2014-08-23 20:50:40 - Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin will hold a news conference today, Friday, August 22nd to announce he has placed an order with WMUR-TV to run advertising supporting Market Basket employees. He will go on cable as well on Monday. “I think we may be making a small bit of political history,” Andy says. “We could not find any example where a candidate had come to the support of workers with TV ads during the course of a U. S. Senate campaign. Because I am concerned by the fate of thousands of employee careers and hundreds of thousands of satisfied shoppers who have temporarily lost their jobs and their shopping destination I am running TV ads supporting the MB associates. They need to know we stand with them. I have been attacked by Foster’s Daily Dingbat for doing so but that just shows you how out of touch and corrupt the media are in this state.” [Andy plans another major Market Basket announcement on Saturday, August 23rd.]

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
ANNOUNCEMENT OF MANCHESTER, NH NEWS CONFERENCE
ATTENTION NATIONAL, POLITICAL, NEW HAMPSHIRE DAYBOOK & ASSIGNMENT EDITORS
Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin has placed an order with WMUR-TV to air ads supporting Market Basket employees
Andy says he is making political history by airing ads during a campaign which support local workers
Andy says an attack on him by Foster’s Daily Dingbat for supporting Market Basket associates shows how out of touch New Hampshire media are
(Manchester, NH) (August 22, 2014)
Dear Granite Stater:
Today I placed an order with WMUR-TV to run ads supporting Market Basket employees. Monday I hope to place a cable run.
You can see the ad and a short video (they are separate) at my web site: www.andymartin2014.com. (please see link below)
Ten thousand employees were recently laid off. The other Republican U. S. Senate candidates have turned a deaf ear to the Market Basket crisis. There is no money in it for them.
Republicans need to offer working families support if we ever hope to regain the majority in New Hampshire. Just mouthing the litany of platitudes about “job creators” (who don’t create jobs and only line their own pockets) and other welfare for the wealthy is simply not enough. I know Scott Brown speaks for the hedge fund billionaires; he invited them into New Hampshire to fund his campaign. He is apparently going on a paid speaking engagement in October. He won’t say who is paying or how much. Typical, evasive, Brown.
P.S. I may be an underdog in the primary but I am the only Republican candidate who has the experience and who is prepared to stand up for New Hampshire’s working families. It is not often a Republican candidate has a pro-worker orientation. But there are more workers in this country than there are Scott Brown-supporting billionaires. Please consider giving me your vote. Who is more qualified to fight for your values? Who is more qualified to stand up for New Hampshire’s working families? (Hint: It’s not Jeanne Shaheen or Scott Brown)
