About Mike "DD4RP" Rossettie

  • MerrimackMan

    Could that mean someone will be getting in soon?

  • not six people to run for Congress in one district.

    I don’t get the reasoning here.

  • A rep seat is winnable on little money (though it obviously helps to have a decent amount). Just go out and knock on thousands of doors. If you started now you could do it on weekends.

    To challenge a sitting Congressman you need probably minimum $300K.

    The state party should insist that anyone running under the GOP banner needs to first stop at their office to have things explained to them.

  • He’s a bright, impressive guy..
