GST surveyed Primary Candidates for Governor, Council, NH House and NH Senate.
219 candidates completed the survey, and 97 of them achieved a score of 100%.
205 Republican responses averaged 94%. 11 Democrat responses averaged 62%.
“2020 Candidate Survey” at the GST website has information on the questions that candidates were asked, scores for each candidate, and a downloadable spreadsheet with candidate answers and their comments on each question.
“Voting records and candidate positions on taxpayer issues impact our choices when voting,” said GST Chairman Ray Chadwick. “GST makes that information available so voters can make an informed choice and vote for candidates who care about Taxpayers.”
