Kimball backs Hemingway

Failed former NHGOP Chairman Jack Kimball, who resigned his post  halfway through his tenure only moments before he was going to be ousted by the party’s executive committee, has announced he’s backing Andrew Hemingway for Chair.

Hemingway is involved in an extremely ugly and personal battle with fellow conservative activist Jennifer Horn to serve as the Party’s next Chair.

John DiStaso from the New Hampshire Union Leader was the first to report Kimball’s endorsement.

The endorsement is no surprise. Many of Kimball’s few remaining supporters – including Joe Barton, a man he called his “black opps guy” – have backed Hemingway for weeks.

UPDATE: Joe Barton email’s NH Journal the follow statement:

“I Have not publically endorsed Andrew Hemingway. I have publically raised questions and concerns about Jennifer Horn’s candidacy, but that doesn’t not mean I support Hemingway. Please update your article with that information. I didn’t know who to contact because it was written by a ‘staff’ reporter.”

    Oh no, staff reporter, not a “black opps guy”! That sounds scary, like an assault weapon. It must be a very bad thing; Scaaaary! Boy (Girl?), I better vote for the other person ‘cuz she doesn’t have one of those CIA rogue agents working for her … right? There’s no one opening up purse strings to push her campaign, and prodding hit-piece yellow journalism (or is that “black” journalism?) … right?

    By association, using the transitive property, if a “failed” political exec endorses a candidate, that candidate must be bad … right? Interesting. Wonder how many who lost in elections, or got the boot, are endorsing the Establishment’s pick? Why, that would border on actual investigative journalism by a staff reporter. Hey, here’s an idea staff reporter: find out about that secret meeting between all those black ops guys and gals that didn’t take place to recruit another candidate so there was actually a choice – kinda like school choice in the Grate State of New Hamsters.

    We wait with baited breaths.

      Who but a mentally deficient scumbag would have a “black ops guy” running around the state?

        See above.

        And WHO would endorse that “scumbag” ? JENNIFER HORN! :-o

    What a biased and sad description. NH Journal continues to lack any credibility for actual reporting.

      wait did you say reporting? I thought the journal was a tabloid! hahahahahah

    What kind of lunatic runs around calling himself a “black ops guy”? Oh, right, he’s a Free State Anarchist. Got it now.

      Free State Anarchist. That sounds scary. By insinuation, I better vote for the safe candidate, the one chosen by the Pooh-bahs to do their bidding. Thanks, Steph, the Safety Chair.

      I don’t think anyone that I know of. I certainly wouldn’t call myself that, and having grown up in NH I’m not allowed in the FreeState club :-( And of course there’s the Irony of being a government employee and an anarchist. How does that work??

    I actually haven’t backed Hemingway.

    • C. dog e. doG

      Oops, here you are stuck in the NHJ fiction section again. By the way, are you that scary black ops guy the intrepid staff reporter and Bud Abbott were writing about? Who’s afraid of big bad wolfs: RINO reporters?

        I like to describe myself as a cute cuddly ball of fluff.

    This getting a little old, just because someone criticizes Jennifer than they must be working with Andrew.

    • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.j.barton Joe Barton

      Andy Martin may still be a viable option! ;-)

    Hey DIDNT JENNIFER HORN endorse Jack Kimball for Chair? Yeah she did! In fact he’s the only person that she endorsed that won anything (even though I guess it kind of ended as a loss it still counts)
