New Hampshire: Guinta Meets With NRCC About 1st District
NRCC | February 26, 2009

Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta made his second visit to the National Republican Congressional Committee this week to discuss challenging Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D) next year.

Guinta met with top officials at the NRCC on Tuesday. Those familiar with the meeting say the NRCC is reaching out to Guinta and urging him to consider a bid, but the Republican might also run for re-election or for governor in 2010…

..The 1st district had historically been a fairly safe district for Republicans until 2006, and the GOP will need to target incumbents like Shea-Porter if they are to regain some of the ground lost over the past two elections. The district voted for former President George W. Bush in 2004 and 2000 with 51 percent and 49 percent, respectively, but President Barack Obama carried the district with 53 percent in 2008.
