Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Is Boston in NH-CD1?  

Shea-Porter's Neglect of Granite Staters Continues

BOSTON - Congresswoman Shea-Porter will visit here tonight as she continues to duck, dodge, and delay any opportunity to speak with Granite Staters.

The Congresswoman will be attending a swanky fundraiser at a private Boston location with Vice President Joe Biden.

What: Carol Shea-Porter Fundraiser with Vice President Joe Biden

When: Today, October 29, 2014

Where: Boston, Massachusetts

 

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

 

"While I will be in Merrimack and Bedford today talking to Granite Staters and touring a small business, the Congresswoman will be out of state  at a secret reception with the Vice President. Evidently, the Congresswoman enjoys fundraising in Napa Valley and Boston with Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden more than she enjoys holding town halls in New Hampshire. Granite Staters deserve an independent voice for New Hampshire values, not a rubber stamp for President Obama."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Shea-Porter's Failed Record Takes Center Stage  

Guinta Dominates, Shea-Porter Doubles Down on Deception

MANCHESTER – Tonight’s WMUR Debate at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics continued to reveal clear contrasts between Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter and Frank Guinta.

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

“Congresswoman Shea-Porter was on the defensive from the get-go. Unable to defend her support of President Obama, the free perks she's received at taxpayer expense, and her exemption from ObamaCare, she was forced to resort to personal attacks to distract Granite Staters from her record.  Tonight’s debate made it abundantly clear that Shea-Porter is out for two people: herself and President Obama. Frank is the clear choice for New Hampshire families looking for an independent voice who will work to balance budgets, strengthen the middle class, and promote patient-centered, market-driven health care reforms.”

NHDP Statement on last night’s NH-01 Granite State Debate 

Manchester, NH – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement after tonight’s NH-01 Granite State Debate:

“In tonight’s Granite State Debate, Tea Party former congressman Frank Guinta once again dodged his extreme ultra-conservative record that includes pushing to cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans and big oil companies at the expense of middle-class families, cut Social Security and privatize Medicare. Frank Guinta showed how out of touch he is with New Hampshire voters by opposing a woman’s right to choose even to save the life of the mother. Guinta also doubled down on his desperate attempts to mislead voters in order to cover-up his do-nothing record in Congress.”

“Frank Guinta can't run from his dismal record and extreme Tea Party views, which is why voters will continue to support Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s proven record of standing up for Granite State middle-class families and supporting economic growth in New Hampshire.”

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - She's What? Shea-Porter's Stunning ObamaCare Admission  

Shea-Porter Proves She's Out of Touch, Doubles Down on ObamaCare

MANCHESTER – In last night’s WMUR Debate, Congresswoman Shea-Porter named ObamaCare as her proudest accomplishment.  

KATHLEEN RONAYNE: “Can you tell us about one piece of legislation that you sponsored and led the way on that’s made a difference for New Hampshire?”

SHEA-PORTER: “Yes, I can. I’m very, very proud of the health care law.”

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"Though the overwhelming majority of Granite Staters disapprove of ObamaCare, she defends the law.  Though 70,000 more Granite Staters could stand to lose their health insurance, she defends the law.  Though 17,000 Granite Staters will pay $23 million in fines next year, she defends the law.  Though access is decreasing while costs are increasing, she defends the law. Granite Staters deserve better.  We deserve a patient-centered, market-driven heath care approach, not the Obama/Shea-Porter one-size-fits-all failure that is ObamaCare."

NHGOP STATEMENT ON TONIGHT'S WMUR 1ST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT DEBATE 

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


 
"Tonight's debate reiterated the fact that Congresswoman Shea-Porter is completely out of touch with New Hampshire. She continues to stand in lockstep with President Obama, even saying that she is "very proud" of ObamaCare, which forced 22,000 Granite State residents to lose their health insurance, countless more to lose their doctors, their jobs and their hope for a better future. Congresswoman Shea-Porter is wrong for New Hampshire, and voters will replace her with Frank Guinta on Election Day."
