State Senators Bill Gannon, Bob Guida Endorse Andy Sanborn for Congress

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 9/9/2018
PRESS CONTACT:  Press@AndySanborn.com, (603) 644-9531

MANCHESTER, NH–Today, State Senators Bill Gannon (District 23) and Bob Guida (District 2) announced their endorsements of Andy Sanborn in the 1st District congressional race.

 

“Andy has always been a reliable conservative vote in the State Senate, and has always fought for the interests of his constituents above all else. There’s no doubt in my mind that he will do the same in Washington,” said Sen. Gannon. “We live in an era where many Republicans no longer act like Republicans. They say one thing on the campaign trail then do something entirely different once elected. We need more conservatives like Andy in Congress that we can rely on to keep their campaign promises. I am happy to give him my full support and endorsement, and look forward to finally returning a real conservative to Congress in November.”

 

In his endorsement, Sen. Guida said, “I’m endorsing Republican Andy Sanborn for CD-1. Not a single challenge has been leveled against his 8-year voting record on thousands of bills and amendments important to the people, businesses and institutions of New Hampshire. And that’s what matters here. Neither candidate is without blemish. But only one has been in the legislative arena, and held fast to the things Republicans believe. At the end of the day, performance matters. Andy Sanborn deserves your vote.”

 

“I am proud to have Sen. Gannon’s and Sen. Guida’s support in my race. As colleagues in the State Senate, I could always rely on them to join me in doing what was right for New Hampshire, and I am honored that they have recognized that I am the proven conservative choice in this election,” said Sanborn. “Both of them understand that I went to Concord for one reason and one reason only: to fight for the conservative values that my constituents mandated me to represent. I never considered how my votes would affect the agendas of my fellow senators. I fought solely on behalf of my constituents, which may not have been politically popular, but was undoubtedly what the voters elected me to do. I am happy to see that there are still elected officials out there like Sen. Gannon and Sen. Guida who recognize this, and you can count on me to perform the exact same way in Washington.”

 

Sen. Gannon’s and Sen. Guida’s endorsements of Andy Sanborn come on the heels of an endorsement by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and a state visit from U.S. Senator Rand Paul to support Sanborn’s campaign. Gannon and Guida are joined by former state senators Jim Forsythe, John Gallus, Mark Hounsell, and Sam Cataldo, as well as current state senator, Harold French.

 

With only two days left until the Republican primary election, Andy Sanborn has established himself as the only proven conservative in the race who can be trusted to fight for New Hampshire in Congress.

Sanborn Statement on “Creator” Omission

Sanborn Calls Out Democratic Party for 4th of July Tweet, Disregard of Our Creator
Sanborn Condemns Intentional Omission of Democrat Party

Manchester, NH – Today, Republican Congressional Candidate Andy Sanborn responded to a tweet sent out on the 4th of July by the New Hampshire Democrat Party that intentionally misquoted the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence, omitting the phrase, “by their Creator.” Of note, the tweet is 233  characters and well short of Twitter’s 280 threshold and could have easily included the missing phrase. Sanborn issued the following statement:

“Frankly, the Democrat Party’s blatant disregard for our nation’s founding documents doesn’t come as a surprise anymore, but to intentionally omit the single line of the Preamble that acknowledges that we are endowed by our Creator is a new low. On the Fourth of July, no less,” said Sanborn. “This omission flies in the face of most Granite Staters who believe that we are, in fact, endowed by our Creator.  The Democrat Party’s lack of respect for those who practice faith and for the Declaration of Independence itself, as well as their desire to rewrite and ignore our founding history is appalling and deeply disturbing.”

“We’re now living in an era in which the radicals that are running the Democrat Party believe that our ‘unalienable rights’ should be bestowed upon us solely by government, rather than our God or by virtue of our humanity.” said Sanborn. “I call on Chris Pappas, Maura Sullivan, and Levi Sanders to join me in condemning the position that their party has taken. Not only is it out of touch with the voters of New Hampshire, it is disrespectful to those who do believe in a higher power.”

 

Background

On July 4th, the New Hampshire Democrat Party tweeted out, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed…with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” The quote from the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence was altered to leave out the phrase, “…that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable rights…”

“The support for our campaign continues to grow with residents throughout New Hampshire.

I promise them that when I am elected to represent them in Washington that I will fight for them and their personal liberties and protect their pocketbooks from the lobbyists and special interests.

“As we get closer to the primary election, I know that our grassroots army will only continue to grow and usurp our competition and prove that the message of individual liberty and freedom will prevail. I want to say thank you to all of our endorsers and activists for their strong, resilient support.  They know that talk is cheap and when the heat is on they know that I am the only candidate who can win this race and hold the seat and will stand on the same value set and principles that I have run on since first launching my campaign nearly a year ago.

Diplomacy Works

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Last week, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un announced that North Korea will be ending its nuclear programs.  Shortly following this announcement, Kim met with South Korean president Moon Jae-in to sign a formal document, effectively ending the 65-year conflict between the North and the South.  Moon credited President Trump with contributing in a big way to the “huge” meeting between the two states.

The great news here is that diplomacy worked.  One of the differences between myself and my opponents is they seem all too eager to send troops into foreign places and start wars.  President Trump’s use of diplomacy through strength is what should always be applied first.  And as you know, I believe only Congress has the ability to declare war.

Yet here we are.  We have a mainstream media that has yet to give proper credit to the Trump administration, and we have Democrats that refuse to acknowledge the truly exciting and historic reality that has just occurred.  The President has done what no other President has been able to do: bring some sort of stability and calm to the Korean Peninsula.  He has performed a truly amazing feat and he deserves a great deal of credit.  As always, I believe we should use some cautious optimism here and as Ronald Reagan said “trust but verify.”

As your Congressman, I will stand up to the bullying media and the fall-in-line Democrats when the United States makes history such as this.  The leadership in Washington has become more focused on false narratives and quick “gotcha” clips to the point that it cannot even focus on what is truly important: peace in this world.  As your Congressman, I will advocate for peace and I will advocate for you. Enough is enough.

 

Always working for you,

 

Andy Sanborn

SANBORN STATEMENT ON DAMAGING MEMO RELEASE

SANBORN STATEMENT ON DAMAGING MEMO RELEASE
Memo shows exactly why we must elect principled conservatives who will oversee government actions

 

BEDFORD, NH- Congressional Candidate for New Hampshire’s 1st District and State Senator Andy Sanborn (R-Bedford) released the following statement after news of a memo which outlining how entrenched bureaucrats used the arm of the government to exact a political toll on candidate Trump:

“It is deeply disturbing we now know that Obama government bureaucrats manipulated the FISA court system to spy on candidate Trump’s campaign. This is exactly why we must be more aggressive in draining the swamp. While I have respect for government workers who show up and do their job on a daily basis, we have clearly reached a point in our country where a small minority of senior officials have become brazen enough to use unsubstantiated political documents funded by the Democrat Party as an excuse to authorize wiretaps on a political candidate’s campaign and an American citizen.

“Public servants should operate devoid of any partisanship. This sort of unethical behavior breeds distrust in our government and undermines our democracy to its core.

“Sadly, we see it time and time again when unscrupulous lifelong bureaucrats, like some politicians, become too comfortable in their position and reach a point where they feel emboldened to act out in dishonest manners. When elected to Congress, I will work tirelessly to end this sort of malevolent behavior and fight to restore faith back in our government.”

Release: SANBORN STANDS AGAINST FISA REATHORIZATION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 1/11/2018

SANBORN STANDS AGAINST FISA REATHORIZATION
Will prioritize privacy and restraint while balancing safety

BEDFORD, NH – Following the news that Congress passed the re-authorization of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), State Senator Andy Sanborn issued the following statement outlining his position on the subject:

“As a Congressman, I will always put out nation’s safety at the top of my priority list but that does not mean we should be trading our much-guarded liberties that are enshrined in the Constitution. While I believe that FISA is well intentioned, it is deeply flawed and does not offer much in the way of oversight and due process for American Citizens that might be inadvertently surveilled upon. It is because of this that I would have opposed the re-authorization today, in its current form. The Federal Government and Congress need to ensure real safeguards are in place that protect American Citizen’s Fourth Amendment rights and I am wary of creating any government apparatus that is collecting and processing terabytes of data on daily basis with very little oversight.”
