With Trump’s Nomination Seemingly Secured, Time for Rich Ashooh and Frank Guinta to Follow Through on Pledge to Support

Rochester, New Hampshire – Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, Rich Ashooh and Frank Guinta need to follow-through and come clean with voters in New Hampshire’s First District on their pledge to support Trump for president.  

Ashooh recently told NH1 last month that he wouldn’t commit until Trump had the nomination. With Ted Cruz leaving the race last night and John Kasish leaving today, Ashooh is left with little choice.

Carol Shea-Porter, candidate for Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st District,  has already called on Frank Guinta to denounce Trump’s deeply offensive statements. Guinta told NHPR in March that he will support the eventual nominee.

Shea-Porter additionally called on Guinta to return a personal contribution Trump made to Guinta’s re-election campaign earlier last year. Frank Guinta refused to comment to WMUR on whether he’d return the contribution.

“Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, Rich Ashooh and Frank Guinta need to admit to Granite State voters that they pledged to blindly support their nominee, including Donald Trump and his ignorant and dangerous views. We already know where Frank Guinta’s loyalties lie, as he refused to condemn Donald Trump for his hateful and divisive remarks, and he has also refused to return the campaign money he took from Trump earlier last year,” said Shea-Porter. “Rich Ashooh and Frank Guinta have already said that they will commit to supporting the eventual nominee, so now Granite Staters will see whether Ashooh and Guinta will follow through on their promise to Republican voters."
