Romney Ryan Campaign Turns NH Voters Away While Busing In Others From Out Of State

Romney Ryan Campaign Turns NH Voters Away While Busing In Others From Out Of State

by NH LABOR NEWS

Being the "First in the Nation" primary state many people consider politics to be New Hampshire's unofficial sport. Granite Staters are well-informed when it comes to candidates. I myself like to listen to both sides before I make a decision on who I will vote for. This is why New Hampshire has so many registered "Independent" voters. However at a local Romney Ryan campaign stop New Hampshire voters were turned away in favor of busloads of Massachusetts residents.

Like many of the campaign stops in the Granite State, candidates like to give away tickets to the event. They usually send you to their website to register, and hope you will also "support" their campaign at the same time. This was no different for the Romney Ryan campaign.

The Republican Presidential campaign issued tickets online to New Hampshire voters, then sent an email late last night cancelling tickets for New Hampshire voters less than 12 hours before the event began. The following is a copy of an email received by one local voter around 11:00 pm last night:

From: "Eventbrite" <orders@eventbrite.com>
Date: August 19, 2012 11:14:59 PM EDT
To: (email)
Subject: Order CANCELED for Victory Town Hall with Mitt Romney Paul Ryan and the GOP Team
Reply-To: trupp@mittromney.com

Image of cancelation letter

The most appalling part of this email was that right now is that the cancellation message was that it appears that it was only sent to registered Democrats. A well-known Occupy NH member, and registered undeclared voter, gained entry without problem.

Some Granite Staters had not seen the campaign email before departing for the event this morning, and were notified of the cancellation only after waiting in line and presenting their printed tickets at the event door around 8:00 a.m. Romney staff promptly escorted blackballed individuals offsite; meanwhile several buses bearing Massachusetts license plates were seen unloading passengers at the event location.

2. More fraud from the Rmoney/Rayn team.

This needs to be front-page news nationwide and loudly ridiculed.

10. I watched some of this and it was kinda funny how the questions asked by the audience

were scripted. Especially the one from an American Legion member that ask about Afghanistan (the war Obama got us into) and how the etc,etc..So as I read about the busing it becomes clearer and as I think about this it just seemed like the audience were like robots with signs and a applause button.

12. I have no doubt.

The reTHUGs do like "safe" venues and "friendly" audiences. Cowardly, chicken-shit bullies, as always.

13. YES

Some of the people that asked questions were State Senator Candidate and Jennifer Horn a Former GOP Candidate for Congress and known endorser of MITTens. Neither gave their names when they asked questions but many reporters knew them already.

8. Hey, stuffing the ballot box and the campaign appearances worked for Bush, jr.

I guess Romney and Ryan figure it'll work for them.

14. So how does having

people outside of the state translate to NH residents voting for him?

16. Outside Support

The reason he is bringing people in from MA is because it gives the appearance that he has more support in New Hampshire than he really does. NH is a "swing state" and if people in NH and around the country start to see NH shifting toward Romney then they might start to believe it too. The other reason is that he wants to have bigger crowds than the POTUS who was also in the state over the weekend.

It is all a numbers game.

19. These two are really pathetic.

They can't be trusted. It seems all they do is scheme. It's all show, no substance. And that's Romney in a nutshell.

21. I believed from day one that he was paying

people to attend his "few people still" rallies.

Where is that football field in Michigan with no one there?
Found it but you must keep scrolling the link to see the close in shot
vs. the REAL DEAL.

Still, the media is nice to him now ~ he must pay the camera men to do "close in shots" because the crowds are tiny.
