RLCNH endorsed or recommended candidates were successful in the primary
September 13, 2012

124 out of 145 of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire endorsed or recommended candidates successfully advanced past the September 11th New Hampshire Republican Primary.

That means 86% of the RLCNH endorsed or recommended candidates were nominated as Republican candidates and will appear on a general election ballot on November 6th. The 124 candidates include 116 are candidates for state representative, 6 candidates for state senator and 2 candidates for executive councilor.

“As an organization that is trying to push the envelope in the Republican Party to bring liberty and prosperity to New Hampshire by electing liberty-minded, conservative legislators, these consistent results indicate that our efforts so far have been successful,” said Carolyn McKinney, chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire.

Good news. I hope for their continued success.

Glad to read this.

And there are still people

And there are still people say we should leave the GOP.... amazing how much can be done within the party if you keep at it... KEEP AT IT!!

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Any idea how many are RP people?


It is really hard to tell

It is really hard to tell without personally interviewing all of them.

As you may know, 40% of the US legislators that endorsed Ron Paul live in New Hampshire. Here are the stats on that.

Ron Paul endorsing incumbents running for reelection:
33 New Hampshire legislators endorsed Ron Paul. 26 of them ran for reelection. 24 of them made it through the New Hampshire Republican Primary. That is a 92% success rate for Ron Paul endorsing incumbent legislators, so far.

won Andy Sanborn (he was a state senator when he endorsed Ron Paul) 61%

We have been working at this

We have been working at this in NH since before Ron Paul's 2008 run. We are not trying to take anything over. But yes, we are welcomed here.

If you can truly speak for a whole state that's great.

You may be more welcomed their but I know better than to think I will be welcomed in power when my being in power turns the ship away from the direction that some want. I'm sure though that NH has a more Liberty leaning population because we took that state in a landslide both elections, correct?

True about the election success in NH

I know the last Republican governor of New Hampshire joined up with the Free State Project as a friend of the FSP. The US Senator replaced by Sen. Ayotte was a keynote speaker at an FSP event (back when he was the least bad US Senator in the US, before Rand Paul became an US Senator), the last Republican candidate for governor campaigned at Porcfest, the Speaker of the House welcomes us to his meetings and offers to train us and the NH Senate Majority Leader likes that FSPers are moving to NH.

I agree about the election successes in NH. In 2010 more pro-liberty candidates were elected in New Hampshire than the other 49 states combined. That is why it is easy to beleive that 40% of all of the elected legislators in America that endorsed Ron Paul in 2012 live in New Hampshire. More of the NH legislators would have endorsed Ron Paul but a few of them actually endorsed Gary Johnson. That didn't happen in any other state.

The Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire is not the Republican Liberty Caucus of New York.

The RLCNH has different levels of support for different candidates. It actively supports some candidates with money, volunteers or websites.
"Of further note from Tuesday’s primary election, 26 of the 32 candidates RLCNH actively supported heading into the primary, or 81 percent, advanced to their general election contest. These are the candidates who received financial assistance, Web site development, dedicated election-day volunteers or other active support in their campaigns."

The RLCNH also has both endorsed and recommended candidates.
"Endorsed Republicans earned a score of 85 percent or higher on the 2012 RLCNH Legislative Scorecard if they were incumbents, or they scored an 85 percent or higher on the 2012 RLCNH Candidate Survey if they were first-time candidates. They were also rated on their overall understanding of liberty. A recommended candidate earned this lower standard for scoring at least 80 percent on the scorecard or survey and generally supporting the RLCNH’s Liberty and Prosperity for New Hampshire agenda."
