorability is dismal. Her support of Obamacare, lashing out at constituents and her inability to pursue policies that create economic growth are catching up with her.
