Is Kuster standing?


The race for the NH Second Congressional district has begun. I think the first candidate to step forward is Atty. Ann Mclane Kuster. I don't know the candidate but I do know the Second Congressional District. I looked at the campaign website

"Creating and preserving good paying jobs, making quality health care affordable for all, and taking bold steps to develop clean energy are all positive changes we must make now for a better future for New Hampshire families."

This statement covers alot but is this what the Second Congressional District needs for representation? Then I started thinking about the possibility of Katrena Swett for Congress. Several years back Ms. Swett ran unsuccessfully for Congress she did a campaign swing through northern New Hampshire. I remember her being asked substantive questions about regional economic development and jobs, and all Swett seemed to be able to come up with is that she would support the creation of a national "volunteer job corps." This was while Americorps was still in its fledgling state.

Its early in this race but on this basis I think if it were a primary battle between Kuster and Swett that Kuster appears to be the stronger candidate. Again I don't know Atty. Kuster and what her responses would be to the issues that face New Hampshire.

But even if she would win the primary it will be a race against a strong Republican candidate a candidate I hope isn't Jennifer Horn.
