Last week, the executive board and chapter chairs of the New Hampshire Federal of College Republicans announced via resolution its unanimous support for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
The resolution encourages New Hampshire Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte to support the bill as well.
"College Republicans have long looked to Senator Ayotte as someone who could represent the future of the Republican Party,” NHCR Chairman Jake Wagner said in a statement. “It is imperative that she and others in the GOP care about the views and interests of the younger generation; especially at a time when their brothers, sisters, friends, and classmates will be personally impacted by the passage of ENDA."
Wagner is among the New Hampshire Republicans who will be in Washington later this week to advocate for ENDA on Capitol Hill.
New polling conducted by a prominent GOP pollster, Alex Lundry, shows support ENDA nationwide at nearly 70 percent, including 56 percent of Republicans. The polling includes a state-of-the-art modeling technique that projects support for ENDA well over 50 percent in every single state.
Lundry conducted the survey for the Americans for Workplace Opportunity campaign and Project Right Side. HRC is a leading member of the campaign, which is working to pass ENDA through the U.S. Senate this fall.
