Innis For Congress (CD1) - Stella Scamman statement on "inappropriate" Guinta TV ad 


Frank Guinta's First TV Ad Highlights Prominent Dan Innis Supporter

Manchester, NH - Today, Dan Innis supporter Stella Scamman released the following statement in response to Frank Guinta using footage of her in his first television commercial for this election cycle.

"Frank Guinta knows very well that I am a strong 100 percent supporter of Dan Innis for Congress. Using this footage of me from an old campaign ad is inappropriate," said Stella Scamman. "Dan Innis is a solutions based Republican with a solid business and education background who will use his leadership skills to grow our economy and tackle the challenges we face in Washington. Dan is a fresh voice that our Republican Party needs to win the election in November. That is why I am asking Frank to remove me from his advertisement."

Stella Scamman served 3 terms in the New Hampshire House and is active with the Seacoast Republican Women. Her husband Doug Scamman served 13 terms as a New Hampshire state representative, including 3 terms as Speaker of the House.

The Scammans endorsed Dan Innis in April.

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Taxpayer Advocacy Organization Endorses Frank Guinta  

Bedford Taxpayers Association Endorses Frank Guinta

The Bedford Taxpayers Association, an organization committed to the principles of limited government, lower taxes, and economic growth, has endorsed Frank Guinta in his race for Congress.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“I am honored to receive the support of this organization. As Mayor of Manchester, I worked with Democrats, Republicans and Independents to bring the Tax Cap to the City, while cutting spending, balancing budgets and improving city services. I will bring this same fiscally conservative approach to Washington to implement a Balanced Budget Amendment, reduce our debt and deficit while working to repeal and replace ObamaCare with market based reforms that put you in charge. I hope to earn your vote this fall!”


Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Shea-Porter’s Charade: Company Does Not Support Re-election

Shea-Porter’s Attempt to find Support in the
Business Community Falls Short

 This week, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter was endorsed by the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce. KRL Bantry Components, Inc. located here in Manchester, is a Member of the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce.

On July 11, the owner of the company, Verna Perry, was released as a supporter of Team Guinta. This was the 19th of 26 consecutive endorsement lists that Team Guinta has released this year.

KRL Bantry Components, Inc. is one of more than 100 small businesses that have endorsed Frank Guinta’s candidacy. Neither the company, nor its owner, are supporting Congresswoman Shea-Porter’s reelection.

Verna Perry released the following statement:

"I have long supported Frank Guinta because he has the business expertise, leadership skills and economic policies that will revive our state and nation. Middle class Granite Staters continue to struggle under the dual weight of ObamaCare and Obamanomics, Carol Shea-Porter's blind allegiance to President Obama is costing New Hampshire dearly. Granite Staters would be well served in sending Frank Guinta to Washington to fight on our behalf."


Guinta For Congress (CD1) - President Informs the World: "We Don't Have a Strategy"

Will Anyone Lead?

This afternoon, President Obama held a press conference to discuss several of the ongoing crises around the word. During the press conference, he stated "we don't have a strategy" with regard to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.

Jay Ruais, Campaign Manager for Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"The lack of a coherent strategy, or for that matter any strategy, to deal with an escalating threat of this nature is grossly negligent. While the White House continues its fishing expedition for the next red herring to distract the public from these crises, it is equally troubling that Congresswoman Shea-Porter refuses to demand any accountability. The Congresswoman sits on the House Armed Services Committee, when will Granite Staters see the leadership our state and nation deserve?”
