Senator Ted Cruz is the Victor
in the Grassroots Presidential Selection Caucus.
Dr. Ben Carson was in 2nd place, and Carly Fiorina was 3rd.
Two days ago we witnessed an historic event in New Hampshire — the first-ever New Hampshire Grassroots Caucus for Presidential Candidates. Over 750 grassroots activists filled the barn-like Durgin Arena at the Hopkinton Fairgrounds to make their voices heard loud and clear. The energy was high and the excitement contagious.
Those of you who were there will always remember this important day, and we thank you for your participation. It was a wonderful demonstration of grassroots politics in its truest form.
Thanks to all the voters who turned out in barely 40 degree temperatures this Saturday in order to exercise a novel (for NH) method of figuring out which GOP candidate has the broadest appeal to the grassroots.
All candidates were invited, nay, exhorted, to attend, or send representatives, to encourage their supporters, and to send a surrogate speaker or a video clip to make their pitch.
The results reflect a combination of the candidate’s breadth of appeal, and the effort put forth by their campaign – our hats off to Ted Cruz and his team for encouraging the most supporters to attend, and for persuading the majority of the voters freed from early rounds to join their group for the final count.
The 603 Alliance held the first conservative caucus in the history of New Hampshire. There were over 700 Granite State grass roots activists in attendance. It was free and all Republican Presidential candidates were invited to participate, although not all chose to do so. You could feel the energy in the room as soon as you walked in and people were actually having fun. Fun is not often used to describe political events.
What is the 603 Alliance and how did it get started? One of the 603 Alliance founders, Fran Wendelboe, outlines the background of the organization and why it got started on “The People’s View” with Carl Seidel.

On August 13, at the opening of the fall season for the Nashua City Republican Committee, Karen Thoman, Vice Chairman, introduced members of the 603 Alliance to speak to the NRCC members.
The Amphitheater of the Nashua Crowne Plaza was filled with approximately 40 members of the NRCC as Jim Kofalt and Diane Bitter addressed the group. When Diane asked for a show of hands of who had heard of the 603 Alliance, nearly every hand was raised. This was a clear indication that word is spreading — and that’s good.
