Today former Congressman Charlie Bass filed to form an exploratory committee for a 2010 run for his old U.S. House seat—New Hampshire’s Second District. Congressman Bass got swept up in the anti-incumbent, anti-Republican wave in 2006. Now the seat is vacant and it appears he is strongly considering a run. He still seems to be being coy about it; saying that the committee is merely a mechanism to deal with the countless unsolicited donations he has received. Hopefully he will bite the bullet and jump in. New Hampshire needs a representative like Bass back in its corner.
As a state and federal elected official Bass gained the reputation for working for real solutions instead being a party sheep dog. We look for to this Real Republican running for the U.S. House and helping turn some blue seats red—especially in New England.
