Dover, NH - Eddie Edwards, candidate for Congress in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District, has earned a number of key endorsements over the past week:
“Eddie Edwards has had a distinguished career in law enforcement and the military. Over that period, he has used his time as a public servant to help others and has built a well-deserved reputation as one of the most ethical and honest individuals in our state. He not only understands the issues impacting our families and the problems facing our communities, but he actually cares about making a difference.
"With so many career politicians in Washington, Eddie Edwards would be a stark contrast to most of those who run for office. He has the integrity and the life-story, both in the private and public sector, to be an outstanding member of Congress. I couldn’t be prouder to stand with Eddie as he campaigns across Belknap County and the rest of the First Congressional District."

“Eddie Edwards is a Constitutional Conservative, someone who understands that government was established to protect and preserve our rights. He believes that government should serve the people – not the other way around – and has spoken out forcefully that Congressional terms should be limited and Members of Congress should be forced to live by the same laws that they pass. Eddie Edwards will be a citizen-legislator in the proud New Hampshire tradition.”
- Hon. David Scott, Dover [As reported by the Union Leader]
“We have had the opportunity to get to know Eddie Edwards and we've become truly impressed with his honesty and faith. He is right on the issues and has the passion necessary to change Washington. We are thrilled to be supporting a candidate who will take some much needed integrity to Capitol Hill.”
- Jim and Theresa Gallagher, Conway [As reported by the Union Leader]
“You can tell a lot about a candidate by how hard he works. Eddie Edwards is traveling the district, listening to voters, and sharing his conservative vision for the future. I am confident he will have the same drive to serve the people as our next congressman.
“I had an opportunity to work with Eddie Edwards during my time in the State Senate. He was always a problem solver who was honest and straight forward, which is exactly what we need in Washington, D.C. Eddie has my full support in his campaign for Congress.”

“The voters of Belknap County deserve a voice in Congress that reflects their values. They want a representative who believes in limited government, less spending, and lower taxes. They are yearning for a leader who listens to their needs and fights for them in Washington. Fortunately, with Eddie Edwards, they have a candidate who fulfills those criteria and more.
“I am confident that Eddie Edwards is the right person to change Washington and I look forward to working with him to ensure he is the next congressman from New Hampshire's First District.”
- Belknap County Commissioner David DeVoy (R, Sanbornton) [As reported by WMUR]
“Hearing Eddie Edwards tell us about his background and life story was truly inspiring. After coupling that with his positions on the important issues, we quickly became confident that he was the right person to support for Congress. Unlike most candidates and elected officials, Eddie will bring a breath of fresh air to Washington.”
