|It was another great week of meeting with voters and engaging on the issues.
On Monday, Marian Noronha, Founder, Chair, and CEO of TurboCam in Barrington endorsed my campaign. He gave me a tour of the facility as well as the meeting with employees to answer the tough questions. I'm happy to have earned his endorsement.
On Wednesday, I toured one of the great New Hampshire industries, breweries and meaderies. Below is a photo of Michael Fairbrother founder and Erik Schroder cellar master of Moonlight Meadery in Londonderry.
On Thursday the Mount Washington Valley Economic Council hosted a debate among the three major candidates for US Senate. I enjoyed talking to the voters there and making my stances clear on the issues important to voters. This debate would not have happened if I had not forced Scott Brown to agree to it as a condition of me signing the unity pledge.
To read a recap of the debate, you can read the article here including NHPR calling Jim the "candidate of ideas". In response to the question, Scott Brown said that he wants to repeal Obamcare but people who are on it and like parts of it, such as coverage for pre-existing conditions, he suggested freezing those parts. It was the latest in a series of unclear statements on his position on Obamacare.
After the debate, I had an awesome time on the ATV trails at Jericho Mountain State Park in Berlin. Thank you Randy Cicchetto at Jericho Motorsports for getting me started on the trail and for your support.
The Keene Sentinel ran a piece this week on being the 'reform' candidate. They also interviewed voters, including one who called Rubens "my kind of guy."
Concord Monitor covered the NH Farm Bureau Picnic, noting that I stayed to answer the tough questions while other candidates did not.
Thank you to everyone who has hosted a house party or invited me to speak at your business. If you would like to host either, please go here or reply to this e-mail.
