NH GOP Chair Likens Get-Out-The-Vote Efforts To Drowning Democrats


The chairwoman of the New Hampshire Republican Party turned up her rhetoric Sunday to energize voters ahead of Tuesday’s midterm elections, likening the state GOP’s efforts to turn out the vote to drowning Democratic candidates.

“This is our time. We need to crush it,” Jennifer Horn told supporters at a rally for the GOP’s slate of candidates in Manchester, according to NH Journal. “We need to grab it, run with it, push their heads under over and over again until they cannot breathe anymore. Until elections are over on Tuesday night and we’ve won it all.”

“Waves happen when every single member of a cause or a movement come together with passion and action … You are the wave. I need you out there for the next two days. It will not happen without you,” she added.

The New Hampshire GOP is hoping that voters will sweep Senate candidate Scott Brown, congressional candidates Marilinda Garcia and Frank Guinta and gubernatorial candidate Walt Havenstein into office on Election Day. Those four posts are all currently held by female Democratic incumbents.

The TPM Polltracker average has Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen leading Brown 49.4 percent to 47.6 percent in the New Hampshire Senate contest, one of a handful of races that will likely decide control of the chamber.
