Ayotte & others, with sincerity, must now endorse Trump

To The Daily Sun,

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the former Maryland lieutenant governor and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, told POLITICO that GHW Bush is voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton for president.
For the last four years of her term as our U. S. Senator,  Kelly Ayotte has lost my confidence as a Republican. Through her lack of conservatism, she has lost touch with some voters. She has kept her distance from my candidate, Donald Trump. Kelly doesn't want to lose her standing as being part of the "Establishment!"
Since they want to force me to vote for "their" candidates, and Hillary, here is what has to happen to all Republicans. Ayotte, Chris Sununu, Kasich, ALL, with sincerity, must endorse the party nominee, Donald Trump.
Oh, but, what about the other candidates? Hillary will load the U.S. Supreme Court with anti-First and Second Amendment judges. Absolutely. Then why does it matter who holds state election positions; Bingo – centralized government!

Running for governor was absolutely worth the time I invested

To The Daily Sun,

To the voters of New Hampshire: thank you for your support in my campaign for governor! What a great experience for me — the people I have met and the friends I have made; it was all absolutely worth the time invested.

I am deeply appreciative of everything my supporters did for our campaign. From standing at the polls for hours, marching in parades, hosting house parties and licking envelopes, you were amazing. I am so very proud of the campaign we ran. I was proud to receive the endorsement of the Union Leader, conservative leader Tom Thomson, and leaders of the veterans' community.

Thank you to my husband Keith for his support and my finance committee for their work.

Thank you to Ted Gatsas and Frank Edelblut for putting themselves out there and wanting to lead our state in a positive direction. Finally, thanks to Chris Sununu for a spirited campaign — and congratulations! The voters have spoken. Now is the time for Republicans to unite behind our nominee.

I remain firm in my convictions that the politicians in Concord should work for the People, not the other way around.

That New Hampshire is worth saving from this heroin and opioid crisis ...

That veterans, just like law enforcement, deserve our respect and support ...

That the Northern Pass project should be buried along state rights-of-way ...

That Concord needs a culture change ...

And that state government should always put communities first.

I look forward to serving out the remainder of my term as State Senator for District 2 until December. As always, I want to hear from you. If you have a concern you'd like to share, an event you'd like me to attend, or a problem you think I might be able to help with–please call or email (271.4980 [o] or This email address is being protected from spambots.
