New Hampshire Republicans spoke confidently of making a political comeback as they officially opened their Lakes Region office Monday in downtown Laconia.
Sen. John Sununu who is up for re-election and 1st District congressional candidate Jeb Bradley made a guest appearance at the grand opening for the Lakes Region's headquarters at 664 Main St. for Republican John McCain's campaign for President. The facility will serve Belknap and Carroll counties.
"This is going to be a team effort." said Peter Spaulding, a former executive councilor who was representing presumptive presidential candidate John McCain. "We have great volunteers throughout New Hampshire."
There are five other Republican offices in New Hampshire, located in Concord, Manchester, Nashua, Stratham and Lebanon.
Sununu was excited about the facility. He exclaimed that the New Hampshire GOP is an outstanding organization and he thinks the volunteers will "get out the vote, get out the message."
The senator claims that Republicans understand the issues and challenges today such as energy conservation and rising taxes. He wants to open up offshore drilling, produce more oil and energy alternatives at home and "keep the money in the United States." "We're going to win because we've got the best candidates," Sununu said.
Jeb Bradley, who held the 1st District seat in Congress for two terms before he was defeated two years ago by Democrat Carol Shea-Porter, also made an appearance at the opening and said that "Democrats are after our pocketbooks" and that Shea-Porter promoted multiple tax increases because she wants to spend all our money.
Bradley said he is "ready to take back our state and turn it around and make it red again."

The NH GOP, Belknap County Republicans, and in conjunction with the McCain 2008 will be opening their Laconia office on Monday, August 25th from 5pm to 7pm.
will be dropping by, arriving between 5:00 and 5:15pm and staying for a while to greet any and all Republicans at the new office.
As part of the opening, Robert Brennan Heuchling is looking for for volunteers to help make phone calls to Belknap County and to go door to door in Laconia and other local towns. Our biggest push is to have volunteers in here on Tuesday (8/26) and Thursday (8/28) evenings (or during the day) and on Saturday. Stop by for a few hours or for the whole thing, we will have pizza and light refreshments for lunch.
Since all Republicans and Republican candidates are well, please feel free to stop by to leave your campaign literature and signs. Lists will be available for phone calls and neighborhood walks.
We also have signs, bumper stickers and other goodies to hand out for those that want them.)
All will be welcome!Republican Laconia Office

QUICK HITS FROM THE CHAIRMAN
OK, I'LL ASK: If a nationally prominent Republican did what John Edwards has admitted to, would it get the same level of media coverage?
IMPRESSIVE CANDIDATES: I was one of the crowd of 130 people watching the First CD debate between Jeb Bradley and John Stephen in Ossipee on Monday night, and I have to say both of them were outstanding. Look out, CSP (who was recently rated among the five incumbents most likely to be defeated this year by Politico)!
Congrats to Henry Mock and the Carroll County GOP for putting on a great event.
OUTSTANDING REGIONAL COMMITTEE: Also on Monday, Councilor Ray Burton and I had the honor of doing the ribbon cutting to open the Pemi-Baker Valley GOP's headquarters in Plymouth. Omer Ahern, Henry Ahern, Lud Flower and the whole Pemi-Baker gang have done a model job of re-starting a defunct town committee, and now they have even put together the wherewithal to open and fund a headquarters to support our candidates. If there isn't a town committee in your community but you have the iniative and leadership to start one, contact email@example.com and we will help you get the ball rolling.
LET'S GIVE 'EM SOMETHIN' TO TALK ABOUT: Bonnie Raitt's got some good licks. It's her left-wing, blame America first politics I can do without. But there was Raitt in Concord this week doing a concert to raise money for Jeanne Shaheen. Some of us recall that back in 2000, when sanctions was the extent of our opposition to Saddam Hussein's regime, Raitt signed a letter in the New York Times blaming the US, not Hussein, for causing the deaths "of over one million Iraqis, mostly children under five." Does Shaheen share Raitt's blame America first mindset?
AND THE GOLD MEDAL FOR FLIP-FLOPS GOES TO:
From the NH Reagan Network:
To RSVP you can reach Fran at firstname.lastname@example.org.TO ALL:
Reagan Network is holding an issue forum on Saturday August 9th at the Legislative Office Building (the building behind the state house). (we had requested Reps Hall and were turned down but LOB will work)
It will begin at 9 and should be over at 2. Please let us know if you are coming if possible so we can have an idea on how much to get for lunch. (we don't need to use scarce financial resources buying too much food)
We will be covering ed funding, the budget, energy, second amendment, family values, respect for life, right to work, nanny state legislation and transportation.
It will also be a good opportunity to meet many of our new conservative candidates, although ALL Republican candidates are invited. (some of them could use being reminded where we should be on these issues.....) Please encourage new candidates you know to be sure to come. We know it is busy election time, but felt this was needed before the primary. Thanks.
Feel free to forward.
