Grassroots group endorses Governor Chris Sununu’s re-election, former Executive Councilor David Wheeler, six state legislative candidates
CONCORD, NH – Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire (AFP-NH) on Thursday announced its first round of political endorsements for the 2020 election. The endorsements include six candidates for the New Hampshire House of Representatives, former Executive Councilor David Wheeler, and Governor Chris Sununu as he seeks reelection. These candidates, if elected, will champion policies to protect prosperity for all Granite Staters, work to ensure no government barriers stand in the way of the American dream, and lead on solutions that tackle the state’s greatest challenges.
AFP-NH will use a range of tactics, including its signature grassroots efforts, to urge voters to support these candidates that will build broad-based policy coalitions to drive principled reforms.
AFP-NH State Director Greg Moore issued the following statement:
“Our state has shown that when we remove government barriers that are holding people back, we can increase opportunity and prosperity for every Granite Stater. We’re excited to back these candidates that have demonstrated leadership and are willing to help increase access to quality, affordable health care, educational opportunity, and ensure government lives within its means – as every Granite State family is forced to do. These individuals have a proven track record and helped lead the state to a thriving economy and vibrant expansion of liberty.
“Especially now, we need leaders who embody our state’s motto of ‘Live Free or Die’. These candidates helped make our state the leading beacon of growth and opportunity in the Northeast and will continue to lead the way. We will mobilize our activists in support of these candidates and educate Granite Staters on why they should send them to Concord.”
