"The Republican Party cannot afford to risk nominating a candidate [Guinta] who is one subpoena away from a full-blown scandal."
Manchester, NH - Dan Innis, Republican candidate for Congress in NH-01, announced today that former New Hampshire Party Chairman Fergus Cullen has endorsed his campaign for Congress.
Fergus made his endorsement on Sunday in a letter to the editor in Foster's newspaper.
The NH-01 Republican primary between Dan Innis and Frank Guinta is tomorrow.
From Fergus's letter to the editor:
To the editor:
Does the prospect of yet another election between Carol Shea-Porter and Frank Guinta leave you thinking, is this the best New Hampshire has to offer?
I'm tired of voting for the least-worst option. Congress won't change if we keep sending the same people back. It's time to give someone new a try.
I'll be voting for Dan Innis in the Republican primary next week. He's a fiscal conservative and takes a thoughtful approach to policy. Innis has built a successful career outside of politics, rising to lead the business school at UNH while owning and operating hotels in Portsmouth and raising a family.
Guinta is a deeply flawed candidate. I don't believe his vague and shifting explanations about the origins of the $355,000 he lent his campaign (he says he forgot he had the money) or how he's being paid now for consulting on a senate campaign in Louisiana. He's not being honest. The Republican Party cannot afford to risk nominating a candidate who is one subpoena away from a full-blown scandal. Shea-Porter wants to run against Guinta again; after all, she beat him last time. The Democrats do not want to have to run against Innis.
We can do better than Mrs. Been There and Mr. Done That. I hope you'll join me in voting for change by voting for Dan Innis for Congress.
Other endorsements of Dan Innis include lifelong New Hampshire public servants Doug and Stella Scamman, State Senator John Reagan, Sheriff Craig Wiggin, former Executive Councilor Ruth Griffin, Hampton Selectman Jim Waddell, several state representatives and the editorial endorsements of the New Hampshire Union Leader, the Portsmouth Herald and the Conway Daily Sun.
