The overwhelming winner of the 603 Alliance Grassroots Presidential Selection Caucus for Republican Candidates on October 17 was U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. Dr. Ben Carson came in second place, and Carly Fiorina came in third.
The members of the 603 Alliance, who pledged that they would support and campaign for whomever was the victor in the Grassroots Caucus, have officially endorsed Senator Cruz, unanimously.
Over 700 grassroots activists turned out for this first-ever New Hampshire Caucus that was organized by the 603 Alliance. This Caucus was designed to give grassroots activists a chance to make their voices heard; and they did so quite clearly at the Durgin Arena at the Hopkinton Fairgrounds. Enthusiastic voters arrived early….
Jim Morose, from Danvers, MA was one of our non-voting marshals, all of whom kindly traveled from out of state to ensure a fair count. Jim also took video for Danvers Community Access TV, and sent us the link. Thankyou Jim.
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 second of the series of the 603 Alliance/CBL presentations was well received at the Littleton Republican Town Committee meeting on Thursday, May 21, 2015 in Littleton, NH.
Members welcomed speakers for the 603 Alliance and CBL Andrew Hemingway and Fran Wendleboe, and the steering committee members in attendance. Judging by the many interesting questions and subsequent discussions from the audience, it was obvious that the concept of the 603 Alliance and CBL was supported by the attendees.
