With the upcoming primaries only weeks away and the general election only a few months away, campaigns are in high gear all across New Hampshire. Both Democrats and Republicans are attending fairs and meeting constituents; talking to people about issues and explaining their platforms. Most people are positive and excited to talk about their candidacy and why they are the right person for the State Legislature but there is a disturbing and very negative trend among Democrats that is the antithesis of what New Hampshire residents represent – negativity and lies about their opposition. It seems that Obama’s and the national Democrats’ negative, smearing campaign style has ‘trickled down’ into the state and local level.
At the Kingston Days event this weekend both Democrats and Republicans had tents to provide information to voters. The Rockingham Republican Committee had information available for candidates in Rockingham County as well as the gubernatorial candidates, Kevin Smith and Ovide Lamontagne. They also had Romney signs and information. The Kingston Democrats (no website found) had some information regarding candidates but they also had printed up lies about State Senator Russell Prescott’s votes in the legislature. The information about the Democrat running against him, Carol Croteau, was simply a piece of paper asking for a donation with a website listed and nothing else.
The Democrats also had signs on their tent like ‘Don’t Touch My Medicare’, which is amusing since Obama cut $500 billion from Medicare in Obamacare. They of course had the union solidarity sign (because public sector unions are all about bigger government and higher taxes, just like Democrats) and even an ‘I Stand with Planned Parenthood’ sign because Democrats love wasting taxpayer dollars on organizations that don’t need it. The worst part is that they were lying about a State Senator rather than telling the truth or promoting their own candidate. And he probably wasn’t the only one.
