DGA, RGA Up Quickly in N.H. Governor's Race

September 13, 2012

Wasting no time after Tuesday's gubernatorial primary, both the Republican Governors Association and a group funded by the Democratic Governors Association are already up on the air in New Hampshire.

The RGA launched its first TV ad Thursday, hitting Democratic nominee Maggie Hassan for supporting tax increases while serving as state Senate Majority Leader.

New Hampshire Freedom Fund began running an ad Wednesday, attacking GOP nominee Ovide Lamontagne for working as a "registered lobbyist for big tobacco" and for running as "a tea party politician."

This is one race where the RGA and DGA will be fighting it out all fall, and where the candidates themselves won't have a lot of control over their message -- particularly Hassan, who only had $100,000 left in her campaign coffers as of late August.
