Brown For US Senate - BROWN HOSTS VETERANS COALITION KICK-OFF, ANNOUNCES 203 MEMBERS 

MANCHESTER This evening, Scott Brown hosted the “Veterans for Brown” coalition kick-off event at campaign headquarters.  The coalition is being co-chaired by retired Marine Corps Sergeant Major Paul Chevalier, retired Air Force Reserve Colonel Theresa Negron, and retired Navy Lieutenant Bill Grimm.
 
“Scott Brown understands the challenges faced by servicemembers and their families.  As our senator, I know he will work hard to make sure they are supported long after they’ve answered the call to serve,” said Chevalier.
 
“Washington is broken, and it is deeply troubling that our veterans and their families are paying the price for the dysfunction and red tape that constantly gets in the way.  Scott Brown has served our country and will fight to make a difference for us; we need his leadership in the Senate,” said Negron.
 
“Scott will work across the aisle to deliver results for the veterans community.  I’m pleased to see Scott has outlined commonsense ideas to get more veterans back to work and place a check and balance on Washington—ensuring we have access to the health care and services we need,” said Grimm.
 
Earlier today, the Brown campaign released a list of over 
200 veterans committed to supporting Brown’s candidacy, representing all five military branches.
 
“We need to put our veterans first and ensure they are treated with dignity and respect,” said Brown, a 35-year member of the Army National Guard.  “I am deeply humbled to be supported by so many brave men and women who served our country and are ready for change in Washington.” 
 
Since last week, Brown has been criss-crossing the state on the “Honoring Our Veterans” tour to meet with veterans and tour facilities.  Brown released a detailed policy sheet outlining ways to improve VA accountability, improve employment opportunities and streamline access to health care.  As senator, Brown authored the Hire A Hero Act to provide tax credits for businesses that hire veterans.

Endorsements Continue to Roll in for Team Guinta!

This morning, Team Guinta is pleased to release its 21st consecutive weekly endorsement list. Former Governor, nationally recognized entrepreneur, and successful businessman Craig Benson has endorsed Frank Guinta in his race for Congress.

Frank Guinta released this statement:

“Governor Benson knows what it takes to balance budgets, cut red tape, and create jobs. His support is a testament to our core message. Washington is broken, we need to elect people who understand that jobs are created by small businesses and entrepreneurs, not government. Having worked in the private sector, started businesses, been the executive of the State's largest City, I know how to govern and legislate effectively. I am honored to receive Governor Benson’s endorsement and look forward to continuing our Middle-Class Economic Recovery Tour.”

Governor Benson’s endorsement reads as follows:

“I have worked with Frank both in the public sector and as a private business man. He is good at identifying problems and fixing them. As Mayor of Manchester he served the people well by keeping a tight rein on spending and by solving problems both big and small. We need Frank back in Congress and I am proud to support him once again.”

Cormier For NH Senate(16) - Top Conservatives Gather for Jane Cormier 

Cormier Urges Supporters to Get Active


On Sunday, July 20, The McManus Family of Bow hosted a “Meet and Greet” for Republican NH State Senate Candidate, Jane Cormier.  The 50 or so in attendance included Andrew Hemingway, Candidate for Governor, Marilinda Garcia, Congressional Candidate for District 2, and Candidate for US Senate, Senator Bob Smith.  Other people present included NH Senator Sam Cataldo, NH Rep. JR Hoell, House Candidate Michelle Levell, and Karen Testerman.


The attendees not only enjoyed a beautiful day and great food, but got  to speak with Jane up close and personal.  "It was a day for true Conservatives to get together and share their ideas, energy, and optimism in upcoming races this election season," said Cormier.

Cormier fired up those in attendance with a rousing speech which can be seen here in full courtesy of Granite Grok.  "If we don't start to tell the truth within our party as Republicans, we are doomed to get what we keep getting, which is people who are not going to fight for the platform," she said. She cited the gas tax as something her opponent voted for despite signing a Pledge not to vote for broad-based taxes. She also talked about his vote against Right to Work and his lack of action on educational matters.  Cormier is in a primary battle with Senator David Boutin, Senate District 16. This district includes Bow, Candia, Dunbarton, Hooksett, and Wards 1, 2, and 12 of Manchester.
 


In addition to other notables present at the house party, Cormier had previously garnered endorsements from former US Senator Gordon Humphrey, former Speaker of the House Bill O'Brien, and other prominent conservatives.


Considered the authentic Conservative in the race, Cormier stands for small government, no new taxes, and fiscal responsibility.
