          GOP Takes Another Shot At Ousting Shea-Porter In New Hampshire

          If 2006 hadn't been such an anti-Republican year in New Hampshire, it's hard to make the case that someone as liberal as Carol Shea-Porter could have been elected, let alone oust GOP incumbent Jeb Bradley. But that's exactly what happened. And to make sure it wasn't a fluke, she beat him again two years later. This year, a decidedly Republican year, her opponent is former Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta. Guinta rails against big government, taxes and President Obama, and he says Shea-Porter is part of the problem. The congresswoman says the Democrats, with their passage of the stimulus package, saved the country from a deepening economic collapse. Each sees the other as extreme. -Ken Rudin
