Democrats Leading the Way

Tuesday, January 23, 2007



The New Hampshire Democratic Party today announced that U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), who officially entered the 2008 Presidential campaign last Saturday, has accepted its invitation to be the guest speaker at its annual "100 Club" Dinner in Nashua on March 10, 2007.

"Senator Clinton is a dynamic, articulate leader who will be welcomed to the Granite State stage with tremendous excitement," said Kathy Sullivan, Chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party. "We're honored Senator Clinton has agreed to be a part of a very special evening for New Hampshire Democrats."

The "100 Club" Dinner, first held in 1959, was originally organized by New Hampshire supporters of then U.S. Senator John F. Kennedy of Massachusetts as a way to raise his profile among Granite State Democrats and Presidential Primary voters.

Since then, the "100 Club" has been the premiere fundraising event for the New Hampshire Democratic Party, and has featured some of the most influential Democrats in the nation, including Presidents Kennedy and Clinton. Recent guests have also included U.S. Senators John Kerry, Joe Lieberman and John Edwards; Governors Howard Dean and Mark Warner; and Vice President Al Gore.

Sen. Sununu Gives Up On New Hampshire

Speaking to local economic leaders last week, Senator John Sununu told the crowd to stop complaining about the sky-rocketing cost of healthcare and that they shouldn’t bother to worry any more because there is no solution for the foreseeable future. Senator Sununu proved once again that he has little interest in addressing the healthcare crisis or trying to make healthcare more affordable for New Hampshire families.

The reason there has been no solution to the healthcare crisis is that Sen. Sununu along with his Republican cronies in Washington have been more worried about helping insurance companies profit billions than in addressing the healthcare crisis in this country.

According to, over the course of his career, Sununu has taken $288,238 from the health care industry, including both individual donations and PAC money. His largest contributor over the course of his career has been Fisher Scientific International, a medical supply company that has donated $61,500 to Sununu.

Sununu also strongly supported President Bush's plan to privatize Social Security, a plan that put seniors' security at risk.

Thank you all for all your help!! Now, it's time to get to work, so we can make sure that we stay blue in 2008!

As New Hampshire goes, so does the country...

In a year where a the country seems to be calling out for change, New Hampshire is turning into a bellweather state that currently mirrors the make up of the country: it is too close to call.

Two supposedly entrenched Congressional candidates are fighting for their political lives and Democrats look poised to possibly regain the majority in the State Senate for the second time since 1911 and possibly even the State Legislature for the first time ever.

We are so close, very close, to making this an incredible year to be a New Hampshire Democrat. We just need you to get out and vote on Tuesday! Brings your family to the polls, bring your friends to the polls, bring your co-workers to the polls, bring your dog to the polls (obviously your dog can't vote, but why not walk the dog and vote at the same time! It's a two for one deal).

Please cast your vote on Election Day and we can begin to make the changes necessary to move New Hampshire and the country forward.

If you don't know where your polling location is, you need a ride to the polls, or you want to help out and volunteer, give us a call at (603) 625-0010 and we'll give you all the information you need.

We have received word that households are receiving numerous, misleading automated phone calls that sound as if they are coming from Paul Hodes when they in fact are NOT. These calls potentially violate New Hampshire election law and need to be stopped immediately.
We have seen it before from Republican operatives in New Hampshire. This is an example of a last minute desperate attempt by forces who are scrambling in the face of potential defeat on Tuesday.

If you receive any suspicious phone calls, please listen carefully and save the recording on your answering machines. Call Kathleen Strand at the New Hampshire Democratic Party at (603) 625-0010 or email

Also, if you have received one of these misleading calls from the NRCC, you can report it at where people from across New Hampshire can report dirty campaign tricks from the Republican Party and hold them accountable.
