Breaking: Andrew Hemingway to run for NH GOP Chair

by Skip

Breaking details:

The once cleared table for Jennifer Horn to assume “by accolade” the NH GOP Chairmanship may have gotten a rightward tilt to it.  Former RLCNH Chair Andrew Hemingway has announced that he will be opposing Horn’s ascendancy.

I have been told that I will receive more details later on this afternoon.

Hmmm, the day’s looking better already!

    Skip –
    Your nefarious backdoor dealings have been outed over at the RINO Post 🙂 Thanks for assisting in the notion of choice in an election. Sounds refreshing.

      RINO post? Heh – and which of the hundreds of posts of which I have opined concerning RINOs would that one be, sir?

      Choice is good – and hopefully this will be a most refreshing one.

      • C. dog e. doG

        That’s RINO Post, as in a certain NH e-journal that dabbles in the RINO fields. Your name is almost front and center.

          Response: “out of thin air”. I hate not being invited to meetings that have my name on them. Thanks for the tip, Sir Dog!

    Hah! Andrew Hamingway is a backstabbing political hack, I can’t wait to see what gets rolled out against this joker. I would bet the farm that he gives his concession speech from the fetal position.

  • Andrew would be a fine choice, with good connections, a lot of support among the liberty lovers, and plenty of energy. The battle is joined! #WAR

    • C. dog e. doG

      Not being enmeshed in party politicks, is this Hemingway the sort of fellow to place his John Hancock on a liberty affirming pledge or two, pledges that contain some conditional teeth that if violated would immediately disqualified said signer from said office? Many of us have been trampled on by far too many RINO’s to be fooled again.

        he was the chair of the Republican Liberty Caucus before the current chair, Carolyn McKinney – that says a lot for me. In fact, he wrote here (well, some videos) at the ‘Grok as well.

        • C. dog e. doG

          Thanks, Skip. I’ll give them a spin. Not intending to add more white lighting to the fire, but what about Carolyn for the post? Regardless of who takes the helm (or is that: whom takes the helm?) I’d still like to see him/her tethered to some substantive pledges.

      • Whatever you think of Newt, Andrew ran NewtHampshire, and did an exceedingly good job of getting the word out.
        Andrew is a committed constitutionalist, and will drive both Liberals and RINOs Bat-Sh!t crazy

    Andrew “Newt Gingrich” Hemingway? Color me unimpressed.

    • C. dog e. doG

      If that’s the sole criterion by which to judge candidates, few if any would pass muster. Plastic Mitt the RINO, Cain not able to skirt the skirts, Huntsman tracking his real republican self, Perry cursed by his unholy trinity? We might want a wider array by which to evaluate. Wonder which one would sign a pledge to actively and forcefully pursue skool choice for all parents in the Grate State of New Hamsters?

        I agree, it’s hard to imagine any self-respecting supporter of liberty choosing to throw their weight behind any of those yahoos. Hemingway showed his true colors by choosing Newt over Paul.

        • granitegrok

          It seems that many Libertarians sole litmus test of who was a “Liberty person” was in whether they supported Ron Paul – or not. Sorry dudes, bad test with bad outcomes. By that measure, I and a lot of others that fight every day to stem the loss of our Rights would be cast aside.

          You have a chance, if you are a Delegate, to choose: Someone like Andrew that will push for more Liberty or Horn that is now a typical Establishment republican?

          • mnh4

            It’s not my sole litmus test, but supporting Gingrich to that extent certainly casts one’s credibility into question. Did he really think Newt Gingrich was the best hope for the US? (that’s scary) or did he sell out? Either way reflects poorly on him. Yes, that’s just my opinion, Horn may be even worse, and I’m not one of the delegates who will be choosing.

          • C. dog e. doG

            I concur with that, which is why I consider the Newt pitch as only a strike, not an out. However, I would like to know if they would support school choice for all, return of property rights, and sign on the dotted line to that effect. Otherwise, that would be an out for me.

    Can anyone tell me what Horn brings to the table? She cannot run a meeting or take control of a crowd as witnessed at the state meeting in September. Anyone in political circles knows she speaks out of both sides of her mouth. Is that what we want? Horn has proven time and again, she is in anything for one reason only, herself. Twice in public elections, she has been rejected. Is our party going to embrace someone the public doesn’t? Strike one right out of the starting gate. Lost credibility to our party.

    If we Republicans want to win, we MUST break from the past, quit thinking the has-beens are going to lead us into the future. That mindset has repeatedly hurt us.

    Its no wonder the Dems are happy w/ her candidacy.

    • My3sons

      They want Horn in because she will keep the Romney-bots employed and losers of recent elections, free rein to run without opposition next time.

  • NH Citizen

    And another random thought. WE need a uniter. If Horn cannot even unite 1/2 the state behind her candidacy for US rep, you figure it out.
