Comprised of 14-18 year old Texans, the Celebration Singers, and their directors, have developed a highly choreographed routine aimed at declaring their faith and loyalty to God and Country. They have had the privilege of singing in some of our nation’s most impressive events including: Harbor-fest in Boston, the 4th of July Celebration in Seattle.

Choir Director Dale Perkins and his Celebration Singers “are excited to bring their highly spirited performances and their community service efforts to the Granite State!”

NRSC - TELEGRAPH: Hassan's Veto "Motivated By Political Ambition" 

NRSC

 

Hassan Is "Sacrificing Her Commitment To Bipartisanship Simply To Advance Her Political Career"

WASHINGTON - Following Governor Maggie Hassan's disastrous veto of the Legislature's responsible budget, the Nashua Telegraph took her to task for "firing off the harshest rhetoric", saying she "appears most motivated by political ambition". The Telegraph called out Hassan's hypocrisy for touting bipartisanship during her campaign, but abandoning that commitment after taking office "simply to advance her political career."

  • "During her election campaigns and throughout her first term, the governor crowed about how New Hampshire wasn’t like Washington. Here, she said, Democrats and Republicans are willing to work together to solve problems in constructive and non-confrontational way. What happened?"
  • "...Hassan...so far is firing off the harshest rhetoric and appears most motivated by political ambition. Hassan knows she’ll need the support of state employees to make a Senate bid, so the pay raise is crucial if – as many believe – she makes a run at Sen. Kelly Ayotte. It’s not the elephant in the room; it’s the whole safari. And that’s why the governor needs to be careful. If she pushes too hard, she becomes just another politician sacrificing her commitment to bipartisanship simply to advance her political career." (Editorial, Stopgap budget is not governing, The Nashua Telegraph, 06/27/15)

Statement By Governor Perry On Abortion Stay By Supreme Court 

AUSTIN - Today Governor Rick Perry released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s stay on Texas’ HB2 law:
 
“The Supreme Court’s stay unnecessarily puts lives in danger by allowing unsafe facilities to continue to perform abortions. I am confident the court will ultimately uphold these commonsense measures to protect the health and safety of Texas women.”

US Rep Frank Guinta - Victories for New Hampshire 

Friend I've spent the last six months in Congress fighting for the prosperity of Granite Staters.

 

Friend,

I’ve spent the last six months in Congress fighting for the prosperity of Granite Staters.

I wanted to update on you on the victories we’ve had so far. We’ve moved forward on reigning in government spending, sustainably managing local fisheries, protecting the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard from closure, and solving our state’s heroin and drug crisis.

Despite the progress we are making, Nancy Pelosi and top Democrats have made me a top target for 2016. They are planning on spending millions to try to beat me and take back the House in 2016.

In order to hold them off, we need local grassroots support to overpower the big money Washington based groups.

I know you are committed to the conservative cause, so I wanted to give you a chance to chip in using our secure link: https://action.teamguinta.com/contribute

Thank you for your continuing support,

Frank Guinta
