MANCHESTER, NH – Today, after Cornerstone Action released it’s statewide radio ad, “Shockingly Liberal”, the Binnie campaign responded to the Nashua Telegraph that the ad was “factually inaccurate,” citing Binnie’s opposition now to TARP and gay marriage.

Responding to the Binnie campaign’s claim was Cornerstone Executive Director, Kevin Smith:

“Bill Binnie’s own words speak for themself. Either Mr. Binnie is a politically motivated flip-flopper or he is flat out misleading the voters of New Hampshire. It is time for Mr. Binnie to come clean with New Hampshire voters on his “shockingly liberal” positions and why he suddenly seems to be doing the Granite State two-step.”
