    New Hampshire GOP chairwoman Jennifer Horn is fighting off calls for her resignation after she violated the bylaws of her own state party by attacking GOP candidate Donald Trump.

    PJ Media ^ | 11-26-2015 | Michael van der Galien
    New Hampshire GOP chairwoman Jennifer Horn has abandoned all pretext of impartiality by launching an aggressive attack against Donald Trump. In an interview with the Boston Globe Horn says: "Shallow campaigns that depend on bombast and divisive rhetoric do not succeed in New Hampshire, and I don’t expect that they will now." She went on to say that establishment candidates like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and Marco Rubio are "underestimated" and will almost certainly perform better than most. This despite their disappointing poll numbers, both nationally and in her state: "People are probably underestimating [New Jersey Governor] Chris Christie. And,...

    A New Hampshire agency has rejected efforts to keep four presidential candidates off the ballot. The New Hampshire Ballot Commission upheld New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner's decision to allow Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on the Democratic primary ballot and Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), as well as real estate mogul Donald Trump on the GOP primary ballot. Commission Chairman Bradford Cook said all decisions were unanimous. The decision on Sanders came in response to a complaint that argued was he was ineligible to run as a Democrat because he was elected and currently serves as...

    A former chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party says Donald Trump should not be on the Republican presidential primary ballot on Feb. 9 because the GOP frontrunner has not proven he is a registered Republican and has expressed views “inconsistent” with the state and national party’s platform and by laws. In his usual, understated fashion, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski responded by saying that if this move were approved, “Mr. Trump’s supporters would probably riot in the streets of New Hampshire.” Normally I’d shrug off a comment like that as typical campaign rhetoric, but in this case it’s probably...
  • Trump faces challenge on eligibility for the New Hampshire ballot

    Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN)Donald Trump may be the clear Republican front-runner in New Hampshire but at least one member of his party is saying he shouldn't even be on the ballot. Former state party chairman Fergus Cullen, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump's, on Monday challenged the businessman's status within the party. "It is my belief that Mr. Trump must present evidence that he is a registered member of the Republican Party because his views, expressed over decades, are inconsistent with the Republican Party platform and the Republican Party of New Hampshire's statement of principles and bylaws," Cullen...

    Mitt Romney has said time and time again that he is not running for president. However, a new poll shows that the former Massachusetts governor's nonexistent campaign would lead the field in New Hampshire, if only he were to launch a third run for president (which he'd now have to do as a write-in candidate having missed the state's filing deadline). According to a Suffolk/Boston Globe poll of likely Granite State primary voters, if Romney was added to crowd of GOP presidential hopefuls, he would lead the field with 31 percent of the vote—more than double that of current frontrunner...

    Given that the deadline to file for the New Hampshire ballot was three days ago, I’m not sure why the Globe felt this was necessary. Maybe they wanted to show people how soft Trump’s support in the state really is, despite all of the polls there showing him leading? If so, it would have been nice to make that point when Romney was still viable as a potential candidate. Right now, looking at Rubio’s relative weakness in New Hampshire, I’ll bet a lot of establishmentarians who are worried about Trumpmentum would think hard about Romney 3.0 as a last-ditch bid...

    For all of the candidates, all of the debates and all of the unpredictability, the race for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 has taken a clear shape over the past month or so. There is a four-candidate top tier that has separated itself from the rest of the pack. There is then a trio of “if/then” candidates who would need a major mistake or collapse from one of the top four to have a realistic chance at winning. Everyone else running has a puncher’s chance — at best — at being relevant in the nomination fight. Below are my...

    For Republicans fearful of Donald Trump becoming their party’s presidential nominee, a new Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll of likely New Hampshire Republican primary voters offers a three-word solution: Willard Mitt Romney. If the former Massachusetts governor were added to the mix of the 14 other Republican candidates running in the Feb. 9 first-in-the-nation presidential primary, New Hampshire voters would, if the election were held now, give him a 2-to-1 win over Trump, the leader of the field. Romney, who said as recently as last week that he is not interested in running, did not file for the New Hampshire primary...

Calling it a distinctive issue in the campaign for the White House, the Florida senator said, "At least two of my colleagues in the Senate aspiring to the presidency, Sen.

    According the Politico, the presidential campaign of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% is firing on all cylinders. “He has more cash than any other Republican candidate. He is organized in every county in the first four voting states. And he has served up one strong debate performance after the next.” That, of course, makes him a threat to the Bush/Open Borders wing of the Republican Party. “He’s the longer-term threat,” said Fergus Cullen, the former chairman of the New Hampshire GOP and a Republican who does not support Cruz. “I suspect once Trump goes down, people like me will have...

    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is facing a challenge to his eligibility for the Democratic primary ballot in New Hampshire because of his longtime status as an independent. The state's filing paperwork requires a candidate to declare as a registered member of whichever party he or she is running in. The complaint, filed Thursday, claims Sanders is ineligible because he has never been elected as a Democrat. Sanders declared himself a Democrat while filing to run last week. The state's five-member Ballot Law Commission, which rules on questions of eligibility, will take up the challenge Nov. 24.

Despite spending more on TV than all other candidates combined, Jeb has dropped to sixth place in nation's first primary state, a must-win for his Presidential ambitions. In July, Jeb Bush was second in New Hampshire. A great deal of Bush's candidacy was predicated on enjoying an enormous financial edge over his Republican rivals. When he launched his campaign this summer, an allied Super PAC announced it had raised just over $100 million to support Jeb in the primary. This announcement...

    The most bemused man in America must be former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. In response to a question at a campaign stop in New Hampshire, former Florida governor and current presidential candidate Jeb Bush pronounced Gingrichs idea of a moon base as pretty cool. The former speaker must be asking himself, where was that kind of support in 2012 when he first proposed building a moon base by 2020? Indeed, a number of recent developments have made the once ridiculed idea cool again.

    Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) is slowly losing support among Republican voters in New Hampshire, according a new poll in the Granite State. Bushs favorability rating s at its lowest level since last year and support for his 2016 GOP presidential bid has also fallen, according to the latest Bloomberg Politics/Saint Anselm New Hampshire survey. It found that he has 10 percent support among likely GOP presidential primary voters in the state. He previously received 11 percent last May. Bush ranks third in the Republican field, trailing front-runner Donald Trump and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Trump receives 24 percent, while...

    . at least he is a real bona fide candidate. Regardless of how fraught with inherent deception Jeb Bushs intent and purposes for seeking the GOP nomination, he is in fact a real candidate; with, factual action taking place on the ground to support his efforts. Like Donald Trump, Jeb Bush is structurally in the race -with infrastructure- trying to win it. The other multiple candidates, not so much; actually, not even close. trump vs bush Spurred by our discovery of the internal Republican National Committee efforts to engage with State Republican party apparatus, vis--vis ongoing rule changes, numerous boots...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was the decisive winner in a New Hampshire caucus held by a conservative group on Saturday.The conservative firebrand took 72.3 percent of the final vote in the several-round election that eliminated the bottom two vote-getters until one candidate was left standing.The caucus was put on by the 603 Alliance, a group of about 700 conservative activists in the Granite State who met at the Hopkinton Fair Grounds to endorse one Republican candidate for president.I am inspired by the number of New Hampshire conservatives who believe that our campaign can win, Cruz said in a statement shortly...

    HOPKINTON – A casual observer could have been forgiven for mistaking the Hopkinton Fairgrounds for Iowa on Saturday. Inside an unheated, cavernous barn, more than 700 grassroots activists conducted their own presidential caucus — rounds of voting and redistributing to select a candidate who would stand up for strict conservative values. In this first-ever New Hampshire caucus, organizers hoped the new style of competition would help unify the right against establishment candidates. In the end (and in the beginning), it wasn't really close: Texas Sen. Ted Cruz cruised to the win after just three rounds of voting. Though all...

    The 603 alliance had their caucus today at the Hopkinton State Fair grounds in Contoocook NH. The idea was to get conservatives in NH to unite behind a single candidate via a caucus. Ted Cruz has won, Ben Carson came in 2nd Carly Fiorina 3rd. Donald Trump failed to make the first cut not managing 25 votes, Jeb bush didnt manage a single vote. Under the rules if the winner of the 603 alliance caucus drops out of the presidential race the people pledge to support the 2nd place finisher and so forth. Expect updates Update 1 I arrived at...

    I have just returned from this event, which was great fun! Just a quick note, though, that the author of this article is almost certainly incorrect in saying that Carly came in second, and Carson came in third. There were many, many Carson supporters there, but only a handful of Carly supporters. I know this because we Cruz supporters were forced to use their (Carly's) space for our overflow of Cruz attendees!
