Jennifer Horn has run for congress twice: in 2008, she lost to democrat Paul Hodes; in 2010, Horn lost to fellow republican, Charlie Bass, in the primary.
More recently, Horn was active in Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. The mother of 5 has also hosted a radio show and written a column for the Nashua Telegraph.
Horn says the party’s first order of business needs to be a point-by-point review what she called "the many causes" of the GOP’s poor showing in 2012. Horn says the party must modernize and stress its core principles.
Lawmakers around the state are reacting to the death of former Senator Warren Rudman. Here's a sampling of what they've said:
U.S. Sen. KellyAyotte:
“Warren Rudman was a national leader who made New Hampshire proud. He was tenacious about reducing our debt and he worked tirelessly to support our men and women in uniform. Warren was a fighter who had the courage of his convictions, and he always stood up for what he believed was right regardless of the consequences.
One of New Hampshire’s new installations to the U.S. House of Representatives, Carol Shea-Porter, has served there before. That means freshmen orientation is a little different for the returning Congresswoman.
