Republican primary voters in the Second Congressional District have received a series of mailers touting Bob Burns over Keene Mayor George Hansel as the most pro-Trump choice in the GOP field. While campaigning ads declaring an “America First” candidate isn’t unusual in a GOP primary, the mailers did not come from a GOP candidate. They were sent by Reynolds DeWalt, a Democratic political mail shop based in New Bedford, Mass.
“It would appear to me, as a direct mail professional, that the Democrat effort to meddle in GOP primaries has come to New Hampshire,” said Chuck McGee, a Republican who handles political and corporate communications at Spectrum Marketing. “I’ve never seen this in my 30 years of working in New Hampshire politics. Clearly, the Democrats are worried about Annie Kuster but I don’t think these illegal mailing will help in the long run.”
