Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement on former Democrat Rep. Carol Shea-Porter's announcement that she will run for Congress:

"New Hampshire voters rejected Congresswoman Shea-Porter last year because they were fed up with her lockstep support for President Obama's harmful partisanship and reckless tax-and-spend agenda. Granite Staters haven't forgotten her support for ObamaCare, which caused thousands of working families to lose their health insurance and countless more to lose their doctors, their jobs and hope for a better future. Former Congresswoman Shea-Porter lost last year and will lose again next year because she is dangerously out-of-touch and does not represent New Hampshire values.


Carol Shea-Porter thanks veterans for their service

Rochester, NH- Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement:

Today, we pause again to thank our veterans. Throughout our history, America's small towns and large cities have brought forth men and women who answer their country's call.  I watched as my grandfathers' World War I generation marched in parades, and watched as my dad's World War II generation marched in parades, and then watched as our vets of the Korean War and Cold War joined them.  I watched as my husband's Vietnam era Vets lined up and the WWI group dropped away.  Now I watch as the Gulf War I vets and our newest Iraq and Afghanistan Vets show up to march, as the last of my dad's generation fade away.

Throughout it all, we have prayed for peace and prayed for the men and women who show up to preserve it or restore it.  Thank you to my husband, my dad, my grandfathers, and to all of the men and women who answered the call.  This Veterans Day, we gratefully remember those now gone, and honor those living, for their service to America.”
