It was another great week on the Rubens campaign, including meeting with voters, earning endorsements, and media coverage.
This past weekend was a busy one, meeting with voters at events across the state including Goffstown Old Home Day, The Windham Transfer station, and the NH Fishercats.
Meanwhile, our grassroots team was out knocking on doors and talking to voters. There is nothing quite like the one-on-one interaction of grassroots campaigning in New Hampshire.
As part of the growing support from grassroots activists, proud to share with you that we earned support of the following individuals:
Kevin McHugh, Hanover
• Founder and Chairman of the New Hampshire Conservative Majority Project
• Founder and Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Volunteer Coalition
(endorsing in his personal capacity, no endorsement received or implied from the organization)
Russ and Lydia Cumbee, Franconia
• Republican and Tea Party activists
Hitting mailboxes this week was the campaign's first mailer aimed at 2nd Amendment supporters. In the letter, Rubens makes clear that he is "unequivocally that candidate" who says Washington politicians should keep their hands off Americans' firearms freedoms.
The media attention this week included:
PJ Media called Rubens the "other Republican in this race".
Foster's Daily Democrat broke down the US Senate rate as follows: "For U.S. Senate the two most viable contenders are Scott Brown and Jim Rubens."
WMUR's James PIndell gave the campaign an "UP" in his weekly Political Standing column, saying Jim Rubens "is still in the embryonic stages of being named the Brown alternative in the Republican primary and ... he has people talking."
Finally The Nashua Telegraph wrote a piece outlining how a Brown-Shaheen matchup would offer little contrast to voters. IN the piece, Rubens took a stand on an issue the other candidates have refused to weigh in on, Northern Pass. Rubens stated ""Northern Pass: There is a real solution - bury it," he said. "The notion it is not financially viable is being completely disproved by the competing plans in Vermont and New York doing it this way."
