Endorsements follow Union Leader endorsement of Innis last week

Manchester, NH - On Sunday the Portsmouth Herald endorsed Republican Dan Innis in his primary in NH-01.

The Portsmouth Herald writes: "Voters in the Republican District 1 congressional primary on Sept. 9 have a genuine choice between former Congressman Frank Guinta of Manchester and small-business owner and former University of New Hampshire business school dean Dan Innis of Portsmouth.

We think Innis is the far more exciting of the two candidates and the more likely to bring much-needed change to Washington, D.C. We also think Innis would fare far better with independent voters than Guinta in the general election against incumbent Democrat Carol Shea-Porter.

Guinta has a recent track record from his single term in Congress, from 2011 to 2013, where he was largely a GOP rubber stamp, accomplished little and had the sad distinction of being a member of arguably the least productive Congress in modern history, which voters swept out in disgust in the 2012 general election.

Innis is a breath of fresh air."

On Monday the Conway Daily Sun endorsed Republican Dan Innis in his primary in NH-01.

The Conway Daily Sun writes: " Republicans have a golden opportunity to offload some baggage and get on a train the could derail incumbent U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter by supporting Dan Innis over Frank Guinta in the Sept. 9 primary.

Innis, dean of the business school at the University of New Hampshire, business owner, openly gay father of three children, is running the spectrum with endorsements from the Union Leader to the state's firefighters union.

Though both Innis and Guinta have similar views on bedrock conservative like taxes and regulations, Innis has progressive ideas on education and social issues, new approaches Republicans need to win over Independents and unseat Shea-Porter. "
