CloseUp: House bill forces black voters to choose sides



ADAM: WELCOME BACK TO “CLOSE UP”. NEW LEGISLATION IN THE HOUSE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE TARGETS THE ALWAYS UNTOUCHABLE UNDECLAIMED VOTERS IN THE GRANITE STATE TO CHOOSE A SIDE AND VOTE WHATEVER PRIMARY VOTE, REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRATIC, YOU WANT TO DRAFT FOUR MONTHS BEFORE ELECTION DAY. BILL SPONSORS SAY THE INTENT IS TO PREVENT WHAT THEY SEE AS ​​UNFAIR INTERFERENCE IN PRIMARY. REP. MICHAEL MOFFETT IN FACT SAYS THAT HE WAS INSPIRED TO IMPLEMENT THIS ACT BECAUSE HE CLAIMS THAT HE IS AN INTENDED INTERFERENCE BY DEMOCRATS AND LEFT-LIFT UNDECLAIMED VOTERS IN PAST AND CURRENT ELECTIONS. HE ACCUSES THEM OF IMPRESSING THE PRIMARY FOR THE GOVERNOR ON THE REPUBLIC SIDE IN 1996 AND THROWING THE RACE TO CONSERVATIVE OVIDE LAMONTAGNE, WHO DEFEATS THEN CONGRESSMAN BILL ZELIFF IN A FALL. HIS THEORY IS THAT THE DEMOCRATS DID SO BECAUSE LAMONTAGNE WAS AN EASIER CANDIDATE FOR JEANNE SHAHEEN TO DEFEAT. >> WHAT IS HAPPENING SEEMS TO EXPLAIN AN EFFORT OF SOME PEOPLE TO DECLARE THEMSELVES INDEPENDENT OR UNAFFILIATED TO CONTROL THE OTHER PARTY’S PRIMARY. ZELIFF HAD A KNOWLEDGE AND WAS SEEN AS ALMOST UNBEATABLE. DESPITE PASSIONATE CONSERVATIVE SUPPORT, LE MONTAIGNE HAD LIMITED EXPERIENCE. SO THE OTHER PARTY IN THE 1996 PRIMARY SEEMS TO HAVE GO FOR LE MONTAIGNE AGAINST ZELIFF. Adam: We approached OVIDE LAMONTAGNE. HE SAYS WHAT HE REMEMBER THE RACE ARE THE ONLY DEMOCRATS WHO SUPPORTED HIM. THEY ARE OF FRENCH-CANADIAN DESCENT AND MORE THAN A FEW OF THEM COME TO HIM AFTER THE PRIMARY AND SAY THAT THEY COULD LEARN ON ELECTION DAY DON’T PULL A REPUBLIC ELECTION TO VOTE FOR HIM. IN A STATEMENT, HE SAID, “WHILE I RECOGNIZE THAT IT’S ONLY 27 YEARS, THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HEARED SPECULATION THAT INVOCIOUS UNDECLACED VOTERS POSTED THE RESULTS OF THE 1996 REPUBLICAN STATE PRIMARY.” POLITICAL NEWCOMER JOHN E. SUNUNU WAS A HOTLY CONTESTED NOMINATION FOR THE OPEN CONGRESS SEAT IN THE FIRST DISTRICT, DEFEATING THE POPULAR MAYOR OF MANCHESTER, RAY WIECZOREK, AMONG OTHERS. PERHAPS HIS NOMINATION WAS POSTPONED TOO? Suffice it to say, TOO THERE MAY BE REASONS TO SUPPORT HB 101, THE 1996 REPUBLIC STA
