New Hampshire Union Leader endorses Ovide Lamontagne

August 29, 2010

  The New Hampshire Union Leader has decided to endorse Ovide Lamontagne in the Republican primary for United States senate.

Here is what the Union Leader said in its endorsement, reprinted in full:

Ovide Lamontagne is our choice for the U.S. Senate.

He is not the flashiest candidate. He certainly is not the richest. He isn’t the favorite of the bigtime professional pols or the Washington crowd.

Ovide is just a smart-as-a-whip, honest, hard-working son of New Hampshire who says what he believes. What he believes makes sense to save our nation from economic ruin; and he will stick to it come hell, high water, or demands from party bosses to “go along and get along.”

We have been impressed by the number of grassroots conservatives backing Ovide. They are not the best-known, prominent Republicans (those have tended to line up with one or another of the presumed “favorites”).

The people backing Ovide Lamontagne have been in the trenches for conservative causes and principles. They know their man and consider him, by far, the most capable person to make the tough choices needed at a crucial time for our country. They also know he can win in November.

We agree. We hope you will, too.

  While Kelly Ayotte and Bill Binnie continue to hammer each other Ovide Lamontagne continues to run a grassroots campaign. He is still a longshot to pull off this victory but I honestly feel that he is the best conservative candidate in the race and I ask that all undecided voters please step away from the two frontrunners and take a look at Ovide’s oath before making your decision.

    This appears to be one of those situations where you have to go for the best candidate. You might want to nominate them for Ten Buck Fridays over at Right klik’s place.
