Cornerstone General Election Endorsements

Below are all those candidate who we have endorsed for the general election for the NH State House, Senate, and Executive Council races. The candidates we name below are people who, either through their previous voting record, or through their answers to our survey, have demonstrated themselves to be committed to the causes of life, liberty, and the family. They are men and women in whom we believe you can place your confidence.

Additionally, when endorsing, Cornerstone takes into account how a candidate conducts himself in public, both in person and online. If a candidate checks all the boxes as far as political opinions go, but conducts himself poorly on social media, for example, we are unlikely to endorse him.

Please take the time in the coming month not only to familiarize yourselves with your local candidates, but to aid your fellow voters in becoming more informed on where your candidates stand on important issues.

Finally, please remember to pray for your candidates and their families. Running for public office is not an easy task, and, especially now, when elections have become a spiritual battleground, they need our prayers.
