Former Sen. Bob Smith Kicks Off Campaign
Bob Smith says he's back in New Hampshire, running for his old U.S. Senate seat, because too many people in Washington have no sense of urgency or vision to restore the nation to greatness.
“It’s not about me, nor is it about any other candidate. It’s not about any political party, it’s not about republicans or democrats, its about saving the united states of America.”
Smith formally launched his 2014 Senate bid Tuesday with an event in Concord. He's one of several Republicans competing for a chance to challenge Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, including former state Sen. Jim Rubens and conservative activist Karen Testerman.
Smith spent three terms in the U.S. House and two in the Senate before losing a 2002 Republican primary to John E. Sununu.
