Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) is obsessed with her 2014 re-election campaign and trying to figure out which Republicans will run against her, sources tell NH Journal.
According to sources, Shea-Porter religiously checks Google alerts for any and all mentions of her name and the names of her prospective opponents, especially Republican Executive Councilor Chris Sununu. “She checks Facebook and Twitter almost constantly,” one of the sources said.
According to one source, Shea-Porter is obsessively focused on Chris Sununu because she has already defeated Frank Guinta once and she feels she can do so again. But Chris Sununu seems to occupy most of her thoughts. Ever since Sununu announced he may run for Congress in the First District, Shea-Porter has prohibited staff and family members from skiing at the Waterville Valley Resort, which is owned by the Sununu family.
Shea-Porter let the mask slip a bit last weekend during a bizarre interview on WMUR. In the interview, she claimed Sununu “was trying to follow various staff members’ families on Twitter, so he’s obviously interested” in running.
