Many of you will have received the NHGOP email “Can We Chat?” (about November), requesting support, and vowing to elect more Republicans – even to keep the corner office…
Uhhh. About that last one… Look, Jeannie got me to do what Jennifer Horn could not – sign up as a regular monthly donor – but that last goal is a stretch: If you appease less than 2% of the population over an issue which is unpopular with your base, you are likely to lose enough votes to be booted out.
