Shea-Porter Wins First Debate—Holds Guinta Accountable

Tonight, Carol Shea-Porter held Frank Guinta accountable for his out-of-touch voting record and fordeceiving New Hampshire voters. Guinta broke the law by accepting $355,000 in illegal campaign contributions, deceived Granite State voters about it for five years, and was found guilty. As his Republican primary opponent, Rich Ashooh said, “This is not minor, this is the largest scandal of a campaign finance issue we’ve had in New Hampshire. Worse, he broke the trust of the voters, he lied.”

FACT CHECK: Guinta Misleads Voters about his Record Combating the Opioid Crisis

Last night, Congressman Frank Guinta misled NHPR listeners about federal actions and funding for the heroin and opioid crisis, and he should acknowledge it, because facts matter. Congress has only appropriated $7 million to combat the opioid crisis—for the entire nation. This is ridiculously insufficient. It’s dangerous to pretend that Congress has funded this crisis when it hasn’t.

Trump should be himself?

Rochester, NH— Just after the last Presidential Debate came to a close, the Trump Campaign rushed to release a statement from his top cheerleader, Frank Guinta, declaring Trump the winner. As the nation, repulsed by Trump’s latest comments, prepares to watch the next debate, the Shea-Porter Campaign is asking if Guinta will once again rush to Trump’s defense.

Guinta said during a CloseUp interview taped Friday morning that he hoped Donald Trump would just “be himself.” He bragged how he’s spent time with Trump and talked with him extensively. As even more evidence emerges that proves Trump is a disgusting misogynist, we wonder if Frank stands by his statement that Trump should just “be himself.” As many learned over the weekend, Trump “being himself” is sickening and repulsive.

“Given all that we’ve learned about Trump in the last few days, will Guinta rush to defend the man he called ‘refreshing’ and a ‘serious leader’ and continue to pretend this never happened, or bow to political pressure like Kelly Ayotte did and withdraw his support? He knows exactly what Trump ‘being himself’ means, so it is outrageous for Guinta to urge Trump to ‘be himself.’ Frank must retract his statement, withdraw his support for Donald Trump, and apologize to New Hampshire citizens for misleading them about Trump,” said Shea-Porter spokeswoman, Naomi Andrews. 


Veterans and Military Families for Progress Endorses Carol Shea-Porter

Guinta’s Response is Unacceptable. Shea-Porter Campaign Calls on Guinta to Drop His Support for Trump Immediately.

After waiting all night to see how Trump’s despicable comments would play-out politically, Frank Guinta released a hollow, non-statement that makes it clear that he is still endorsing and voting for Trump even though many other Republicans are denouncing him. Paul Ryan refused to campaign with Trump. Mike Pence, his running mate, says “I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them,”jumping off a sinking ship. Even Kelly Ayotte is now refusing to vote for him. Conservative Republicans all across the country, from Jason Chaffetz to Scott Garret to, are pulling their support.


The Last Straw? It’s time for Guinta to Abandon Trump

Rochester, NH— Today, the Washington Post released the content audio recording of Donald Trump using crude and disgusting language to describe how he would approach women. Frank Guinta has refused to stand up to Trump when he attacked a war hero, went after the family of a fallen soldier, and made despicable comments about women. This has gone on long enough.
