    The skeptical view of leaking these is that it smacks of what desperate campaigns do when they know they're losing. Remember Tom Barrett? He wanted the world to believe, contra nearly all of the independent polling, that he and Scott Walker were dead even two weeks out from the recall election this summer. That made perfect sense in his case: He was behind, everyone knew it, and he needed a morale booster to keep his base from giving up. How is that analogous to Romney's situation? Is there any Republican anywhere who's given up and thinks O's slight lead in...

    No one doubts Michael Barone's credentials; the guy has established himself as the pre-eminent political nuts and bolts expert in the country. If you watch Barone on election night, you will realize he knows the politics of America down to the key individual counties in each state. His encyclopedic mind recognizes when a state's vote is trending toward one candidate or another early on, and while he is carefully not to predict a winner, he leaves the viewer with little doubt as to who is in trouble and who isn't. But it makes me wonder when he reels off a...
  • Big win for carry licensing — misdemeanor pot conviction no basis to deny (NH)

    Pro-Gun New Hampshire General Counsel, attorney Evan Nappen, has won a significant court case involving concealed carry licensing in New Hampshire. His client was denied a NH non-resident carry license solely due to a 34 year old misdemeanor marijuana conviction received when he was 18 years old. The State was stubbornly enforcing their administrative rule (which, by the way, has no basis in law) that makes any misdemeanor conviction for drugs an automatic denial. In the article published a week ago on this website, attorney Nappen announced a public hearing on changing the NH Department of Safety’s rules for denial...

President Barack Obama holds narrow leads over Mitt Romney in the battleground states of Wisconsin, New Hampshire and Iowa as the candidates enter the campaign's final days, new polling shows. In Wisconsin and New Hampshire, Mr. Romney remains well within striking distance, despite signs that opinions are hardening and the pool of undecided voters remains small, according to new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist Poll surveys. Mr. Obama holds a 49%-46% lead in Wisconsin among...

    Tuesday, October 30, 2012 Four years after backing Obama, The Telegraph endorses Mitt Romney for president By ERIN PLACE Staff Writer HUDSON – Four years after endorsing then-Sen. Barack Obama for president, The Telegraph of Nashua has backed the president’s Republican opponent former Gov. Mitt Romney. The newspaper’s editorial board said it did not come to this decision lightly. In Wednesday’s editorial on the endorsement of the former Massachusetts governor, it is revealed there were “several hours of spirited debate” regarding the endorsement. In January, The Telegraph endorsed Romney as the GOP candidate.
  • Mitt Romney for president

    10/30/2012 3:44:33 PM PDT · by Perdogg · 10 replies
    Four years ago, with little hesitation, we endorsed then-Sen. Barack Obama to become the 44th president of the United States, saying it was a time for “new leadership, a new approach to governing, a new way of conducting the people’s business.” So the basic question facing The Telegraph editorial board when it met last week came down to this: Did the former Illinois senator do enough to live up to those admittedly high expectations to warrant a second term? After several hours of spirited debate, not unlike conversations taking place in kitchens and living rooms across America, we reached a...
  • Obama visits Teamsters in New Hampshire

    NASHUA, N.H. – President Obama arrived in this northeastern swing state for the second time in nine days and quickly made a pit stop at a Teamsters office in Manchester. A group of about 60 members greeted the president with loud cheers and chants of “fired up, ready to go!” Obama addressed the group briefly, telling them the state will be “very important” on Election Day on Nov. 6. “We don’t know how this thing is going to play out,” Obama said. “These four electoral votes right here could make the difference.”
  • Mr. President, who let them die?

    (Note: With the President due to campaign in Nashua today, his answer to our Editorial Page Director Andrew Cline's question, if he has one, would no doubt be of great interest to New Hampshire voters.) Every time President Obama is asked why the U.S. embassy in Libya was denied its multiple requests for extra security at the Benghazi consulate before Sept. 11, he changes the subject. No wonder, as yesterday it was reported that not only were previous requests for extra security denied, but three additional requests on the night of the attack also were denied.

    New Hampshire Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte has cancelled her plan to campaign with Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, who said that when a woman becomes pregnant during a rape, "that's something God intended." Mourdock said on Wednesday said he abhors rape and meant only that God creates life. But Ayotte's spokesman, Jeff Grappone, said that the senator disagrees with Mourdock's comments, which do not represent her views. Ayotte was scheduled to campaign with Mourdock on Wednesday, but canceled her trip and is in New Hampshire instead.

    The presidential race in New Hampshire remains neck-and-neck, with Mitt Romney stretching to a two-point lead. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely New Hampshire Voters, taken the night after the final presidential debate, finds Romney earning 50% support, while President Obama has 48% of the vote. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, and another one percent (1%) is undecided. This New Hampshire survey of 500 Likely Voters was conducted on October 23, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports.

  • Obama's Debates: Where Was The Beef?

    Obama's debates: Where was the beef? EDITORIAL The presidential debates are over and they might well have changed America’s opinion of Barack Obama. What America saw in its President was not a statesman who confidently deflected his challenger’s criticisms with the shield of truth, but a politician who dodged, prevaricated, misled and slung mud — all behaviors this President once said he stood firmly against. In the first debate, Obama was nearly absent save for the plodding, desperate misrepresentations on which he relied. In the second debate, Obama tried sophomorically to enlist Big Bird to do his fighting for him....

    Boca Raton, Florida (CNN) - Restore Our Future, the Super PAC supporting Mitt Romney, has reserved television airtime in Maine beginning later this week, according to a Republican source tracking media buys. The group plans to air $300,000 worth of ads in the Bangor, Presque Isle and Portland-Auburn markets, the latter of which also covers parts of New Hampshire, from Oct. 25 through Oct. 29. The move suggests Romney allies see Maine's 2nd Congressional District, which encompasses the state's northern reaches, as fertile ground for the Republican. Maine allocates its electoral votes by congressional district, and winning a single vote...

    BOCA RATON, Fla. — The two presidential campaigns are sounding sharply different notes about how they can get to 270 electoral votes, but beneath the post-debate bravado from both sides there is a rough consensus about the shape of the race in its final two weeks. Top strategists for both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney flooded the media center following the third and final presidential debate here Monday night, and made clear they will be primarily fighting over seven states and will spend most of their time and money in them between now and Nov. 6. The main battlegrounds: Ohio,...

    Seen here first, this ad, produced by the advocacy group Checks and Balances for Economic Growth, was funded with what a spokesperson called “a significant statewide buy in Ohio.” The ad calls out incumbent Ohio Democrat Sen. Sherrod Brown for his claim that there was no “War on Coal.” Brown made this statement during an Oct. 15 debate with his GOP challenger Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel.
