Yesterday at the annual Real Options pregnancy center banquet I spoke to General Don Bolduc who is running for the US Senate in NH

General Don Boldic candidate for US Senate in NH speaks with DaTechGuy in Hollis NH 10/22/21

His campaign’s website is here:

Update: To make it clear he is a candidate for US senate in NH not the NH senate

Update 2: Linked by Granite Grok, thanks Mike

In election 2018 New Hampshire did what it tend to do every two years on the local level flip control. The Democrats took the majority in the state senate 14-10 reversing the previous margin while in the house the 212 to 167 GOP edge became a 233 – 167 Democrat majority. However Governor Chris Sununu managed to keep his seat as governor.

The New Hampshire being just as left as other leftist or more with refugees from Massachusetts regularly pouring in was anxious to push a radical agenda in the state and the governor has been a veto machine with 51 to his credit.

His three latest are of particularly interest, because with Dayton and El Paso in the news NH Democrats, as Granite Grok reported decided that 39 days after passing three anti-gun bills but not sending them to the governor it was time to strike!

The motivations for sending the legislation to Sununu’s desk at this exact moment is evident to anyone with an IQ above room temperature, on its face alone, not even accounting for the fact that they trampled all over their own minimum wage presser and messaging by doing so, which only adds to the transparency of the exercise.

The substance of these bills has been covered many times already, so I won’t go into it again, other than to remind you that the Governor only has three more days now to decide to Veto, Sign, or allow to become law.

It was a smart plan, you have the national media pushing this stuff bigtime, a moderate gop governor in the state house and hints nationally that the president might even consider some new gun laws. I’m sure there were many who thought that Sununu would allow these bills to be come law with our without his signature…right up until the moment he didn’t:

Late Thursday afternoon, without pomp and circumstance, Governor Sununu held true to his campaign promises and killed the latest and last 3 gun control bills of the year, despite mounting pressure from the press and the Democrats.

The Governor has frequently and repeatedly announced his support for leaving the gun laws of our state as they are, saying “Look, I think the laws we have on firearms in the state are pretty darn good and I’m not looking for any additional restrictions at this time,” to reporters in February.

Turns out he meant it.

As the group progun NH put it:

The governor is right, we don’t need new laws just so politicians can smile and pretend they did something when in fact they did nothing good at all. ProGun NH thanks the governor for his steadfast support of law abiding NH citizens and keeping New Hampshire one of the safest states in the USA.

With the president due in the state in a few days the importance of the governor’s decision can’t be overstated.

Here are the shots from Friday that I didn’t get a chance to put up yesterday:

My youngest and myself are both Pinball fanatics so on the occasion of his rising grades we took a trip up to Funspot with his friend Kevin and DaHospitalityGuy. A young lady who was to also come with us begged off due to sickness.

The drive itself in a couple of hours as it is located in central NH’s Lake’s Region. The entire area is rather beautiful although each time I visit it seem to be developed just a little bit more.

There are a series of photos that will show up in the Gallery below but there was one sight that caught me totally by surprise when we pulled up, so much so that everyone had to wait for me while I waited for the sign to refresh to the same spot:

In NH conservatives aren't the silent type

Being from Massachusetts I was a little surprised but much less so after I had the great pleasure of meeting the founder:

When you have an arcade that has been in business since 1952 and at it’s present location since 1964 customers are unlikely to make choices based on your political leanings, particularly when you provide a good product at a great price. Particularly when you offer free tables and space for Birthday parties.

We didn’t confine our interviews to management…

UPDATE: His name is Dylan not Ian my bad there.

The food is pretty good, but if you want something more substantial there is no shortage of restaurants nearby, but they don’t give you the free tokens that you earn for buying a Pizza.

There are more interviews, and a photo gallery below the jump
