Carol Shea-Porter (NH-1) just announced she is running!

I just got an email from her campaign. :-) And she'll win.

She is running for the United States House of Representatives- District 1. She lost to a teabagger last time.

Democratic voters stayed home. Here's an interesting article regardinga PPP poll that just came out-

Roll Call:

Two GOP Freshmen Poll Unfavorably in New Hampshire

Republicans dominated New Hampshires state and federal elections in the 2010 midterms, but polling released Monday suggests that the states two GOP House freshmen could be in trouble next year.
Just 25 percent of 1st district voters had a favorable opinion of Rep. Frank Guinta, while 42 percent had an unfavorable view, according to a survey by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm. In the 2nd district, only 30 percent had a favorable opinion of Rep. Charles Bass, while 34 percent had an unfavorable opinion.
PPP surveyed 769 registered New Hampshire voters from March 31 to April 3 and reported a margin of error of 3.5 points. The results released Monday did not include any potential head-to-head matchups.
Guinta and Bass won less on their own merits than because a) voters were unhappy with Democrats and b) because Democratic leaning voters stayed home in large numbers, PPP pollster Tom Jensen wrote, suggesting that first-term Members in other states are in similar situations. Voters are now finding that they dont like the Republicans in the House any better than they liked the Democrats.

10. Huh?

Did you read the article I just posted to you? This battle is certainly worth fighting. Carol Shea-Porter is
going to win and by a large margin. Again, democratic voters didn't bother going to the polls. The 2012
elections are a whole different story.

8. I hope this is the beginning of a trend. More of the people wo lost in 10 should come back.
It's just easier because they already have expearience, can raise the money, and proven taht they can win.
