Republican 1st District hopefuls meet in debate
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Republicans competing for a chance to take on U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter in November are facing each other in a televised debate.
Former U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta, University of New Hampshire administrator Dan Innis and former Seabrook selectman Brendan Kelly are seeking the Republican nomination in the Sept. 9 primary. The winner will face Shea-Porter, a Democrat who was elected in 2006 and 2008, ousted by Guinta in 2010 and reclaimed the seat in 2012. Everett Jabour is also on the GOP ballot.
Tuesday night's debate on WMUR-TV is the first of four the station will host this week. Second District candidates will debate on Wednesday, followed by U.S. Senate hopefuls on Thursday and gubernatorial candidates on Friday.Associated Press
