N.H. Republicans Call for Unity
New Hampshire Republicans gathered today for a unity breakfast. Over eggs and sausage, Republicans at the Manchester Country Club talked jobs and the economy. Party leaders stressed a need to work together before the November election. And the governor of Louisiana called for a conservative agenda in the New Hampshire statehouse.
Keynote speaker Bobby Jindal told the crowd that with Ovide Lamontagne as governor, New Hampshire can better compete for new business.
"As a Republican governor, I’m here to tell you, we want the competition. We want New Hampshire to do well. We want you to cut your government spending, cut your taxes, grow your economy, cause it forces us to do better."
Lamontagne praised his former rival, Kevin Smith, whom he beat handily on Tuesday night. He faces Democrat Maggie Hassan in the November contest.
