NH State Rep Laurie Sanborn Releases Statement on Speaker's Race 


Bedford, NH – Republican Representative Laurie Sanborn released the following statement today regarding the race for NH Speaker of the House:

"As many of you know, my husband Andy became ill last week and spent time in the hospital. While the long term prognosis looks good, today there is sufficient uncertainty. At this time, my priority is Andy’s health.

“As such, I recognize that today I cannot give 100% to the role of Speaker, as family always comes first. Therefore, I am withdrawing from the Speaker’s race to focus on family and the job of State Representative.

“I want to thank everyone for their support, hard work and friendship along the way. 

“Andy and I look forward to a great Session and the opportunity to make New Hampshire the best state to live, learn, work and play." –Rep. Laurie Sanborn


Our American Initiative - Our America Issues Prevail at the Polls 

November 12, 2014, Santa Fe, NM -- While much of the attention from last week's election is focused on the outcomes of various Senate, House and gubernatorial races, a number of state and local initiatives co-sponsored, endorsed or supported by Our America were enacted by voters.
Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia all voted to legalize and regulate marijuana, joining Colorado and Washington. Our America was active in all three of those efforts, and Honorary Chairman Gov. Gary Johnson traveled to Alaska to personally urge support for that state’s historic legalization measure. Laws to reduce penalties for marijuana possession were enacted in both California and New Mexico.
Likewise, voters protected gaming from unnecessary government restriction in both Massachusetts and South Dakota. In Alabama, voters confirmed hunting rights, and in Massachusetts, a burdensome system of automatic gas tax increases was repealed.
And in Arizona, a ground-breaking law was passed to grant the “right to try” to patients with terminal illnesses who wish to try experimental medical treatments that have not yet been approved by the government.  Our America strongly supports the “right to try”, and looks forward to supporting similar measures across the nation.
Applauding these grassroots efforts, Governor Johnson said, "The fight for liberty isn't limited to the federal level. All across America, activists are working in their states and communities for smaller government and greater freedom. With this election behind us, Our America supporters are turning their attention to state legislative sessions next year and to other opportunities to advance liberty, economic freedom and smaller government. Last Tuesday’s results are a great start."

The OUR America Initiative is a 501(c)(4) political advocacy committee and may receive unlimited donations from both individual and corporate donors.
