Interesting tack for the Democrats if you consider that the Republican Sanborn’s Democrat opponent, Lee Nyquist, had a campaign manager (Kevin Hodges) who during the 2012 campaign said that Democrats should beat Republicans with a bat, with their hands, with their feet…to which then candidate for Governor Hassan said That’s a good answer‘ …as a room full of Democrats in Goffstown laughed.
