State Sen. Andy Sanborn (R) met with the National Republican Congressional Committee on a trip to Washington, D.C. last week to discuss challenging Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D), according to GOP sources in Washington. He was “ was accompanied by veteran Granite State Republican strategist Ethan Zorfas, a former chief of staff and a top political adviser to” former Rep. Frank Guinta (R).
Sanborn could be a formidable opponent. He “is one of the top conservative voices in the State House. He’s chairman of the Senate Ways and Means Committee and an influential member of the important Election Law and Internal Affairs Committee.” (NH1)
