NH Republican Caucus - Sen. Morse Secures Unanimous Republican Support for Senate Presidency

The New Hampshire Senate

Republican Majority Office

Looks forward to conversations with Senate Democrats ahead of next week’s vote

Concord, NH – Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Morse (R-Salem) has secured the unanimous support of the 13-member Republican Caucus in his bid to become the next Senate President.  A simple majority of the Senate’s 24 members is required to elect a successor to Senate President Bragdon when the body meets on September 3rd.

Senate Republicans met on Tuesday morning to discuss selecting a new Senate President.  Following the caucus, Sen. Morse said:  “I am honored to have the unanimous support of my fellow Republican Senators.  As under the leadership of President Bragdon, our caucus remains committed to responsibly managing state government while enacting policies that will encourage job growth and improve our economy.  I am humbled the caucus has entrusted me to lead as we continue those efforts.” 

“In the days ahead I look forward to talking with members of the Democratic Caucus in order to gain their support ahead of the Senate meeting next week,” continued Sen. Morse.  “As our work over the last year has shown us, there is much more that unites us than divides us, and by seeking to expand those areas of agreement, and reiterating my pledge to lead the Senate in an open, honest, and transparent manner, I am confident I can earn their votes next Tuesday.”

Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) said:  “As a small business owner, Sen. Morse understands how to manage and how to meet a payroll.  Equally as important, he understands the challenges facing our economy – its employers and its employees – and has a proven track record of championing legislation to ease those burdens and make New Hampshire a better place to live and work.  Those qualities, along with his unquestioned integrity and work ethic, make Sen. Morse the right person to lead the Senate at this important time.” 

Sen. Bradley continued, “It has been a true pleasure working with President Bragdon over the last three years.  All of us have appreciated his steadfast leadership, his commitment to ethics, and his sincere friendship during his time as Senate President.  I look forward to working with Sen. Morse as he fills the big shoes President Bragdon is leaving behind.”

Senate President Bragdon has announced he will call the Senate back into session on Tuesday, September 3rd at 10:00am in order for him to officially step down from his position and to give members the opportunity to elect a new president.

ICYMI: UL (8/2): NHGOP legislators take credit for balanced budget, no fee hikes

Republican legislative leaders took much of the credit for what they said was a balanced budget that funds the state's needs without new or increased taxes.

A GOP "budget roundtable" organized by the New Hampshire Republican State Committee at Manchester City Hall was aimed at "talking about the positive aspects of the budget," said Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro, "how we protected taxpayers, didn't raise a single fee or tax and how we lived within our means and did so while meeting the needs of the state and a way that should allow for economic growth. "In typical Live Free or Die fashion," Bradley said, "people came together."

Senate and House Republicans Discuss State Budget with Voters

The New Hampshire Senate

Republican Majority Office

Roundtable events in Franklin and Manchester focus on nuts and bolts of the spending plan

Manchester, NH – Senate and House budget writers today met with residents of Franklin and Manchester in roundtable style events to discuss the details of the state’s budget.

Facilitated by Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) and featuring Senate budget writers Chuck Morse (R-Salem) and Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith), as well as House Finance Committee members Ken Weyler (R-Kingston) and Lynn Ober (R-Hudson), the events were an opportunity for legislators to tout the budget’s successes while taking questions from an audience of local residents and area business owners.

The lawmakers noted the final budget was “very similar” to the budget recommended by the Senate Finance Committee.  The budget did not include tax or fee increases and restrained growth to a modest three percent over the next two years.

“We knew this budget would be difficult to build,” said Sen. Morse, “though the economy has shown some signs of improvement, we knew it was not time to count on unrealistic new sources of revenue from tax increases or a booming economy.  At the same time, we heard from the voters that we needed to invest in some important areas, which is why you saw the Senate budget increase funding to the University and Community College Systems by $100 million, and increase support to critical safety net programs like CHINS and others in the Department of Health and Human Services.”

Today’s events were hosted by Franklin Mayor Ken Merrifield and Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas.  Similar roundtable events are being developed for other areas of the state over the next several months.

Republican party of NH - Weekly Newsletter 

Dear Friends, 
 
This week, WMUR-TV found that eight peopleare registered to vote at the home of State Senator Martha Fuller Clark. Senator Fuller Clark knew that political workers who parachute into New Hampshire for several weeks to work on campaigns did not have the 'intent to maintain' a presence in our state, as is required under our Domicile law.  

It is outrageous that a senior Democrat lawmaker would let people use her home to potentially break New Hampshire laws and promote voter fraud.  We must continue to stand together and fight to protect the integrity of the ballot box in New Hampshire.

Best Wishes,

ICYMI: WMUR-TV: Concerns raised about voter eligibility

"On the heels of a repeal of the voter ID law in New Hampshire, there are growing calls to review who is eligible to cast a ballot in the Granite State.

Exceptions are in place for nonresidents who are students, but when it comes to the domicile requirement, some wonder if the system is being abused."

 




ICYMI: Union Leader (7/24): More voter fraud: Abusing the domicile affidavit

Joe Biden's niece Alana Biden voted in New Hampshire in the 2012 presidential election. She is not a Granite Stater. She was staying in Manchester temporarily to campaign for President Obama. From 2008 through 2012, five people not related to Sen. Martha Fuller Clark, D-Portsmouth, voted here, with Fuller Clark's home listed as their domicile. They no longer live there. How surprising.
