    We had a great tea party on Manchester, New Hampshire this evening. I would estimate the crowd at close to (if not over) 1000 patriots. On hand were Mayor Frank Guinta of Manchester, the mayor of Franklin, NH, local sports radio celebrity Charlie Sherman, and Charles Arlinghaus of the NH Union Leader, among others. I saw no sign of "disruptors" anywhere. Instead a throng of patriots gathered to launch an effort whose importance cannot be overestimated, but whose vitality will be determined by our individual involvement and commitment. Pictures begin with my comment below.

    The Union Leader/Sunday News ^ | December 7, 2008 | John di Staso
    Ending several weeks of speculation, former Gov. John H. Sununu has made it official: He will try to become the next leader of the state's Republicans. Charging that "Democrats are ruining New Hampshire," Sununu told the New Hampshire Sunday News he has decided to become a candidate for chairman of the Republican State Committee. Current Chairman Fergus Cullen won't seek another term when the state committee meets in January to elect officers. "I am going to step aside and support him," Cullen said. "He's clearly extraordinarily qualified to do the job." There are currently no other candidates for the post.

    Manchester Union Leader ^ | November 22, 2008 | John DiStaso
    As New Hampshire Republicans search for a way to rebound from two consecutive devastating defeats in federal and state elections, former three-term Gov. John H. Sununu says he is open to the possibility of leading them.Two decades after he was the state's chief executive and then-President George H.W. Bush's chief of staff, Sununu is "reluctantly considering" becoming a candidate for chairman of the New Hampshire Republican State Committee, he told the New Hampshire Union Leader yesterday."People have asked me to consider that," he said in a telephone interview from his Salem office. "It is clearly an insane idea, but...
  • Hey, don't blame Massachusetts

    The Union-Leader ^ | John DiStaso
    Memo to New Hampshire Republicans: Don't blame Massachusetts. New Hampshire's apparent shift from Republican "red" to Democratic "blue" can be primarily attributed to moderates and liberals who have moved to the state from throughout the Northeast, not just the Bay State, according to a University of New Hampshire political science professor. In fact, the area of the state in which Massachusetts transplants have primarily settled remains red, although it's not as red as it used to be. UNH Associate Political Science Professor Andrew Smith says the conventional wisdom that blames --or credits, depending on one's point of view --Massachusetts transplants...

    Now! Hampshire ^ | 11/06/2008 | Patrick Hynes
    John Sununu will no longer be a U.S. Senator come January after having lost his re-election bid against former New Hampshire Gov. Jeanne Shaheen on November 4th. But he might be the Chairman of the Republican National Committee if some of his supporters have anything to say about it. A group of Republican officials and operatives plan to launch a Draft Sununu for RNC Chairman committee as early as Friday, two Republican sources tell Now! Hampshire. The sources asked to remain anonymous. The leaders of the effort are not affiliated with the remnants of Sununu’s unsuccessful reelection campaign. If the...

    I need to confirm a rumor - did any reader in New Hampshire vote in the past hour or two? And if so, did they see any Obama monitors at their polling place? If the answer is "no," then it's because I have been informed correctly that Team Obama is worried about the Granite State and putting every resource into getting those last voters to the polls.

    Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has won in the two US towns that traditionally open US election voting. In Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, he won 15 votes to his Republican rival John McCain's six, becoming the first Democrat to win there since 1968. In Hart's Location he won 17 votes, while Mr McCain won 10, and Ron Paul two, showing 100% voter turnout. Results from the rest of the US are expected from 2300 GMT as citizens elect their 44th president. Hart's Location began the practice of voting early in 1948 so that railroad employees could vote before going to...

    Washington Post ^ | November 2, 2008 | Juliet Eilperin
    PETERBOROUGH, N.H. -- As his campaign nears its end, John McCain convened a town hall meeting tonight in New Hampshire, the state that has sustained his presidential aspirations during the darkest times. McCain's first-place finish in New Hampshire in 2000 made him a serious contender against George W. Bush, though it failed to carry him through the rest of the primaries. Nearly eleven months ago, winning here put him on the path to securing his party's nomination. While only a couple of dozen people showed up eight years ago when he held one of his first town halls here, tonight...

    A prominent New Hampshire Republican is getting off the Straight Talk Express and hopping on the Obama bandwagon. Fred Bramante has stepped down from John McCain’s New Hampshire Leadership Committee to endorse Barack Obama. The former chairman and current member of the state Board of Education said he opposes McCain’s support of school vouchers, which would give parents taxpayer money to offset the cost of private schooling. Bramante said politicians must abandon the voucher idea if they want to improve education.

    All the hand-wringing about whether Obama can hold Pennsylvania - forget it, he's got it. Virginia? McCain - no question. I was having dinner a night ago with a friend of mine who is a statistician for a well-regarded private polling company. They do some work for Republicans in California, but most of the work they do is for Democrats or Democrat-leaning operations (Unions, etc.). Anyway, her shop was retained to do a few Presidential polls for targeted states on behalf of a union so the union could decide where to spend their ad dollars for the last week. They...
