New Hampshire State House

The best defense is a strong offense

> Your area does not have any Democrat Reps, but you can be sure that next year there will be Democrat candidates.
> Now is a good time to go on offense. The best defense against future Dem candidates is a strong offense against today’s Dem Reps.
> Let voters know that Democrats vote very badly. They might be nice people but they vote terribly.
> Pick the issues that you think will work best in your area and show voters the Dems’ voting record.
> When we get voters to realize that almost all Democrat Reps, almost all the time, vote terribly, then we are more than halfway toward defeating next year’s Democrat candidates.
> If all Republicans are on message, if voters hear this same message repeatedly all over the state, there will be huge synergy that will make the message even more effective.
Please spread the message
