NHDP Statement on Tonight’s 1st Congressional Debate 

Manchester, NH – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement after tonight’s New Hampshire 1st Congressional debate:

“Tonight's debate featured Tea Party former congressman Frank Guinta reiterate his extreme Koch Brothers agenda that includes cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans and big oil companies at the expense of middle-class families, cutting Social Security and privatizing Medicare, and opposing a woman's right to choose even to save the life of the mother."

“Granite State voters will reject Frank Guinta’s out-of-touch Tea Party views and his mystery-money scandals, and continue to support Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s proven record of standing up for middle-class priorities and supporting economic growth here in New Hampshire.”



Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Frank Guinta's victory in tonight's NH1 News Debate:


"Tonight, Frank Guinta clearly demonstrated why he is the right choice to represent New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District. He will work hard to cut taxes, balance budgets and fight the big government regulations that are hurting middle class families in New Hampshire. Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter cannot defend the fact that she has marched in lockstep with Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, blindly supporting their failed agenda that is hurting New Hampshire families. The 1st District deserves better than a Congresswoman who hides from her constituents, choosing to spend her time instead with Washington's liberal elite, and voters will choose Frank Guinta to represent them on November 4."

Guinta Touts Support for Middle Class, Shea-Porter for Obama

MANCHESTER – Tonight’s debate hosted by NH1 provided a clear contrast between Frank Guinta’s record of support for middle class New Hampshire families and Congresswoman Shea-Porter’s unwavering support for President Obama.

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

“From the onset, Congresswoman Shea-Porter desperately attempted to attack Frank and distract Granite Staters from her support for ObamaCare and the President’s economic agenda. While Shea-Porter was doubling down on the President’s failed policies, Frank was promoting patient-centered health care reform and outlining his plan to get the economy moving again by getting our spending under control and balancing our budget. 

Despite Shea-Porter’s best efforts to deceive Granite Staters into thinking she agrees with their values, this debate made it abundantly clear that a vote for Shea-Porter is a vote against New Hampshire families and a vote for the President’s out of touch, liberal agenda of ObamaCare, reckless spending, higher debt, and more taxes.”

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Team Guinta Declares Victory in Debate  

Guinta Stands with the Middle Class, Shea-Porter Stands with President Obama

MANCHESTER – This morning’s debate hosted by the Mount Washington Valley Economic Council at the North Conway Grand Hotel between Frank Guinta and Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter provided a clear contrast between Guinta’s pro-growth, pro-middle class policies and Shea-Porter’s extreme, big-government agenda. 

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

“Frank Guinta dominated this morning’s debate from start to finish. He showed that he is a strong consistent voice that will fight ObamaCare, work for our veterans, and promote economic polices that get the middle class back to work. Shea-Porter, on the other hand, proved that she will continue to be a partisan rubber stamp for President Obama. Shea-Porter is radically out of touch with New Hampshire families, and Granite Staters simply cannot afford Shea-Porter’s extreme, big-government, tax-and-spend agenda any longer. After this morning’s debate, it’s clear that Frank Guinta is the only candidate who can take our proven New Hampshire values to Washington and get things fixed.”
