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.
603 Alliance and CBL-NH, LLC members made a presentation to the Northborough, MA Tea Party group on Tuesday, May 19, 2015 at the Northborough Free Library. Jim Kofalt, Diane Bitter and Mike Rogers explained how the 603 Alliance and CBL-NH got started and the goals of the “sister” organizations to restore Constitutional principles in all levels of government and to educate and unite like-minded conservatives in support of candidates who will further these principles. With almost 45 NTP members present who were there by special invitation, kudos to Jim, Diane, and Mike who fielded the dozens of questions from the audience with exemplary aplomb.
As you know, it takes all kinds, particularly in politics. Here’s Politico contributor Ben Schreckinger’s spin on our newly formed 603 Alliance:

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.

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
