Union Leader

  1. 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." 

  2. New Hampshire’s unemployment rate remained unchanged through May, according to the Economic and Labor Market information Bureau.  The jobless rate in May was 5 percent, the same as in April.

    This puts New Hampshire below the average national jobless rate, which was 8.2 percent for May, 2012.
