New Hampshire newspaper The Union Leader made an endorsement for Mitt Romney on Sunday, as well as N.H. Republican gubernatorial candidate Ovide Lamontagne in an editorial by Publisher Joseph W. McQuaid.
“It is too often said, but this really is a very important election,” McQuaid writes. “Nationally, we will have either four more years of deficit spending and government expansion under President Obama and Joe Biden, or at least the chance of restoring the economy and reining in the government under Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. We think the right choice is Romney-Ryan.”
New Hampshire’s current Governor, John Lynch, is stepping down after eight years in office. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Lynch announced his endorsement of fellow Democrat Maggie Hassan to become his replacement.
“Maggie Hassan is the leader to help the state moving forward,” Lynch said on Tuesday.
Is New Hampshire gubernatorial candidate Jackie Cilley’s “Pledge Zombie” ad the weirdest of 2012?
In the ad, Cilley explains her reasoning for not taking New Hampshire’s “anti-tax pledge,” describing other N.H. politicians as “zombies to the pledge.”
All the while, she casually defends her home from a horde of murderous zombies (Who are very rudely interrupting the filming of her campaign ad). Perhaps the ad is meant to convey the cool, balanced leadership that Cilley would exhibit if such a zombie attack should take place.
Cilley, a former state senator, is in a tight race with Maggie Hassan for the Democratic nomination in New Hampshire.
