As you know, it takes all kinds, particularly in politics. Here’s Politico contributor Ben Schreckinger’s spin on our newly formed 603 Alliance:
New Hampshire conservatives plan anti-Jeb Bush caucus
[Politico.com] Taking aim at Jeb Bush, a group of leading New Hampshire conservatives and libertarians are preparing to stage their own caucus three months before the state’s first-in-the-nation primary — and then unify behind the winner.
Sick of the string of centrist GOP-ers who’ve dominated the state’s primary in recent years — including John McCain (twice) and Mitt Romney — conservatives and libertarians are hoping to defy the conventional wisdom that the Granite State is moderate-friendly turf between the evangelical-dominated Iowa caucuses and socially conservative South Carolina.

603 Alliance shares goals for 2016.
The 603 Alliance, a newly-formed organization of grassroots political activists, will present their goals and objectives to interested voters in the Portsmouth area on June 2nd.
This informational meeting is being sponsored by the Seacoast Republican Women on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, at the Portsmouth Library, 175 Parrott Ave., Portsmouth, in the Levenson Room at 6:30 pm. Admission is free.
The primary objective of the 603 Alliance is to positively influence the New Hampshire First-in-the-Nation Presidential Primary Election on February 9, 2016.
The stated goal of the 603 Alliance “is to restore constitutional control at all levels of government and to unite like-minded voters behind the most viable candidate promoting liberty, free enterprise, free markets, and personal responsibility.” The ultimate goal of the 603 Alliance is to support one candidate who meets the principles of the Alliance.

Why it’s so hard for conservatives to unify behind one candidate By JOHN DICKERSON
[CBSNews.com] The field of announced Republican candidates has recently doubled to six, with the entry of Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, and Mike Huckabee. When you add the candidates who are almost certain to soon join the race–Jeb Bush, Gov. Scott Walker, Rick Perry, and Gov. Chris Christie–and the others who might, the field will be big enough to fill an airport shuttle van. The stage at the first Fox News debate in early August will have so many people on it, the organizers may need to put everyone on bleachers.
On April 19 there was a loud bang very much like the shot heard around the world made on April 19, 1775 in Massachusetts. Well-known Conservative activists and like-minded constitutionalists in New Hampshire and surrounding states launched their new initiative by holding a Summit meeting for the purpose of introducing the 603 Alliance and the Conservative Business League to local organizations.
Among the noted speakers in attendance were:
Sharon Angle – former candidate for US Senate from Nevada
Trevor Louden – internationally renowned speaker and author of The Enemies Within
Andrew Hemingway – technology entrepreneur and former gubernatorial candidate
Betsy McCaughey – former Lieutenant Governor of New York and author of Beating Obamacare
Bill O’Brien – conservative leader and former Speaker of the NH House
Aaron Day – Chairman of Atlas Society
Jason Sorens – founder of the Free State Project
Dan Itse – NH State Rep and constitutional expert
Jack Kimball – business leader, former gubernatorial candidate, and former state GOP chair
Mike Rogers – conservative activist and blogger at GraniteGrok
The prospective presidential candidates who showed up for the GOP cattle call in Nashua last weekend heeded the plea from state party chair Jennifer Horn to refrain from intraparty squabbles. Not so for the conservative activists who stuck around for Sunday’s alternative conference.
The “Summit of Grassroots Activists” was hosted by the 603 Alliance, a new political committee attempting to coalesce support among conservatives for a single presidential candidate and leverage that support to help the endorsed candidate win the party’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary.
