At WMUR, John DiStaso reports on the launch of our Congressional Campaign.
Former law enforcement professional Eddie Edwards on Wednesday became the first Republican to announce a candidacy for the 1st District U.S. House seat, promising to run a positive campaign and, if elected in 2018, to serve with integrity.
In a statement provided first to WMUR and to be released generally later Wednesday, Edward, 49, of Dover, said, “New Hampshire deserves a leader in Congress who will fight for us. We need a strong conservative who will stand on principle and represent the people, not the Washington special interests.”
Edwards is the former chief of police in South Hampton and for eight years served as chief of the State Liquor Commission’s enforcement and licensing division. For the past several years, the U.S. Navy veteran has headed his own consulting firm, which, he recently said, “helps business owners overcome the challenges of the regulatory burdens they face.” He is also the former director of community relations in former U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta's congressional office.
