If you need a good laugh, this might be your ticket. Jennifer Horn is fishing for “Republicans” looking to hold the President accountable to Republican Principles. That’s funny. When I tried to get NHGOP Chair Jen Horn to do that RINO’s attacked me.
Horn’s ‘Republican’ record is a disaster. She ran the state party into the ground. She sowed division and tried to uproot and overturn Republican principles; bypassed rules of order and ignored bylaws. She might as well have set the whole party on fire. There may have been cackling.
And this is the woman who wants to organize “Republicans” to hold Mr. Trump accountable to Republican principles. She’d need to get some first.
But this is just the latest in a series of Never Trumping J-Ho escapades.
Jennifer briefly settled in with the Bill Weld for President campaign in early 2019, but that only lasted for two months. But it seemed like a good fit at the time. Weld is famous for being registered as a Republican and endorsing both Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton.
He’s probably got the same Republican principles as Jennifer Horn. But if it is any consolation, Jen’s brief encounter with Weld’s campaign probably left a mark, and not in a good way.
Horn also joined the Log Cabin Republicans, probably because they didn’t support Trump. She used that position to try and hijack a state party convention and get traditional marriage (a Republican principle) cut from the party platform.
That didn’t work out too well, either.
Then she had to leave the Log Cabin Republicans because they decided to support their Republican President in 2020. In my ode to her departure from that arrangement I wrote,
As for Ms. Horn, we wish her the best with whichever never-Trumper coalition she attaches herself to next. I’m sure they will benefit from the same skills she used to turn the NH Republican Party into a disorganized, divisive, bowl-swirling mess.
It looks like she didn’t find another coalition of Never-Trumpers, so she decided to create her own. Republican NH House leader Al Baldasaro (an actual Republican) bookended J-Ho’s announcement about as effectively as anyone could.
Cullen was a terrible NHGOP chair. He sat idly by while Democrats, for the first time in memory (perhaps in history), took over every political body in the Granite State and proceeded to ruin it. I’m sure he’s one of Jen’s close friends and anxious to work with her.
Cullen challenged Trump’s eligibility to be on the 2016 ballot, a move that got slapped down in a heartbeat in part because when asked if he had evidence Trump was not a Republican, Cullen replied, “I do not have that information.” But I bring it up because Fergus and J-Ho could use part of his ballot law complaint against Trump as the mission statement of Jen’s new movement.
He charged that Trump’s views, “expressed over decades, are inconsistent with the Republican Party platform and the Republican Party of New Hampshire’s Statement of Principles and By Laws.”
The platform Horn tried to rip up and the by-laws she ignored.
I think it has something to do with our proximity to Massachusetts. It’s full of Democrats. And a lot of the republicans are the Northeaster variety, which is to say, Democrats.
I think I know how Jennifer Horn got there from where she started. In 2010 she was a Tea Party candidate but fell in with Charlie Bass, a famous progressive Republican, and that was the end of her.
At best, she’s a moderate Democrat, which that party desperately needs. I heard a rumor that Joe Biden was going places. And they’re pretending he’s a moderate. Jen pretends to be Republican. Maybe she can get a job running “Republicans for creepy Joe Biden.” They probably have the same goals as Jen’s idea, but the pay is probably better.
