CONCORD, N.H.―The Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire is urging Tea Party activists, movement conservatives and all party members who love liberty to convert their frustration over Republican Chairman Jack Kimball’s resignation tonight into resolve to join the RLCNH and help elect more people like themselves to positions in the state Legislature. “Jack Kimball’s resignation from the party chairman position was the right thing for him to do to help unify the Republican Party and help everyone involved with the party move beyond this unfortunately divisive situation,” said Andrew Hemingway, chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire. “Now it is time for activists and party leaders to cooperate and bring the party together so we can prepare for the First in the Nation Primary and victory in the 2012 elections. We have shown repeatedly that our influence and will to serve the people is so much stronger when we work together with Republicans of all varieties to advance the founding principles that made our state and nation great. “In addition, Jack Kimball’s resignation from the chairman position is the perfect opportunity for Tea Party activists, movement conservatives and all liberty-loving Republicans to unite under another common goal; namely, working with the RLCNH to elect more principled and effective Republicans who value limited government, individual liberty, personal responsibility, free enterprise and the New Hampshire and United States constitutions,” Hemingway added. The Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire endorsed 153 candidates in the 2010 primary, and 107 of those liberty-loving candidates, or 70 percent, were elected into state representative, state senator and executive council positions. Since taking their positions, RLCNH-endorsed elected officials have cut the state budget by $1 billion and passed several pro-business and pro-family pieces of legislation, which will help create a better quality of life in New Hampshire. With more people volunteering to help the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire and its effort to elect principled Republicans, common sense will undoubtedly become more common within the halls of government, and that will reflect positively on the New Hampshire economy and its ability to create private sector jobs. “Those people in the government and their friends in the media who want us to fail so they can take more of your money to increase the size of government will attempt to make Jack Kimball’s resignation into a repudiation of our movement or as a sign that the Republican Party is falling apart, but we believe the people will see through such politicking and recognize the good that Republicans have done in just one year to create an affordable government that respects the rights of individuals and families,” Hemingway said. “The movement led by the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire to restore our founding principles is much larger than one man or one woman. Looking at the big picture, the successes or failures of one member of this movement are far less important than the success of the effort to restore liberty in America and within the State of New Hampshire. “We are confident that the people of New Hampshire believe in what RLCNH-endorsed officials are doing in the Legislature and will continue to support those officials and new liberty-minded candidates who stick with our founding principles,” Hemingway added. “We are also confident that our effort will always be more effective and will always have a home within the Republican Party, regardless of who is chairman of the organization.” To join the RLCNH, sign up using the box in the top right corner of the page.
