Dover, NH – The Weirs Times has joined a long list of New Hampshire newspapers who have recently endorsed Eddie Edwards in the Republican race in New Hampshire's First Congressional District.
In their editorial, the Weirs Times noted that while they were not planning on getting involved in this GOP primary, they could not sit on the sidelines and allow Andy Sanborn to blatantly lie about Eddie's record.
Regarding mailers sent by the Sanborn campaign about Eddie Edwards, the Weirs Times said, "Anti-Second Amendment? Pro-Abortion? Approves Funding for Planned Parenthood and Illegal Immigration? If these things are true, why isn't he running as a Democrat?... So we decided to do some homework. We soon found that the claims made in these mailers were far from the truth."
They concluded by saying, "We have seen some mud-slinging in campaigns over the years, but it is disheartening to see a candidate's positions on important issues being totally twisted as these mailers have done."

Eddie has also recently received endorsements from the Union Leader here and here, the Portsmouth Herald, Foster’s Daily Democrat, and the Conway Daily Sun.
