State Rep. Frank Edel­blut (R) on Tues­day touted his 100% score by the state chapter of Amer­ic­ans for Prosper­ity. “The AFP-NH score­card shows that” state Sen. Jean­ie For­res­t­er (R) “earned a ‘C’ rat­ing.”

Edel­blut: “It is clear from the AFP-NH’s score­card that I am the proven con­ser­vat­ive in the race for Gov­ernor. Amer­ic­ans for Prosper­ity-NH is New Hamp­shire’s fisc­al con­ser­vat­ive and eco­nom­ic liberty voice and I am glad to have earned a 100% rat­ing on their 2016 Score­card.” (re­lease)

MIXED RE­CORD. “As the son of a former gov­ernor and broth­er of a past U.S. sen­at­or,” Ex­ec­ut­ive Coun­cilor’s Chris Sununu’s (R) “name re­cog­ni­tion gives him an early boost in the race to re­place” Gov. Mag­gie Has­san (D). “It’s also mak­ing him the top tar­get of his rivals in a crowded GOP primary field where each of the can­did­ates is re­l­at­ively un­known.”

Sununu: “Am I the front run­ner? Prob­ably. … That’s prob­ably why my op­pon­ents want to take quick shots at me as best as they can.” (AP)
