2018 Election Recap

The 603 Alliance has been very busy in 2018 working to find, train, and elect Conservatives to the NH House. We received very positive feedback from candidates about our campaign training and mentoring, our issues education, and our seminar on what to expect in the new legislative session.  Based on an analysis of the election results, our efforts have helped elect more conservative NH State Representatives. Thirty-eight percent of our endorsed first-time state representative candidates won their elections, versus a 27% success rate for first-time non-endorsed candidates.

Unfortunately, however, there was a “blue wave” in New Hampshire. Democrats took over the House, Senate, and Executive Council and will work to undo the Republican achievements of the last two years.  The 603 Alliance will be encouraging Governor Sununu to veto Democrat attempts to limit our freedoms, harm our economic growth, create new taxes, or substantially expand government.

We wish to thank all candidates for their efforts and encourage those who didn’t win this time to stay active to prepare to run again and win in 2020. It is essential that Republicans are victorious in 2020, not only to put our state and country back on track to greater freedom, security, and prosperity; but to avoid gerrymandering by Democrats that would lock New Hampshire Republicans out of office for at least the next decade.  Stay tuned for more information as we plan our activities to achieve victory in 2020.

We want to thank the many people who have helped by contributing their time, expertise, and money. Your continued assistance will help us use the experience we gained in 2018 to be even more effective in ensuring success in 2020.

September Primary Results

The 603 Alliance believes we made a difference in the September, 2018 Republican Primary. The 603 Alliance has held multiple candidate trainings, provided mentors to selected candidates, and provided updates and educational materials to candidates throughout the primary process. In addition, our PAC placed ads to help more conservative candidates replace incumbents with bad voting records. Seventeen of the 25 first time GOP Primary candidates endorsed by the 603 Alliance won their primaries; that is a 68% success rate. Of the GOP first time candidates without our endorsement, only 24 of 59 candidates, 40.7%, won their primaries.

We are learning from our first time effort, and with your continued support we expect to improve our ability to help more good conservatives win future primaries.

The 603 Alliance thanks all GOP primary candidates for their efforts. We encourage the primary candidates who didn’t win this time to stay involved and to help ensure GOP success in November.

The 603 Alliance would like to thank the people who contributed their time and/or money to help good conservatives win their primary races.

603 Alliance Initiative 18 Fundraiser A Huge Success

On November 9th a large crowd joined us for dinner to support New Hampshire’s small-government legislative future through Initiative 18. Keynote speaker Steve Bannon spoke for 45 minutes, covering a range of issues including voter fraud, fake news, and the “Russia collusion” hoax.

The event was a rousing success. The protestors were out in force and the event got a good deal of coverage in the national press. Thanks to all who attended.
