(Manchester – November 1, 2012) In case you missed it, the momentum for Team Guinta continued today. As reported by the Portsmouth Patch, there was a meeting of the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce this morning to discuss the upcoming election. At it, three of the state’s “foremost political experts” made the prediction that “U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta, R-NH, will defeat Democrat First Congressional candidate Carol Shea-Porter” on Election Day.

WMUR political analyst and author of WMUR
 Political Scoop James Pindell moderated the three-member panel that was reported by the press to included himself, former Portsmouth Mayor Steve Marchand and Republican analyst Alicia Preston. 

The full article in the Portsmouth Patch can be read here:

This follows a prediction from Larry Sabato who moved NH-01 from ‘toss-up’ to ‘leans GOP’ last week in an article stating his prediction that Republicans will maintain control of the House of Representatives. It also follows the most recent UNH poll that showed Guinta leading Shea-Porter in the race for Congress in NH-01.

Shea-Porter Statement on Susan B. Anthony Guinta Endorsement 

New Hampshire-  Today, Carol Shea-Porter releasedthe following statement following the Susan B. Anthony List endorsement of Congressman Guinta. The President of the group stated, “He is an ardent defender of the unborn and their mothers and has been a strong pro-life partner in Washington.”

Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement.

“Congressman Frank Guinta’s chilling position to let a woman die rather than to terminate a life threatening pregnancy is being ‘honored’ with an endorsement from the Susan B. Anthony group.  Even the National Right to Life disagrees with Guinta’s extremism.  They would let women live.”


*“In response to two questions on abortion, Guinta said he is pro life, and, were a repeal to Roe v. Wade come up while he was serving in Congress, he would vote for a no-holds barred ban on abortion with "no exceptions.”


Link to Calen Frett’s uploaded questionnaire.  Relevant statement from NRLC: "The NRLC believes that unborn children should be protected by law, and that abortion should be permitted only when necessary to prevent the death of the mother."



Shea-Porter For Congress - Where should Guinta be?

New Hampshire-  Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement following Congressman Guinta’s appearance at a press conference today. 

“My position is that there is no need to pass a constitutional amendment because no one is proposing a state income tax.  However, the real question is: Why is Congressman Frank Guinta hanging around the State Capitol?  Shouldn’t he be at the Federal Capitol, fixing the mess he left us in and stopping us from going over the fiscal cliff he and his tea party colleagues created?”



Guinta For Congress - Shea-Porter says ban on NH income tax unnecessary


(Manchester – November 1, 2012) For months, former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter has been silent on her position regarding a state income tax. This afternoon, after pressure from New Hampshire press, Shea-Porter finally responded. Sadly for taxpayers though, Carol Shea-Porter stayed true to her extreme partisan allies and refused to support the New Hampshire advantage and stated to the Concord Monitor that the amendment banning an income tax in our state “is unnecessary.” As reported by the newspaper, Shea-Porter went on to say “my position is that there is no need to pass a constitutional amendment because no one is proposing a state income tax.” You can read the Concord Monitor story here.

Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Guinta for Congress released the following statement:

“Just as Carol Shea-Porter refused to listen to her constituents when it came to Obamacare, a national energy tax, or even the wasteful stimulus, the former Congresswoman once again has taken the side of the extreme partisan wing of her party rather than New Hampshire taxpayers.

“Granite Staters have rejected the notion of a broad based tax that would destroy the New Hampshire advantage at every turn. However, once again, Shea-Porter has refused to listen to the New Hampshire voters she’s supposed to represent and has sided with the ultra-partisan wing of her party instead.”
