Bernie is the only candidate free of the stench of Wall Street

To The Daily Sun,

Are you voting today?

I'm voting for Bernie because he has a damn good grasp of environmental problems and because he's free of the stench of Wall Street and the Koch brothers. No other candidates are.

Gov. Hassan had no business endorsing Clinton for president

To The Daily Sun,

Dear Governor Hassan:
Until this evening I had a favorable opinion of you. I was about to contribute to your senatorial campaign. Fortunately, I heard you speak at the Democratic fund raiser in Manchester before I wrote the check.

The N.H. Presidential Primary is a big event for New Hampshire, and not just for Democrats. I am a Democrat.
It is important that New Hampshire graciously host all presidential contenders, regardless of party. At a Democratic fund raiser I would expect equal hospitality to all Democratic contenders. When you (and Senator Shaheen) stepped out of the gracious host role and publicly supported Hillary Clinton, both of you lost my respect and political support.

If any Democrat seeks to run for the Senate in competition with you, I will support that person. If you are the Democratic nominee, I will vote for Kelly Ayotte.

As a representative of the people of New Hampshire, and a currently sitting governor, you are certainly entitled to your private opinions. However, you step outside the bounds of good taste and hospitality when you use your office to denigrate (or at best, damn by faint praise) the leading candidate at the expense of another before the party has made its selection.
