Former Gov. Benson endorses Guinta for Congress
MANCHESTER – Republican 1st District U.S. House candidate and former Rep. Frank Guinta was formally endorsed by former Gov. Craig Benson this morning.
Benson has been a major contributor to Guinta’s past runs for the seat, but this is the first time a formal endorsement has been rolled out.
Guinta in a statement said:
“Governor Benson knows what it takes to balance budgets, cut red tape, and create jobs. His support is a testament to our core message. Washington is broken, we need to elect people who understand that jobs are created by small businesses and entrepreneurs, not government. Having worked in the private sector, started businesses, been the executive of the state’s largest city, I know how to govern and legislate effectively. I am honored to receive Governor Benson’s endorsement and look forward to continuing our Middle-Class Economic Recovery Tour.”
“I have worked with Frank both in the public sector and as a private business man. He is good at identifying problems and fixing them. As Mayor of Manchester he served the people well by keeping a tight rein on spending and by solving problems both big and small. We need Frank back in Congress and I am proud to support him once again.”
