How Did Your Legislator Vote? Check the CPAC Scorecard

CPAC has released their latest legislative scorecard for NH.  Here’s their press release in its entirety, along with a link to the scorecard:

CPAC Releases New Hampshire Legislative Scorecard, Revealing the Plight of Razor-Thin Majorities. 
ALEXANDRIA, VA (March 11, 2024) — CPAC Foundation’s analysis reveals that New Hampshire’s Republican legislators largely voted consistently in line with the conservative position throughout the year. Despite their efforts, however, few conservative bills were passed because of near-gridlock in the House.
SEE SCORECARD HERE

“Somehow, New Hampshire, with its ideologically divided 400-person House of Representatives, has found itself in this unenviable position with predictable results,” said CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp. “New Hampshire voters need to send more conservatives to the legislature in order for the next Republican Governor to succeed.”

603 Alliance Endorses Beauregard & O’Brien for RNC

The 603 Alliance, a leading conservative grassroots organization in New Hampshire, announces that it is endorsing Mary Jane Beauregard for the position of RNC Committeewoman and Bill O’Brien for the position of RNC Committeeman. The election will take place on January 13th, 2024, at the Annual Meeting of the Republican State Committee.

Bill O’Brien has led the fight for fiscal restraint, lower taxes, less-intrusive government, and a return to common sense. As the NH Speaker of the House, he led Republican efforts to rein in a bloated state budget, defend the 2nd Amendment, and restore a vibrant New Hampshire economy. Since then, he has consistently held to the values espoused in the Republican party platform, and is currently representing our state as a member of the RNC. Bill has built a strong network of relationships with other leaders throughout the country. Those relationships will serve him well when he is elected to continue in that role .

Mary Jane Beauregard has worked tirelessly for Republicans in our state as the Finance Chair of the NHGOP. During her tenure in that position, she has proven herself to be an effective fundraiser and has consistently demonstrated her ability to work with others toward a common goal. The 603 Alliance Board believes that Mary Jane has the wisdom, experience, and commitment be a strong voice for New Hampshire, advocating for the preservation of our First in the Nation status.

“Bill has been a champion for limited government for many years, and we have no doubt that he will continue to represent New Hampshire effectively,” said Diane Bitter, Board member and co-founder of the 603 Alliance. “We are impressed with Mary Jane’s experience and commitment as well, and look forward to seeing her expand her efforts to the national stage.”

603 Alliance Endorses Chuck Morse for Governor

The 603 Alliance, a leading conservative grassroots organization in New Hampshire, endorses Chuck Morse for Governor.

Chuck Morse boasts a proven track record as the longest-serving President of the New Hampshire State Senate, dedicated to limiting government overreach and safeguarding Constitutional rights.

Ayotte’s rhetoric on the campaign trail may mimic conservative ideals, but her actions during her one term in the United States Senate often retreated from these principles.

Morse stands alone as the sole candidate with a tangible record of defending 2nd Amendment rights, reducing taxes for small businesses and homeowners, vehemently opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants, advocating for educational freedom, and prioritizing an America-first energy policy. Morse has the proven record of substantive accomplishments that he consistently delivered while in the NH Senate.

As a border state, it is critical that our NH Governor take a firm stand against illegal immigration. While in the United States Senate Kelly Ayotte voted for the “Gang of Eight” immigration reform bill that would have given citizenship to people who entered the United State illegally.

“I served in the legislature with Chuck and there is not anyone better qualified and prepared to be Governor than Chuck is “asserted Fran Wendelboe of the 603 Alliance. ” Morse’s actions and accomplishments reflect the qualities of a genuine conservative leader. His track record of over a decade dedicated to delivering concrete results for Granite State families instills our trust that he will seamlessly continue this successful legacy from day one.”

Chuck Morse is not a career politician; he is a successful small business owner who started Freshwater Farms from scratch and now employs more than 50 Granite Staters.  He has put that experience to work for the people of New Hampshire. Under his leadership not only has the state budget been balanced, but we have seen property taxes cut by $500 million; the interest and dividends tax eliminated; and the state’s rainy-day fund filled.

Chuck Morse is the kind of leader who gets things done. He has been able to move the state in a positive direction even when in the minority. His ability to reach across the aisle without sacrificing his principles is a real asset.

For these reasons, when comparing the track record of the two current Republican candidates, the 603 Alliance determined that Chuck Morse is clearly the best candidate to be our next Governor.
