NH Journal’s THE PRIMER – TUESDAY, JUNE 5, 2012


BREAKING: DGA TO DOUSE NH AIRWAVES – More evidence that the New Hampshire governor's race is going to be one of the nation's most closely-watched.  NH Journal has learned that the Democratic Governor's Association has reserved over $1.4 million of television ad space on WMUR during the weeks preceding the November general election.  Our intel indicates that the DGA will be dropping a cool $1,430,000 between Oct. 2nd and Nov. 6th.


OVIDE RAKING IT IN – NH Journal hears Ovide Lamontagne had an exceedingly successful fundraising week that, when the details come out, will help make plain to most political observers that he deserves the title of frontrunner for the Corner Office in 2012.  Everyone NHJ talks to in Ovide-land tells us the campaign is a machine.  And as NH Journal’s most recent poll showed, he is posting strong numbers among Republican primary voters.  Stay tuned for more details as additional fundraising numbers begin to emerge.
