Three time loser tapped to help Carly Fiorina win
If you haven’t heard of Ovide Lamontagne, you aren’t alone. He’s something of a GOP mover and shaker in New Hampshire, where he’s run for and lost numerous offices. In 1996, he ran for governor and lost to Democrat Jeanne Shaheen. With political zeal still coursing through his veins in 2010, he ran for the U.S. Senate, this time losing the nomination to Kelly Ayotte. In 2012 he ran for governor again and lost to another Democrat — Maggie Hassan.
Now he’s been signed on as Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s New Hampshire state chairman, according to the Union Leader newspaper.
“With Ovide leading our efforts in New Hampshire as State Chairman, we will continue to build momentum around the state,” Fiorina said in a statement.
Time is short. The New Hampshire Primary takes place Feb. 9.
Fiorina, the former CEO of HP, is currently running in 8th place in New Hampshire polls, even trailing Jeb Bush.
It looks like Ovide Lamontagne has got his work cut out for him. But, as the old adage goes, “the fourth time might be the charm.”
