POSITION ON ISSUES

The LFDA Survey is the primary source for issue positions on this website. Each election season the Live Free or Die Alliance sends a survey on NH issues to every candidate for state office. We make every effort to reach each candidate by snail-mail, e-mail, and phone. If an issue position is still not answered through our survey, we utilize other resources including voting records, candidate websites, campaign fliers, Project Vote Smart surveys, and more. Any questions or suggestions on issue positions? Contact us.

I want to say that I wish the media would have had you up front from the beginning. Needless to say I thank God you are noticed now. I beg you do not withdraw. Fight to the end. If Trump is elected I myself will live in fear of our countries demise. We cannot have him or Clinton in the office. I pray for you each day and that the truth comes out about both of those candidates before the final election. God be with you.
