Brown For US Senate - PROMINENT CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST MAUREEN MOONEY ENDORSES SCOTT BROWN

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maureen Mooney: Scott Brown Endorsement
Editorial, Merrimack Patch
April 14, 2014

MERRIMACK - 2012 was a difficult year for New Hampshire. The two-party system evaporated and gains made in 2010 were erased.  Our state returned to where we were after defeats in 2006 and 2008 (i.e., bigger government all at the direct expense of our small business-based economy). I think that 2014 can be different, and Scott Brown is the reason why I still believe we can turn things around. I’m pleased to endorse him in the 2014 Republican Primary for U.S. Senate.  

It is no exaggeration to say that Senator Shaheen’s voting record since taking office in 2008 has dispelled the myth that she is (or ever was) a thoughtful moderate who votes based on the issues and what is best for New Hampshire. Instead, her votes are partisan and consistently in line with Harry Reid and President Obama 99% of the time. Without doing the slightest bit of independent research or critical thought, on October 15, 2009, Senator Shaheen took to the Senate floor to echo the President that Obamacare would not require insured people to change plans or doctors, and that Obamacare would increase competition and lower costs. In 2010, when it became clear that the President’s promises of 2008 and 2009 were false, she again toed the party line and voted against sensible, moderate legislation which would have prevented the disruptions that 20,000 of her constituents recently experienced as Obamacare was implemented. Scott Brown knew better in 2010, and he knows better now.

Independent, common sense leadership requires standing up for your constituents when your party bosses are in the wrong. Senator Shaheen failed that test when she blindly repeated lies in 2009, and refused to be part of the solution in 2010, and had no explanation in 2013-2014. When Scott sees a problem, his first instinct is and always has been to use all of his skills to do the best he can for the people he represents, not his party leaders. Candidly, as a long-term Republican activist and a former elected official, there are votes he made as a U.S. Senator which I would have made differently. However, in that case and every other case, he will talk with any constituent, any time, for as long as it takes, and fully explain what he did, why he did it, and admit it if he made a mistake. Can we say the same for Senator Shaheen?   

After sitting down with Scott Brown and his wife, I am convinced that he is dedicated to getting this country back on track, and that he can win this election.  His time in the Senate demonstrated his commitment to prohibiting earmarks, reducing taxes, repealing Obamacare, and protecting religious liberty. In my view, he is best situated to defeat Senator Shaheen and return to the U.S. Senate representing New England’s last, best hope for common sense—the state of New Hampshire.

From Frank's Desk

As election season begins to pick up steam, so too does Team Guinta's March into April. This morning we are proud to release yet another list of leaders from around the District. This marks the seventh such list.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"The foundation of our campaign continues to be strengthened with the addition of local, county and statewide leaders, like the ones released today. The benefit of a grassroots campaign is the buy-in and collaboration that comes from their years of institutional knowledge, and Team Guinta will benefit greatly from this. It is going to take a District wide effort to win this fall, and this is a clear indication that we will have the infrastructure in place to do just that."

It was great to meet so many new people and get a chance to answer their questions!

Following the house party, Bill wrote a blog post about why he is supporting my campaign for Congress. You can read Bill's post by clicking here.

Later this week I will be joining Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) at a rally and fundraiser in Dover to support the New Hampshire GOP. This will be a wonderful opportunity to meet Rand Paul and help our Party win in November.

I hope that you will consider joining us. You can purchase tickets for the rally by going to the NHGOP website.

NHDP - The Donald Endorses Scott Brown 

"Another billionaire is joining the Scott Brown Appreciation Club. I wonder if Trump will ask him for his birth certificate"
 

WMUR: Scott Brown gets praise from The Donald

Donald Trump has opinions. He knows who is likes. He knows who he dislikes. He will basically tell you anything if you ask him the right way.

So when a local radio host asked Trump if he likes soon-to-be New Hampshire U.S. Senate candidate Scott Brown, Trump said he did.
Appearing on "New Hampshire Today with Jack Heath" on Manchester-based WGIR-AM Tuesday morning, Trump said would probably endorse Brown.

"I think I would. I think he is a good man. I think he’s done a good job. He was in a tough area if you are a Republican certainly and to get elected one time was sort of amazing actually and now he is in a little bit of a different location," Trump said. "I love New Hampshire. I have been to New Hampshire many times. I think he can do it."

Trump later said that Brown has "a very good chance of winning" this fall over Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen.

State Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley was not impressed with the Trump endorsement.

"Another billionaire is joining the Scott Brown Appreciation Club. I wonder if Trump will ask him for his birth certificate," said Buckley.

Of course, Brown will first have to get through a Republican primary before taking on Shaheen.

Trump was on the New Hampshire radio station in advance of his second trip to the state this year. He will speak at the Americans for Prosperity Freedom Summit with potential Republican presidential candidates.

As for running for president himself, he said he would prefer not to, but he would need to see how the rest of the 2014 election year would play out.

Innis For Congress - Senator John Reagan Endorses Dan Innis 

Manchester, NH - Dan Innis, Republican candidate for Congress in NH-01, announced today that Senator John Reagan (R-Deerfield) has endorsed his campaign for Congress.

WMUR's James Pindell broke the news this morning: http://bit.ly/1hTl3he

Senator Reagan is Vice Chairman of the Health, Education & Human Services Committee. Prior to serving in the Senate, John Reagan served three terms in the New Hampshire House of Representatives. Senator Reagan is also a member of the Rockingham GOP and Secretary of his town Republican Committee.

"As a small business owner Dan Innis knows that high taxes and big government policies are stifling American economic growth," Senator Reagan said. "In Congress, Dan will help get our economy growing again by supporting free market improvements to trade, transportation and agriculture policy as well as advocate for a flatter, fairer tax code."

"Dan Innis stands for smaller government, low taxes, and more freedom, and Dan is the Republican who will win in November. I am pleased to endorse Dan Innis for Congress," Senator Reagan concluded.

Dan Innis said, "I am grateful for Senator Reagan's support. John Reagan is a tireless advocate for individual liberty and small government and I look forward to working with him to further our shared goals."
