Jim Bender, who is a Republican candidate for the US Senate seat being vacated by Judd Greg, visited our shop last Thursday. He enjoyed seeing a successful New Hampshire business, and had a lot of questions about what we do and how we are weathering the recession.
He then went on to play golf in the Grafton County Republican Golf Tournament at Owl’s Nest in Campton. I had the opportunity to golf with Jim, and we had a wonderful time. It sounded like he had been too busy with his campaign to play much golf over the last year, and I hope this felt like more of an afternoon off than another campaign event. I tried not to pepper him with questions, and just enjoy a splendid day on the golf course.
I can tell you that Jim is a thoughtful, experienced businessman with a deep desire to contribute to the Nation. I believe he will make a great senator!
