In 2006 and 2008, the people of the First Congressional District sent Shea-Porter to Congress, and she was our advocate and ally. Our interests were her interests. She was swept out during the Republican tidal wave of 2010, but we firmly believe that the tide has turned and that the First District is once again ready for more reasonable and productive representation in Congress.
[W]e solidly endorse Shea-Porter. We don’t want ObamaCare repealed, we don’t have a problem with rich people kicking in a few extra tax dollars, and won’t support Tea Party social conservatives who are in powerful enough political positions, like a congressman, to take away civil rights such as same-sex marriage and the right for women to choose.
