NH Dem State Legislator Endorses McCain-Palin

12 Sep

Big news in NH Dem politics. Former Hillary supporter, State Rep. Doreen Howard (D) supports McCain/Palin.

Here’s the press release from camp McCain:


MANCHESTER, NH — The McCain-Palin campaign today announced that New Hampshire State Representative Doreen Howard, a Democratic legislator from Newmarket, has endorsed John McCain for president. Representative Howard previously supported Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s candidacy.

“As a lifelong Democrat who enthusiastically backed Hillary Clinton in the primaries, I am now supporting John McCain. Like Senator Clinton, McCain values the importance of public service. Both Clinton and McCain put country first and that’s critically important,” said Howard. “John McCain and Sarah Palin are mavericks who have proven they can deliver real reform. As our nation faces challenges at home and abroad, Americans will benefit from their experience, judgment and strong leadership.”

Elected in 2006, Representative Howard is a member of the State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee. She represents Newmarket and Newfields.

Representative Howard supported John Kerry in 2004 and Al Gore in 2000.

This is just another example of how this election is not about party, it’s about country. People are willing to vote against the Dem party candidate if they believe the other candidate is better suited for the job.

I keep thinking we wouldn’t be in this mess if Hillary had been the candidate not Obama.

During the Charlie Gibson interview of Palin on ABC News with Charlie Gibson, Palin said she thought Obama made a mistake not selecting Hillary for VP. I couldn’t agree more and I would guess State Rep. Doreen Howard might agree too.
