The campaign of New Hampshire Republican congressional candidate Grant Bosse today issued a press release attacking Democratic incumbent Paul Hodes for supporting a proposal from Congresswoman and fellow Democrat Carol Shea-Porter that would mandate oil companies to drill on any federally-leased land in their possession. Bosse is running against Hodes for New Hampshire's 2nd District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The press release labeled Shea-Porter--who represents New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District--as a "radical" and cited an editorial from the Union-Leader that referred to the Democrats' proposal as possibly "the dumbest idea of them all." The document also quoted Bosse accusing Hodes of not being "serious about bringing down gas prices" and of trying to "distract voters with gimmicks."
