Innis running for Congress because 'Washington is broken' 

August 14, 2014

Dan Innis said he can sum up in two sentences why he is running for Congress.

"Washington is broken. And I'm fed up with it," he said. "I said to myself I can either jump in and make things better, or I can keep complaining."

Innis is seeking the Republican nod during primary voting in September to take on Democratic U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter in November. He is running in the primary against former U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta.

Innis spoke Wednesday to members of the Portsmouth Herald editorial board.

He said he believes the choice before voters in September is clear.


Guinta, Innis said, "is a career politician."

"Everything he's done is a political step, and that puts you in a box," he said. "I am not in a box. I am not about playing politics.

"I'm proud of my background. I have not been in politics before, but I am someone who has accomplished things in life, and I know how important it is to set an agenda and move forward on it. I'm a different kind of problem solver," he said.
