Carol Shea-Porker

March 9, 2009

The Monday, March 9 issue of the Union-Leader takes Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porker to task for how much money some of her district’s police departments are receiving care of the federal largess.


“Is it really the federal government’s job to train and equip local police departments?”

It is if you want your police to be arms of the federal government (I’d hate to see the strings attached on this funding…)

That was a question the UL had when they reported on Page A8 that Shea-Porker supplied local police departments with federal pork-barrel spending.

For example, the UL Editorial Board listed these:

+ $125,000 – Rochester Police Dept’s “training equipment.”
+ $105,000 – Portsmouth Police Dept.’s “digital radio encryption.”
+ $80,000 – Portsmouth PD’s “evidence equipment.”
+ $235,000 – Dover PD’s “equipment and training.”

SnowRevolt.com is a supporter of law enforcement, but encroaching federal involvement is definitely a reason to scrutinze…

2010 | Open Seats

March 9, 2009

For those curious as to how the lines are drawn:

Photobucket

Currently:
District 1 | Carol Shea-Porter | Democrat
District 2 | Paul Hodes | Democrat (shaded dark green)

U.S. Senate
Paul Hodes’ decision to seek the open U.S. Senate seat next year makes this race crucial for Republicans to retain. Same goes for CD-2 (Congressional District 2), which will be an open seat.

For the list of candidates in all parties for both open seats, click here:

NH2012 is reporting that former congressional candidate Jennifer Horn is considering another run for the U.S. House:


Former congressional candidate Jennifer Horn (R-NH) is “absolutely, very seriously considering” running for political office in 2010, The Keene Sentinel is reporting.

Horn, who ran unsuccessful for congress in 2008, said that she is leaning towards running for the Second Congressional District seat but has not ruled out running for another office.

“But that doesn’t mean, as a lot of people have tried to suggest, that I’m going to run against Paul Hodes for Senate,” The Sentinel reports. “I’m more strongly considering a run for the House, but I have not decided against anything. It is highly likely I’ll run, but it is notdefinite.”

Horn was defeated by U.S. Rep. Paul Hodes (D-NH), who has decided to run for the United States Senate in 2010.

Horn also said that will be hosting a radio show on WSMN starting April 6.
