Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Shea-Porter Votes Against New Hampshire's Middle Class  

Shea-Porter Opposes an all of the above Energy Approach

MANCHESTER – Last night, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter voted against a piece of bipartisan job-creating energy legislation.

H.R. 2, the American Energy Solutions for Lower Costs and More American Jobs Act, would establish energy independence, lower the cost of energy for New Hampshire families, and create and sustain more secure and well-paying jobs. This commonsense energy package passed the House of Representatives with Carol Shea-Porter and Nancy Pelosi voting no.

Frank Guinta released the following statement:

"Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter is more concerned with keeping her D.C. and California friends happy than creating jobs and lowering energy costs for Granite Staters. She claims to favor an all of the above energy approach, but when it comes to weaning ourselves off of Middle-East oil, building the Keystone Pipeline, and creating tens of thousands of good, middle class jobs, she is in Nancy Pelosi's pocket. The day President Obama took office in 2008, the price of a gallon of gas was $1.84.
Six years of Carol Shea-Porter, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama have led to fewer jobs and higher gas prices. "

At Home or in D.C. Congresswoman Shea-Porter’s Duck and Cover Strategy Failing New Hampshire

With the constituent recess period having ended, and legislative action drawing to a close, this is a good time to take a look at what Congresswoman Shea-Porter has been up to.

Jay Ruais, Campaign Manager for Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“By every objective measure the Congresswoman is failing Granite Staters. Though the nation and world face immense problems, Shea-Porter spent the August recess flying to a vineyard in California to try and raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for
her reelection effort. She refused to hold a single open forum or town hall during her time in New Hampshire.

While in Washington she has failed to address the growing crises in the Middle-East, the borders remain unsealed, the economy is stagnant, ObamaCare premiums are set to spike while she voted against a bill to let you keep your health care plan if you like it. She has proven herself to be inaccessible, ineffective and indifferent to New Hampshire. She gave herself a C+ grade, but she is failing New Hampshire”


Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Guinta Statement on 9/11 Anniversary  

Today marks the 13th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001. Frank Guinta released the following statement:

“This morning we honor and remember those who perished in the World Trade Center attacks 13 years ago. The loss was tragic beyond words but the memories of the mothers and fathers, friends and first responders lost that day live on in the stories we share of their heroism, sacrifice and bravery. This evening I will be attending a 9/11 observance at the American Legion Post 35 in Hampton.”


Guinta For Congress (CD1) - Shea-Porter Ad Offers no Solutions, only Negative Soundbites  

In a Revealing Ad, Shea-Porter Offers No Plan for Future

In response to Congresswoman Shea-Porter's release of her first campaign ad, Jay Ruais, Campaign Manager, issued the following statement;

"Congresswoman Shea-Porter's first ad is revealing, it is abundantly clear she has decided to focus entirely on putting her political career over the needs of Granite Staters. She offers no solutions, only soundbites, no plans, only partisan politics, no compromise only conflict. Her six years in Washington have brought us an erosion of the middle class, a stunningly weak economy, and a "fix" to health care that continues to leave millions uninsured, health care costs increasing and more unemployment. New Hampshire deserves a representative who will solve problems and listen to them, Frank Guinta is that leader."



Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement on Frank Guinta's primary election victory:


"We are honored to congratulate Frank Guinta on his primary election victory tonight. Granite Staters understand that Frank's proven record of working to cut taxes, balance budgets and fight big government regulations that hurt middle class families is what's desperately needed in Washington.


"Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter has marched in lockstep with Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and blindly supported failed policies that are hurting New Hampshire.  She refuses to be open and honest with her constituents, preferring instead of spend her time with Washington special-interest groups that are desperately trying to save her flailing re-election campaign.  Granite Staters will send Frank Guinta to Congress in November because they know he is the best candidate to create jobs and economic prosperity for working families."
