SPECIAL ELECTION UPDATE
On Tuesday, June 2nd, Randy Wagoner will square off with a “tax and spend” Democrat in the Lebanon House special election. We need your support to elect Randy and send another fiscally responsible Republican to Concord. Please contact BJ at 225-9341 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help. Click here for more info on Randy’s campaign.
On April 28, Marilinda Garcia cruised to victory in the Salem/Windham House special election, winning 62% to 38%. Marilinda was a fantastic candidate and she ran a strong campaign that focused on traditional New Hampshire values and issues.
Marilinda’s overwhelming victory was made possible by the numerous volunteers who knocked on doors, held signs, and made phone calls for her campaign.
We hope to keep our momentum going and help Randy Wagoner win his special election in Lebanon. Please Call BJ at 225-9241 Or Email Him At BJ@nhgop.org To Get Involved In Randy’s Campaign.
TELEGRAPH: SUNUNU HAS “SENSIBLE STRATEGY” FOR GOP
An editorial in the Nashua Telegraph last week discussed Governor Sununu’s “sensible strategy” for the NHGOP that focuses on fiscal responsibility and sound management of state government. The Governor specifically highlighted the Democrats’ failed stewardship of the state retirement system.
“Sununu’s strategy as chief tactician for the state Republican Party is emerging. He makes a good case for the fact that the state retirement system is headed for collapse due largely to the inability of Democratic governors for the past 12 years to engage the state employees unions in hard bargaining,” writes the Telegraph. “And he is right to point out Gov. Lynch’s lack of leadership on that issue.”
After years of mismanagement, the retirement system now has $7 billion dollars in unfunded liabilities.
FOSTERS: NHGOP “ON THE RISE”
Foster’s Daily Democrat reports that the New Hampshire Republican Party is gaining momentum after two “landslide” victories in the recent Senate and House special elections.
“With apologies to Mark Twain, the death of the Republican Party in New Hampshire looks as if it may have been greatly exaggerated,” writes Fosters in an editorial in today’s paper. “With some impressive special election wins to their credit, Granite State Republicans are showing signs of revival.”
The editorial also states that these “significant” victories should “serve as a call to other aspiring Republican leaders,” to get involved with the Party and run for office in 2010.
UNION LEADER: DEMS “BEST BE WARY” OF REPUBLICAN VICTORIES
The Union Leader writes in a recent editorial that the radical Democrat leadership should take note of two recent Republican special election victories.
“Since the far-left agenda of the New Hampshire Democratic Party has been revealed in this legislative session, there have been two special elections – one in the Senate, one in the House. Republicans won both by big margins,” writes the Union Leader.
The editorial also states that the victories may indicate “that the Democratic overreaching in Concord has already inspired a conservative backlash.”
