CALLAGHAN BACKS MOWERS. Mayor-elect Paul Callaghan of Rochester has endorsed fellow Republican Matt Mowers for the 1st Congressional District U.S. House seat.
Mowers is in a six-person GOP primary campaign for the right to take on Democratic U.S. Rep. Chris Pappas in the 2022 general election.
“Matt Mowers represents a new generation of conservative leadership that will fight for lower taxes, stand with our local law enforcement community and push back against the policies have led to the soaring costs of groceries and gas,” said Callaghan, a former longtime law enforcement officer.
“I am grateful for Mayor-Elect Callaghan’s support because I believe his decisive victory Nov. 2 demonstrates the frustration and anger Granite Staters have as the radical left pushes their extreme ‘defund-the-police’ agenda that puts us all in danger.
“I will count on Mayor-elect Callaghan to be a partner to me in Congress as we find more solutions to support our brave law enforcement officers and keep our New Hampshire communities safe.”
