A Really Big Tent

By now you probably know that Hillsborough-4 Rep and Speaker of the House wannnabe Bill O’Brien has asked voters in his district to  “Write him in on the Democratic Ticket”.

Being a gracious man, Party Chair Ray Buckley seized the opportunity to make sure the Republican voters of the distinct new that they had a new option on the Democratic Ticket with this call into the district:

This is State Democratic Chair Ray Buckley calling with the important news that current Republican Bill O’Brien has asked to join the Democratic Party’s ticket for the November elections.

If he succeeds tomorrow, we expect Bill O’Brien will embrace the Democratic Party’s  platform, support President Barack Obama,
national health care reform and stand up for gay marriage, and protect a woman’s right to choose and our agenda to move NH and America forward.

Once again, we wanted you to know before you vote tomorrow that Bill O’Brien has asked to join the Democratic ticket and our  progressive agenda. Thank you so much.

Important Note: I think we can probably be a bit too obtuse around here sometimes, just so its clear, Democrats in Hillsborough-4 are encouraged to vote for Jennifer Daler, AnDrew French, Theo Groh, and write-in Kary Jencks.

    gracious of you, Raymond. I feel certain that Rep. O’Brien did not respond in kind.

    And O’Brien deserved every word of it.

    It is a completely appropriate follow up to his mailer.

    Thank you to the NH Democratic Party for being so supportive and stepping up to the plate to help our “little,” strangely-configured district… While I haven’t seen the results yet, I am myself, personally grateful for your quick mobilization!

    O’Brien received a grand total of 4 write in votes.

    Kary Jencks received 176 write ins!  Congratulations Kary!

    O’Brien’s numbers in the Republican primary were significantly lower than in past years, by the way…

      I only had New Boston results, from Kary Jencks stating that O’Brien had 3 write-in votes, and she had 126…

      So that means his BIG mailing gained 4 Dem votes, but no telling how many Republican votes he lost because of his antics…

      Can’t wait for the analysis…
