Long time conservative activist and candidate Ovide Lamontagne appears to have pulled into second place in the Republican race for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire.

Ovide is a proven budget hawk and fiscal conservative. He will fight to end the out-of-control spending in Washington, D.C. He will seek to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law, a plan that baffles health care professionals.

Attorney General Kelly Ayotte has the lead based on name recognition and institutional support, but the state would be much better served by having a candidate with strong, consistent conservative values.

Ovide is a constitutionalist. He believes that we do not need bigger government, higher taxes or increased spending. He opposes the nomination of activist judges. He will protect our individual rights, freedoms and liberties.

Businessman Jim Bender is also a strong candidate, but polls show him in last place, making Ovide the best chance to grab the nomination away from the candidate of the power brokers.

Ovide is a pro-life, pro-traditional family, social conservative. He advocates educational choice – including home schooling. He is a man of faith, conviction and integrity.

The attorney general's office in New Hampshire is an appointed position, so Ayotte's run for Judd Gregg's seat is her first, and she's been less than impressive on the stump. Stopping leftist Paul Hodes from winning the seat is vital, and Ayotte is looking like a poor choice of the task. Vote Ovide.
