Aug 2 2015


For the first time, 14 Republican presidential candidates will be taking questions from Granite Staters at the Voters First Forum being hosted at Saint Anselm College tonight.


Readers of the New Hampshire Union Leader, along with partner news organizations in Iowa and South Carolina, sent thousands of responses when asked what they would like to hear the candidates talk about.


The top two on their minds: Immigration and the economy. Moderator Jack Heath will ask about those topics, among dozens of others, during the 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. event.


Taking part tonight will be Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, Scott Walker, Rick Santorum, George Pataki, Bobby Jindal and Dr. Ben Carson. Donald Trump declined to participate.

14 No Trump—Grading the Candidates

by Roger L Simon

August 4, 2015-6:23 AM


Something called the “Voters First Forum” was held Monday night at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, with 14, count ‘em, 14 Republican candidates doing a kinda, sorta rehearsal for Fox’s big debate on Thursday night. For that one, only the top 10 (by polling) are invited, the others being remanded to an early show that afternoon, an electoral Siberia watched primarily by baby sitters.


For this one, three were MIA — Mike Huckabee (“scheduling conflict”), Jim Gilmore (“declared too late”) and Donald Trump. His Trumpesty was apparently miffed the New Hampshire Union Leader, one of the sponsors of the event with newspapers from Iowa and South Carolina, had mocked his treatment of John McCain in an editorial, so he demurred. Or perhaps the frontrunner is already “doing a Hillary,” making himself inaccessible. Someone should warn him that hasn’t worked out so well for Our Lady of Chappaqua. Scissors-32x32.png
