Guinta For Congress (CD1) - We need Frank!

 

Friend,

 

Our state has a long history of American leaders who have fought for our rights and freedoms.

Frank Guinta is one of these leaders.

He has already represented our state with pride in Congress. Now he needs to return so he can continue his work with me to protect New Hampshire’s future.

He only has 2 days to make it happen – and that’s only going to happen with your help.

I need you to join me in standing with Frank to help him with the urgently needed resources to win this race.

He needs our help so that every voter can know that Frank will stand for New Hampshire’s voice.

Frank can win, but it’s going to take our help.

Can you contribute right now?

He only has 2 days until his FINAL deadline before Election Day.

Every dollar Frank receives goes to running ads, knocking on doors, and telling more New Hampshire voters why he’s what we need.

Please don’t wait. Together we can be sure to help Frank to victory on Election Day.

Chip in $50, $25 or even just $10 now to help Frank to victory on Election Day.

Thank you,

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Under Increasingly Grave Threat  

From Frank's Desk

Friend,

...That's how Politico characterized my opponent's position going into the final stretch, "under increasingly grave threat." This race cannot be won without your support though. 

Even better, the National Journal just released their list of the House Districts most likely to flip this fall, and guess what? They said "Shea-Porter is the most vulnerable incumbent in the country"!!! 

Long story short: With your help, we can win this.

We have to keep pushing forward and growing our team. Polls close in less than 27 days, we're going to need all hands on deck.

We can't take anything for granted though, she has the support of millions of dollars worth of liberal special interest groups, lobbyist and PAC money behind her. The more they label her as vulnerable, the more desperate her attacks will grow.  

Help us fight back.

Will you do your part and contribute $10, $35, $100, or even $250 TODAY?

Thanks for standing with us. With your help, we’re going to retire Shea-Porter this November.

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Where's Carol's Compass? Ms. Shea-Porter goes to Washington, Never Returns.

State Senator Lou D’Allesandro Calls Out Shea-Porter for Hiding from Constituents

MANCHESTER – During an interview this morning with Jack Heath on WGIR, State Senator Lou D’Allesandro (D-Manchester) expressed his frustration with Congresswoman Shea-Porter’s neglect of her constituents in the largest city in the First District, Manchester.

Listen to the WGIR conversation here.

D'Allesandro: "Retail politics is the name of the game...If that disappears, Jack, I think the nature of democracy disappears - it's that one on one contact, face to face, talking to people, we'll be come an advertising nation...It's taken that part of politics and moved it to the side, and I'm very discouraged about that"

Heath: "You do events with Ann Kuster and Carol Shea-Porter, do you wish they were out there more?"

D'Allesandro: "Yes. I wish Carol Shea-Porter were in Manchester more, I haven't seen her in Manchester. Manchester is the heart of the first congressional district. I want to see her more"

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

“Congresswoman Shea-Porter has literally and figuratively lost her compass. The Congresswoman has been feeling the heat from the constituents that she’s been hiding from, and now she’s feeling it from prominent members of her own party. The Congresswoman can’t find her way to Manchester and she can’t find it within herself to vote with her district – from her steadfast support for ObamaCare to increasing taxes and spending, she has been a rubber stamp for President Obama rather than the independent voice New Hampshire needs.”

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - No one gets a "Golden Ticket" to Shea-Porter's Alleged Open Forums

As Middle Class Struggles, Shea-Porter is Nowhere to be Found

MANCHESTER – This morning, Frank Guinta was with Jack Heath on WGIR, an event initially slated to be a debate between him and Congresswoman Shea-Porter. The Congresswoman declined to attend.

She has also failed to accept a debate invitation from New England College. Additionally, she has repeatedly refused to hold a public town hall meeting since the beginning of her term in 2013. Recently, the Congresswoman released a list of alleged public town halls that she held, including one that supposedly occurred in Hooksett.

Don Wintertown, a Town Councilor from Hooksett, released the following statement:

“As an elected Town Councilor in Hooksett I understand the importance of outreach and interaction with constituents. I am very disappointed in the representation from Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter that her tour of GE Aviation in Hooksett on June 13, 2014 is considered a town hall meeting. While it is important that the Congresswoman tour local business facilities, meet employees and discuss their issues, it is incorrect to call this a town hall meeting as it was a closed meeting at a private facility behind barbed wire fence and with security guards at all entrances for an event exclusively for screened employees. I have tried to work with the Congresswoman on a personal issue, and would have thought and expected to be notified of a town hall meeting both as a constituent and a Town Councilor. All my constituents deserve access to OPEN town hall meetings as does the entire First Congressional District.”

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“In addition to her refusal to meet with Granite Staters, the most disheartening aspect of this is that she's ignoring the most fundamental responsibility of her office, to help those in need. Those that seek and hold office have the obligation to be responsive, to put politics aside, to care for those they've been elected to serve. Time and time again, she has failed to provide for her district and broken the public's trust. At a time when we face so many challenges, New Hampshire deserves a leader who will seek input, be collaborative, incorporate our ideas, and most importantly, listen. Shea-Porter's record is the antithesis of this."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Granite Staters are Screaming in a Soundproof Booth  

Ignoring the Will of Her Constituents, Shea-Porter
Reiterates Support for ObamaCare

MANCHESTER – At an interview with Josh McElveen of WMUR on Sunday, Congresswoman Shea-Porter proudly defended her vote on ObamaCare despite “all the problems” caused for Granite Staters.

MCELVEEN: “Let’s talk about an anniversary that just passed… and that’s the Affordable Care Act one year implementation. I know you hate it when I ask this question… Knowing what you know now, hindsight being what it always is, all the problems that were had, if you could make the same vote again, would you make it?”

SHEA-PORTER: “Yes, I would.”

Please watch the exchange HERE.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"A clear majority of Granite Staters oppose the Affordable Care Act because it is not working for New Hampshire. Seemingly every day another report comes to light detailing waste, fraud, abuse or government incompetence. From Politifact's Lie of the Year that "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it," to the promise that costs would decrease by $2,500 per family, to the pledge that the economy wouldn't suffer, she is consistently proven wrong. Granite Staters might as well be screaming in a soundproof booth because Congresswoman Shea-Porter still refuses to listen. We deserve a health care plan and a Representative that works for us."
