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.

A well deserved victory!

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.
