The 2012 elections saw the return to a progressive-to-moderate New Hampshire Senate when we saw the re-election of progressive Democrat Peggy Gilmour.

Kevin Avard, of Nashua, will bring the Constitutional conservative’s version of positive “Hope & Change” with his election to the 2014 state Senate.

Recall the 2012’s moderate-liberal version of the senate’s Republican members: Chuck Morse, Nancy Stiles, David Boutin, Bob Odell and Jeb Bradley. These are the people who gave us an increase in gasoline taxes (at a time we can ill afford it) and Medicaid expansion, which will result in New Hampshire’s first income tax.

So, who is Sen. Leader Morse “pushing” in Senate District 12? Why, Michael McCarthy, of course. McCarthy is an avid public sector union member and supporter who was elected to the New Hampshire House in a special election.

Mr. McCarthy is an anti-Right-to-Work candidate who, according to his palm-card, wants lower taxes. Wow, where have we heard that before? I believe Democrats use that same line, and then … well, guess what?

Does an “Anti Right-to-Work GOP candidate really fit in with the GOP’s platform? I’ll let you decide.
