CNHT Taxpayer Family Reunion Picnic – the Advocacy groups

Or non-profits.  Or special interest groups.  Whatever you wish to call them, right or left, people have interests and these groups are the essence of what de Tocqueville was so amazed about when he toured America back in the 1830s – the ease and speed in which ordinary Americans voluntarily banded together to solve a problem …

CNHT Taxpayer Family Reunion Picnic – Candidates for US Congress in CD-1

Candidates aplenty during the CNHT Picnic (“Old Home Day for Conservatives” – you ought to be there next year!) and with Carol SEIU-Porter retiring (just long enough to get that beefy US Congress retirement plan!), the seat is wide open.  Boy, is it wide open: 6 Republicans – Michael Callis, Bruce Crochetiere, Jeffory W.

CNHT Taxpayer Family Reunion Picnic – Candidates for US Congress in CD-2

Like NH’s First Congressional District (NH CD-1), there are plenty of candidates to look at/worry over (depending on your political point of view) in CD-2.

Self-proclaimed uber-Progressive Annie Kuster is gunning for …
