Republican 1st District hopefuls meet in debate

Posted: Updated:

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Republican congressional hopeful Dan Innis called rival Frank Guinta a career politician who's part of a troubling trend in Washington, while Guinta questioned Innis's party loyalty during a televised debate.

Innis, a Portsmouth businessman, and Guinta, a former congressman and mayor, are among four candidates seeking the Republican nomination in next week's primary for a chance to take on 1st District Democrat Carol Shea-Porter. Along with former Seabrook selectman Brendan Kelly, they participated in a televised debate Tuesday night on WMUR-TV.

Innis, a political newcomer, indirectly criticized Guinta, saying sending the same people to Washington repeatedly and expecting better results isn't working. Guinta said he was proud of his service, and emphasized that unlike Innis, he hasn't voted in Democratic primaries.

Everett Jabour is also on the GOP ballot.
