Brown For US Senate - BROWN RALLIES WITH AYOTTE & MCCAIN IN NASHUA 

NASHUA Today, Scott Brown held a rally with Senators Kelly Ayotte and John McCain at American Legion Post #3 to underscore the importance of the upcoming election, where New Hampshire has the opportunity to elect independent leadership to fight for our families and restore America at home and abroad.

 
“In order to change the direction of our country, we need to change senators," said Scott Brown.  "I am running to be an independent voice for our state, to restore America and make our economy strong again.  Senator Shaheen has broken her promise to Granite Staters by voting for President Obama's failed agenda 99% of the time instead of putting New Hampshire first.  I am grateful to stand shoulder to shoulder with Senators Ayotte and McCain, and ask for your vote on November 4th to return to Washington and fight for you."
 
The trio drew a crowd of 100 people who packed the venue to hear remarks and show their support for Scott Brown entering the final stretch of the campaign.
 
"The Senate under Harry Reid is a rubber stamp for President Obama’s failed policies.  Next Tuesday, New Hampshire citizens have the opportunity to change that by voting for Scott Brown," said Ayotte. "Scott is a proven leader who will fight for New Hampshire families.  He’ll be a strong voice for fiscal responsibility, accountable government, and a better economic climate so Granite State businesses can grow and create jobs.  And most of all, electing Scott Brown will help ensure we can get the Senate working again to get things done for the people of New Hampshire and our country."

 
"I know the state of New Hampshire well, and I know that it doesn’t need a senator who votes 99 percent of the time with President Obama. It needs an independent voice like Scott Brown," said McCain. “He has served his country for 35 years and has the experience to bring much needed leadership back to the Senate.  I am proud to stand with him today and encourage Granite Staters to hit the polls and vote to restore America on November 4th by electing Scott Brown."

There’s a lot to fix in this country, Scott Brown said at a Nashua Rotary lunch on Monday, including a lack of leadership at the top.

“The world is on fire,” said Brown at the start of his remarks Monday. He spoke of international issues such as Ebola, military buildup in China, kidnappings by Boko Haram and fighting in Syria, citing a lack of leadership.

Brown is running against Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen and delivered a pro-business message while highlighting differences between him and Shaheen during his remarks at the Nashua Country Club..

“This race is going to be about differences,” Brown said. “She’s a good person. I’ve said it before and I’m going to say it again and again. We just have different ways of looking at things.”

Brown illustrated differences in votes on issues including border security and energy issues.

On border security. “I voted to send troops to the border, Senator Shaheen didn’t,” Brown said.

On energy: “Senator Shaheen is against coal, she’s against nuclear,” Brown said. “She’s against focusing and helping step back from our dependence on foreign oil.”

Brown listed corporate taxes, rising energy and healthcare costs as obstacles to New Hampshire businesses.

“The only thing worse than voting 99 percent with the president is voting 100 percent against small businesses,” said Brown.

"/

In case you missed it, The Keene Sentinel yesterday published this article which explains why a local small-business owner is supporting Marilinda Garcia instead of Ann Kuster. According to the article:

“At the time, Pelkey attempted to get help from Democratic Rep. Ann M. Kuster, the incumbent defending her 2nd Congressional District seat against Garcia in the Nov. 4 election.

Pelkey said he didn’t get an answer from Kuster, leading him to place his faith in Republican candidates.”

The article went on to say “he said he was also concerned about excessive regulation for businesses, and said he likes that Garcia supports reducing the number of regulations businesses must follow.

“She has the knowledge and the experience, and just the right ingredients,” he said.”

An ‘Opportunity for All’ To Be Heard

Concord, NH– Kenny Cunningham, communications director for Marilinda Garcia for Congress, released the following statement announcing that Marilinda Garcia will host 5 townhall meetings before the November 4 election:

“In honoring a New Hampshire tradition and the expectations of integrity and openness from our candidates, Marilinda Garcia will host 5 townhall meetings in New Hampshire’s Second District before Election Day, starting on October 7th, in Littleton. These townhall meetings will offer voters an honest opportunity to interact one-on-one with Marilinda and discuss with her the important issues facing our state and our nation.”

Cunningham went on to say, “Although Ann Kuster has yet to respond to our request to participate in a townhall forum, we would like to renew our invitation to her, and urge her to attend any of the below townhall meetings. We see no reason for her to miss these valuable opportunities to meet with the people of New Hampshire, and thus we will be prepared for her participation in every forum.”

“Additionally, we have provided directions to each meeting for Ann Kuster, and we are more than willing to facilitate her travel arrangements so that she is finally able to participate in a townhall meeting.

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Guinta Tours New Horizons in Manchester with Senator Ayotte

Tour focused on New Horizons' core mission

MANCHESTER – September is "Hunger Action Month," and Frank Guinta observed it yesterday with a tour of New Horizons in Manchester. He was accompanied by Senator Kelly Ayotte and the tour was led by Charlie Sherman, New Horizons’ Executive Director. 

New Horizons is an adult homeless shelter, a soup kitchen, food pantry and operates Angie's Shelter for Women in Manchester. 

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"It was an honor to take a tour of New Horizons with Senator Ayotte and Charlie Sherman. We discussed the ongoing challenges presented by mental illness and substance abuse issues.  Having a family member with a mental illness brings clarity to the issue and this will remain a top priority of mine.  We have a responsibility to help those most in need who are incapable of caring for themselves.  Thank you to New Horizons for the tremendous role they play in our community, I look forward to working with them in the future."
