No, current GOP Governor Chris Sununu (only candidate in the NH GOP primary) was a no-show at this event (was it something we all said at an earlier “conservative Old Home Day meeting” that never happened?) but a potential rival did show up (albeit, late in the day) – Aaron Day and came well prepared to speak:
Hey, CNHT is a non-partisan event as remember this factoid: the Chair of CNHT, Ed Naile, is a registered Democrat, so why didn’t either Molly Kelly or Steve Marchand (both running in the Democrat Party) show up? Thus, Aaron Day, running in the Libertarian Party, gladly showed up. Jilleta Jarvis, also of the Libertarian Party, was also a no-show.
If you are not “all in” in the NH political scene, Aaron did quite well in earning 15,000 votes when he ran for NH’s US Senate seat back in 2016. A lot of people should take him seriously. They should also take very seriously why he ran in that election and why did all of those people vote for a third party candidate? While there are a number of splinter parties here in NH, the fact that so many right-of-center voters did vote for Day should give folks a reason to think about what was done to arrive at such a total. And what might happen in November; deja vu all over again?
