As all of you are painfully aware there is a primary vote tomorrow. There will be Republican and Democratic primaries. This primary has become very controversial. We have the five people running for Governor. The Governor race has been a very hot topic and I think many people have already made up their mind when it comes to that. The media has boiled the Democratic Candidates to Jackie vs Maggie. They also have made the entire race based around Maggie taking the ‘No Tax Pledge’ and Jackie refusing by saying ‘we need to have a grown up conversation about revenue’.
As for the Republican side, both Ovide and Kevin Smith are going around pushing the same GOP Platform that proceeded to drive our national economy in to recession. They both have plans to cut taxes, and cut the budget, and miraculously this will create jobs. They are also saying that we need a Right To Work (for less) bill to create more jobs. All of which are wrong. Both of these candidates will be bad for the middle class families in New Hampshire.
The NH House races has also taken very nasty turn. The New Hampshire Liberty Caucus and Americans For Prosperity have sent out mailers to Granite Staters telling them not to vote for candidates who oppose Right To Work (for less) legislation. I have even heard rumors from a few sources that people were ‘lit dropping’ this information all over southern NH and the seacoast. They are specifically targeting the 40 Republicans who are currently elected as State Rep who are also running in primaries this week.
It does not matter which side of the aisle you favor, the fact is that we need people from both sides to oppose Right To Work (for less) in order to block any future attempts by Bill O’Brien and his followers.
If you plan to pull a Republican ballot for the primary, take a minute to see who stood with middle class families over the last two years. Check to see who voted against Right To Work. We need to ensure that they make it through the primary.
The most important thing to remember is to GET OUT AND VOTE. Your vote is very important and especially important in these small state elections. Your vote matters and your vote makes a difference.
