New Hampshire liberals declare war on U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin
New Hampshire U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin says New Hampshire liberals have finally discovered who can take on and defeat Jeanne Shaheen: Andy. In an editorial partly praising Andy and partly making typically fraudulent Democratic smears against him, Foster’s Daily Democrat declares Andy as one tough campaigner who will not shrink from the difficult job of attacking Jeanne Shaheen. Other Republicans have failed to defeat Shaheen. Discredited has-beens such as Scott Brown and Bob Smith are trying to make a comeback. Andy is the only candidate that scares Democrats. Andy is Granite State tough and battle-hardened by having led opposition to Barack Obama over the past ten years. Andy is the only Republican who promises a real slugfest to defeat Shaheen. No other Republican comes close to being a serious opponent

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin responds to Foster’s Daily Democrat attacks
Andy says New Hampshire liberals have finally discovered what Republicans have not, that Andy is the only senate candidate who promises a relentless attack on Jeanne Shaheen
Andy says if Republicans do not have the same stomach for battle that Democrats do, Shaheen will be reelected
(Manchester, NH) (March 6, 2014)
The 2014 Republican primary for U. S. Senate is over. Without realizing it, the liberal Democratic newspaper Foster’s Daily Democrat has spilled the beans.
The obvious implication of Foster’s editorial attacks on me are that if you want to reelect Jeanne Shaheen, you can vote for Scott Brown, Bob Smith and the other Republican retreads.
If you want to defeat Jeanne Shaheen, I am the man the liberals fear.
A couple of days ago you read a few humorous comments I wrote about my opponents. Not even remotely did my remarks constitute “gutter politics.” Gutter behavior is impugning someone’s loyalty, or trafficking in a sex scandal, or lying about an opponent. I merely saw the humor in my opponents. They take themselves very seriously, which is why New Hampshire Republicans keep losing.
Democrats called George Bush a Nazi, a Hitler and a murderer. Obama ran TV ads calling Mitt Romney a murderer. But Andy’s chiding of Scott Brown & Co. is “in the gutter.”
The real joke is on Republicans if they continue to consider Brown or Smith or the others as serious opponents for Shaheen. The liberals are going to come at them with vicious attacks, the same way they directed their lies at Mitt Romney. Remember Senator Harry Reid’s “no tax returns” attacks on Romney. Now that’s gutter politics. Foster’s didn’t see Reid’s lies as being in the gutter. Foster’s loved the liberal lies against Romney.
Only one candidate can fight back and take on the Democrats. I have 48 years of experience in television, radio and hardball reform politics. Yes, I am an admitted fighter. That’s what Foster’s Daily Democrat is really scared of.
You can read their attack (see link below) and read my response:
Foster’s is a liberal newspaper and I accept that. But to equate what you call a few “smarmish” comments with “gutter politics” is so totally unreasonable as to be even more humorous than my own remarks. I enjoyed your editorial immensely because once you strip away your vitriolic attacks on me you admit I am what I say I am, a tough campaigner who can turn a phrase. I am not one of the Bob Smith/Scott Brown has-beens some Republicans want to run against Jeanne Shaheen. And I can laugh at the political process.
If Republicans want to defeat Shaheen, I’m ready. That is your real fear, isn’t it? If Republicans want to keep losing to New Hampshire Democrats, they have a menu of familiar zombie candidates to choose from.
The next time I am in your neighborhood I will deliver an official “Foster’s Daily Democrat bathing suit.” You might need it, just in case you get to Hades before I do!
If you want to have any hope of defeating Shaheen you will need to have a standard bearer that is not afraid to attack her, the same way Shaheen’s backers are going to attack the Republican. Remember what Ovide Lamontagne said last year? He was surprised at the intensity of the Democrats’ attacks on him. After Lamontagne spent 16 years as a candidate (1996-2012)? How could Ovide be “surprised” at the intensity of the attacks Democrats unleashed on him?
If Republicans can’t stomach a tough battle then Shaheen wins, and Republicans can keep carping for another six years.
If you nominate me, Shaheen is in for the fight of her life. Remember what President Obama said about his style of politics, about the Democrats’ knives and guns? And, by the way, he won the White House twice as Republicans embarrassingly cratered.
Foster’s Democrat knows the stakes. Do you?
I humbly accept Foster’s endorsement as the Republican best qualified and most experienced to take on Jeanne Shaheen. Fasten your seat belts.
