Entries in US Rep Carol Shea-Porter (103)



Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today challenged Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Governor Maggie Hassan, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter and Congresswoman Annie Kuster to stand with Vice President Joe Biden during his trip to the Granite State next week. Biden is scheduled to appear in Portsmouth on Wednesday.


"President Obama and Vice President Obama are running one of the most embarrassing and incompetent administrations in history, and their failed leadership is extremely unpopular in the Granite State. Senator Shaheen, Governor Hassan, Congresswoman Shea-Porter and Congresswoman Kuster have all have all ignored the will of their constituents and blindly championed the disastrous Obama-Biden agenda," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Shaheen, Hassan, Shea-Porter and Kuster should all embrace the Vice President while he's in New Hampshire with the same enthusiasm that they have embraced his failed policies."


In the latest WMUR/UNH poll, only 37% of voters approve of the job that Barack Obama is doing as president.


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."

Shea-Porter Continues to Prove She is out of Touch

Responding to a press release issued by Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter this morning, Jay Ruais, Campaign Manager for Frank Guinta, released the following statement:

"No doubt the Congresswoman's attempt to distract from her failed record in Congress was discussed at the California winery she visited with Nancy Pelosi to raise money for her campaign while we marched in the Londonderry Parade. It is unfortunate that while New Hampshire’s middle-class continues to struggle under the dual weight of ObamaCare and her economic policies, she continues to avoid offering a single solution to the myriad of issues facing the United States. In contrast, Frank Guinta has focused heavily on District specific issues, and offered real solutions to our health care problems, the state of our economy and more. We look forward to earning the nomination this fall, and returning this office to the people of New Hampshire.”

Shea-Porter Raising Money with Nancy Pelosi

It was reported yesterday that Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is on her way to California with former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The purpose of the event is to meet with top donors and other politicos.

As reported by Politico, this evening Congresswoman Shea-Porter will enjoy a cocktail and dinner reception with the owners of the HALL Winery.

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

"311,000 Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, as the squeeze on middle-class Granite Staters tightens. The border remains porous while conflicts in the Middle East, Russia and the Ukraine threaten to escalate even further. Instead of holding town halls with her constituents, the Congresswoman is hobnobbing with big money, liberal, special interest groups in wine country. Could the Congresswoman please tell us why she has chosen California over her constituents?"






Concord - It's been years since Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter held open town hall meetings with their constituents in New Hampshire. But that hasn't stopped them from leaving New Hampshire this week to attend high-end campaign events with lobbyists, fundraisers and special interest in South Carolina and California.


"Senator Shaheen and Congresswoman Shea-Porter have demonstrated that they are elitist Washington politicians would rather rub shoulders with millionaires instead of listening to middle class families at town hall meetings. They continue to thumb their noses at New Hampshire's tradition of open and accessible government because they are unwilling to defend their failed records and blind support for President Obama," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "If Shaheen and Shea-Porter had any respect for their constituents, they would hold a town hall meeting with their constituents before they ditch New Hampshire for another swanky, fundraising junket with the special interests that are bankrolling their campaigns."


Earlier this week, Shaheen attended a $1,000 dollar a head fundraiser in Columbia, South Carolina with Palmetto State politicians and lobbyists. When asked about she was in South Carolina instead of New Hampshire holding town hall meetings, Shaheen ignored questions and nervously ducked into a waiting car. According to the NHGOP's town hall ticker, it's been 716 days since Shaheen's last New Hampshire town hall meeting


Politico reports that Congresswoman Shea-Porter and other vulnerable Democrats will join liberal former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and radical billionaire Tom Steyer at a swanky gathering of high dollar donors in Napa Valley. Guests will attend an event at the home of the owners of Hall Winery, a "lunch and wine pairing" at the exclusive Quintessa Winery and a dinner and cocktail reception at Pelosi's home.


Governor Maggie Hassan and Congresswoman Annie Kuster have also refused to hold town hall meetings. Senator Kelly Ayotte has held numerous town halls across New Hampshire since taking office in 2011.
