Fiorina’s secret weapon: Ovide Lamontagne leads NH team

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.”

    I’d call this peculiar “strategery.”  Hiring a repeat loser to lead an effort to win makes no sense. In any event, it doesn’t matter. Fiorina’s moment to shine has come and gone.

    Watch and listen closely as Carly Fiorina exposes herself as a John McCain and Hillary Clinton supporter: This video explains her well earned nose dive.

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      After seeing this video, Mrs. Fiorina deserves Ovide Lamontagne
      for her swan song. She and McCain should stop taking up space and creating mischief in the GOP. They are both Democrats in RINO clothing. When Carly Fiorina speaks at a debate, she usually says “I’m a conservative.” Anyone who followed her over the years knows she’s not a conservative. But then her ol’ pal, John McCain also calls himself a conservative every 6 years at campaign time.

      Never heard of Ovide Lamontagne before. Maybe this “make him or break him.” I say that in jest.

      • Not A McCainiac says:

        It sounds as though Fiorina’s still taking advice from RINO John McCain. I recall reading that she was one of his high dollar bundlers. One thing to remember is that she’s no conservative, regardless of how she tried to portray herself in the 2016 presidential arena.

        Fiorina is a non entity in this race. She had a momentary uptick due to her ability to speak well. In that way, she’s the diabolical clone of Marco Rubio, another establishment open borders underling of John McCain and Jeb Bush, (who actually called illegal entry into the United States “an act of love.”) Rubio was integral to the formation of the amnesty disaster known as the Gang of 8, put together by McCain, Jeff the Flake, Chuck Schumer and a contingent of senate RINOs and Leftist Democrats.
