After some speculation last week, former Republican Liberty Caucus of NH Chairman Andrew Hemingway has officially made his bid for NH GOP chair, via a Facebook page, aptly titled "Andrew Hemingway for NHGOP Chair."
He now joins Jennifer Horn on the short list of candidates announcing their intention to lead the NH Republican party in 2013.
Hemingway is a former chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of NH, a state chapter of the national Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC), launched in December 2004 to "promote the ideals of limited government, individual liberty, personal responsibility, free enterprise and adherence to the N.H. and U.S. Constitutions."
He most recently served as New Hampshire director of Newt Gingrich's 2012 presidential campaign.
According to a bio posted in 2010 on the Republican Liberty Caucus site, Hemingway was born and raised in Plymouth, and is an entrepreneur, currently listed as founder/CEO at Digital-Acumen, an online social media analytics company with a political bent.
