Guinta For Congress (CD1) - President Obama Stumps for Shea-Porter  

A Vote for Shea-Porter is a Vote for the Obama Agenda, Just ask the President!

MANCHESTER - At a speech in Chicago on Thursday, President Obama confirmed that "every single one" of his policies are on the ballot in New Hampshire.

"I am not on the ballot this fall. Michelle’s pretty happy about that. But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them," Obama stressed. “I’m not going to tell you who to vote for, although I suppose it’s kind of implied."

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"President Obama confirmed what  Granite Staters already knew; a vote for Congresswoman Shea-Porter is a vote for every single one of his policies. Despite Shea-Porter’s best efforts to deceive Granite Staters into thinking she agrees with their values, President Obama has made it abundantly clear that a vote for Shea-Porter is a vote of support for his failed agenda. From ObamaCare which has devastated the middle class, to trillions more in debt, and with fewer Americans working than at any time since 1978, this district deserves a representative who will serve their interests, not President Obama's failed agenda."

NHDP - Grandstanding Guinta’s Attack Stunt Falls Flat 

 

Former Congressman Won’t Allow Voters At So-Called Public Meetings
 

Manchester, NH - In Frank Guinta’s latest cynical attempt to hide the fact that he’s a pawn of DC lobbyists and special interests, he announced a series of so-called public kitchen table talks with much fanfare--and then refused to tell voters the time and location of these meetings.

“Frank Guinta claimed that these meetings would show he is accessible. Instead, they simply prove what we’ve known all along, that his policies are so toxic and extreme that he needs to hide behind political stunts," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Deputy Communications Director Bryan Lesswing. “Kelly Ayotte put it best: Frank Guinta is a grandstander, and this latest stunt exposes him yet again as a cynical career politician."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - On the Trail with Team Guinta  

 

From Frank's Desk

 

 

 

Happy Friday!

32 days!  That’s how much time we have left until Election Day. I know that with your hard work and continued support, we will be triumphant on November 4th! 

FIRST TV AD OF THE GENERAL ELECTION

My wife Morgan and mom Ginny discussed several of the health care challenges our family has overcome.  They went on to detail several initiatives I support for working class families. If you haven’t seen it on TV already, you can check it out HERE.  If you’re inclined to do so, please share with your friends on Facebook and Twitter!

ON THE TRAIL…

We were once again hard at work on the campaign trail this week, crisscrossing the District and meeting plenty of new faces!

I kicked off Saturday morning in Rochester knocking on doors and meeting voters with my good friend Andrew Hemingway.  We were met with a great response; I look forward to getting out there again this weekend!

From there, I made my way over to Manchester where I had a great time showing my support for the 2nd Amendment at the Manchester Gun Show and at the Friends of the NRA Dinner at the Radisson.

The Dover GOP field office opened Monday night and I was there for the ribbon cutting ceremony and to make some phone calls. Voter outreach is crucial to our success and the opening of the office will go a long way toward helping us win this November!

Education is a top issue of mine and I hear about it all the time on the campaign trail. On Tuesday afternoon I was at UNH with my friend and former colleague Congressman Aaron Schock talking to students about how we can reduce student loan debt and make college more affordable. 

And on Tuesday night I had a great group of supporters phone-banking at my office for an “Education Night” where we called voters talking about my support for a high-quality education system that works for the middle class and prepares our children for the jobs of the future.

I made the first stop of many “Kitchen Table Talks” on Wednesday night in Merrimack.  This initiative will allow us to delve more deeply into important topics and learn first-hand what’s on the minds of families. I had a great time talking to folks on topics spanning education, the economy, energy costs, foreign policy and health care.

I look forward to continuing these Talks around the district and laying out solutions to the problems we face.

VOLUNTEER OF THE WEEK: GREG MCCANN

Congrats to Greg McCann of Merrimack for being named volunteer of the week! Greg has been a tremendous asset to the campaign since day one – making phone calls, knocking on doors, spreading the word in his neighborhood, and much more! Greg helps out because, “Granite Staters need a voice in D.C. for the middle class, and Frank will be that voice for us.”

Thank you Greg! If you want to get involved in our campaign and be a Team Guinta volunteer, contact Trevor at 508-826-5135 or trevor@teamguinta.com.

See you on the trail!

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Guinta makes First Stop on "Kitchen Table Talk" Initiative  

Guinta Hears from Granite Staters in Merrimack

MANCHESTER - Frank Guinta joined a group of Granite Staters gathered at a home in Merrimack for the first of many "Kitchen Table Talks". 

As the title suggests, the idea behind this is to talk about the issues middle class families discuss at home, to hear directly from people who may feel their questions remain unanswered in today's soundbite driven political climate.  Guinta fielded questions from about fifteen folks on topics spanning education, the economy, energy costs, foreign policy and health care.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"These Kitchen Table Talks offer us the opportunity to delve deeply into issues and discuss solutions on how to get the middle class back the work, the need for an all-of-the-above energy policy, and a sensible replacement for ObamaCare.  It is imperative for a representative to be engaged, ask questions, seek and gather input.  Congresswoman Shea-Porter's stunning refusal to speak with Granite Staters given the challenges our nation faces at home and abroad is astonishing.  I look forward to continuing these Talks around the district and laying out solutions to the problems we face."

Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Granite Staters Blow out the Candles on ObamaCare  

 Year Since Its Disastrous Website Debut, Carol Shea-Porter Still Standing Up For ObamaCare

MANCHESTER – The ObamaCare website HealthCare.gov debuted one year ago today with a thunderous flop.

The website cost over $2 billion and was the latest in a long line of missteps in ObamaCare's short four year history.  As has been widely reported, New Hampshire families will likely see even higher premiums in 2015 on top of the considerable disruption this law has caused for thousands of Granite Staters. 

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"One year ago today, Granite Staters saw very clearly what a government-run healthcare system looks like. The failure of the ObamaCare website is nothing compared to the failure of the law to keep healthcare costs down and let families keep the plans they were promised. Carol Shea-Porter's inability to look at ObamaCare objectively, recognize its flaws and work to replace it with a program that works is devastating New Hampshire.  Her reflexive, knee-jerk support for Washington's interests over those of her constituency is not the representation Granite Staters deserve."
