Another Contested Republican Primary for the Executive Council – EC3

Tim Comerford2 Original care of WMUR

There is much focus on the Executive Council primary race in District 5 but we’d like to turn your attention to District 3. Three Republicans are running for the nomination and one of them has a record we can truly trust.

ICYMI: RLCNH issues executive council endorsements: Kenney, Comerford, Wheeler


  • Tim Comerford is a three-term Republican member of the New Hampshire House (2008-2014).
  • During those years he consistently delivered an NH House Republican Alliance score of 96%.
  • He helped Speaker O’Brien cut the 800 billion dollar structural deficit created by a previous Democrat majority.
  • While both of his opponents have money to spend on a campaign, Tim has the skills and record taxpayers can trust.


And the party machine keeps forgetting Tim is running. At least that is the impression I get from some folks who would know. That doesn’t always mean anything, but sometimes it does.

His opponents, Bruce Crochetiere and Janet Stevens might be reasonable alternatives, but you don’t start with the alternatives. You begin with the best potential candidate for the job. Tim is a known quantity.

List of endorsements.

For a recent look, here is a Candidates Night Zoom Event in Salem: Watch from 1:13:28  to 1:38:26

They are running to replace Russell Prescott and I think Tim is your best bet.

EC 3 includes the cities and towns of Atkinson, Brentwood, Chester, Danville, Derry, East Kingston, Epping, Exeter, Fremont, Greenland, Hampstead, Hampton, Hampton Falls, Kensington, Kingston, New Castle, Newfields, Newington, Newmarket, Newton, North Hampton, Pelham, Plaistow, Raymond, Rye, Salem, Sandown, Seabrook, South Hampton, Stratham, and Windham, and the city of Portsmouth.

Corrected a typo: “can’t truly trust” should have been can truly trust. Not a small oversight. My apologies.
