NH GOP Statement on John Stephen's Candidacy

CONCORD – “The fact that two well-qualified candidates, Jeb Bradley and John Stephen, have announced their intent to run for Congress speaks to how vulnerable Rep. Carol Shea-Porter is. Shea-Porter is an extreme liberal, far to the left of her New Hampshire constituents, and she’s proud of it. Witness her remark earlier this month about why Shea-Porter votes with Speaker Nancy Pelosi 99 percent of the time: ‘I vote with the speaker because she is right.’ I believe that both Bradley and Stephen are absolutely capable of defeating Shea-Porter in 2008,” Cullen said.
