by Skip September 4, 2018

“HAVE A QUESTION FOR TED OR AN IDEA FOR THE CITY OF MANCHESTER?“ Previous post on Ted Gatsas insularity here.  I say that because it turns out that I haven’t been the only one trying to reach out to their campaign to arrange a debate between him and Jane Cormier.  Same result – no answers […]

So Grant Bosse is advocating the same for the NH GOP as Obama actually did for immigration?
