Concord - New Hampshire Republican Committee State Chairman Jennifer Horn today announced that Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) will give a keynote speech at the NHGOP Grassroots Training and Rally on March 14, 2015.
"We have enacted bold, successful reforms in Wisconsin and we have a great story to tell," Governor Walker said. "I look forward to sharing our common sense conservative message with grassroots activists, and I thank the New Hampshire GOP for this exciting opportunity."
In response to the announcement, NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn said, "We are happy to have Governor Walker join us for a Grassroots Training and Rally in New Hampshire. He has proven that he is not afraid to stand up to the liberal establishment and fight for conservative principles, no matter the consequence. We are proud to welcome Governor Walker to our state and look forward to an enthusiastic grassroots training session with Republicans in New Hampshire."
Activists from across the state will gather to hear Governor Walker speak and attend a grassroots training session.
The Grassroots Training and Rally will take place on March 14, 2015 from 9:30 am until 12:30 pm at the New Hampshire Technical Institute.
Join us tomorrow at the Statehouse at 10AM to help repeal RGGI!
Tomorrow at 10AM in Representatives Hall there will be a hearing on HB 208, which would repeal the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the failed cap-and-trade scheme commonly known as RGGI.
Our focus right now should be on creating new jobs and growing the economy. Unfortunately the RGGI program does just the opposite. It undermines our competitiveness while increasing electricity costs for our ratepayers.
The time has come to remove New Hampshire from this failed program and give relief to our hard-working citizens and business owners.
If you agree, plan to join us tomorrow at 10AM at Representatives Hall to make your voice heard.
I hope to see you there!

Award-Winning Journalist Ben Swann to Address the New Hampshire Liberty Forum
Manchester, NH Two-time Emmy award winning reporter Ben Swann will give the Friday night keynote address at the New Hampshire Liberty Forum on March 6, 2015, organized by the Free State Project.
Manchester, NH – The Free State Project is proud to announce investigative journalist Ben Swann will be appearing at its March conference, the New Hampshire Liberty Forum. Swann, a nationally known video journalist who has won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards, will be addressing an audience of several hundred libertarian activists on Friday March 6 at 8:30 PM at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, N.H.
Swann, 36, was until 2013 a prime-time anchor at WXIX in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he produced and presented the popular and controversial “Reality Check” segment. He left that job to pursue independent reporting through his “Truth in Media” project. According to benswann.com, his work has garnered over 10 million video views in more than 140 countries.
As an anti-establishment journalist, Swann’s reporting has focused on issues such as the drug war, education, gun control, privacy, foreign policy, and elections. Swann’s vision of journalism consists of “speaking truth to power through media, culture, and technology to empower the voice of the people toward liberty and freedom” (benswann.com). This will be his first time speaking at a Free State Project event.
“Ben Swann is a fearless reporter, willing to cover issues ignored by the mainstream media,” said Free State Project president, Carla Gericke. “When Ben launched his ‘Truth in Media’ project in 2013, he did so here in New Hampshire because Ben understands this is ground zero for the grassroots liberty movement.”
The New Hampshire Liberty Forum, an annual event started in 2007, showcases the Granite State each winter, bringing together national experts in the fields of journalism, economics, education, political science, and philosophy. This year’s event features, in addition to Swann, chairman and CEO of Overstock.com Patrick Byrne, Cato Institute vice president David Boaz, Reason magazine editor Nick Gillespie, successful Brady Act challenger and former sheriff Richard Mack, Charles Koch Institute vice president William Ruger, Wake Forest professor James Otteson, Dartmouth professor Meir Kohn, and many others. The event is open to the public and will be taking place March 5-8, 2015. Tickets can be purchased at nhlibertyforum.com, starting at $125.
The Free State Project educates the public about the benefits of liberty in New Hampshire, and has so far recruited more than 16,000 people sharing the libertarian philosophy to move to New Hampshire from the rest of the United States and several foreign countries.
