hopefully there are other candidates. Four others are listed at this link with my comments ... I do not claim to be fully informed on these 4, but here goes:
Frank Guinta (R) - Manchester Mayor ... enjoys support from the Right.
Steve Merrill (R) - Ex-Governor & Ex-Attorney General ... conservative, but has his detractors.
Tom Rath (R) - Ex-Attorney General, Ex-RNC Member ... can we call him a RINO? not a movement conservatative.
John Stephen (R) ... strong support from pro-lifers. Doubtful he could get the nomination for Senate. Hopefully, he will be the next congressman.
To: campaignPete R-CT
Kelly Ayotte (R)- Current Attorney General/Pro-Life/Conservative
John Sununu (R)- Fmr. Senator/Libertarian leaning Republican
I would push for either one of them. Sununu has name recognition, and while he bats .500 against Jeanne Shaheen, he has never lost an election to a non-ultra popular Former Governor. He can raise money and everyone in NH knows his family.
Kelly Ayotte is the future of the party in NH, and I think is waiting for the Governor's Office to open up, but would be a fascinating and attractive candidate for this seat as well.
