Hon. Paul Mirski
Former member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives
You will find in Karen, an honest and indefatigable defender of our Constitution and of all of the individual rights that it guarantees. You will find in Karen, a forthright champion of our exceptional Republican principles, principles that are now under attack to a greater degree than we have seen in many decades. We need a voice in NH politics, and especially in the corner office of our State House, that will elevate Republican principles to the degree that we have a right to expect. We need a Republican voice that will call upon all Republicans to reinvigorate the reasons why each of us chose to declare ourselves Republican in the first place. Please support Karen Testerman in her bid to become NH’s next Republican governor.
Hon. Andrew Manuse
Former member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives
I personally and enthusiastically endorse Karen Testerman for governor of New Hampshire. She is a voice of reason and a person who loves God Almighty and respects the Constitution. I know that she will put the people of New Hampshire first, ALWAYS! She is the definition of what a true leader should be. With his edicts, Gov. Chris Sununu put his special interests before the people of New Hampshire and cared not even a little about the business owners or their employees who have been suffering, the rule of law and the constitution, the people suffering with medical or developmental issues, our children who desperately need social interaction and education of their parents’ choice, or religious liberties, which were the reason our country was founded in the first place. Karen’s candidacy gives me hope that we will have an end to Gov. Sununu’s reign of terror. I am confident she will put the people this governor has hurt first before addressing any other issue, and that is what we need right now.

Concerning the governor’s executive orders
The House Republican Alliance staunchly opposed the bill (2002 HB 1461) that eventually became RSA 4:45, granting the governor emergency powers. I was a member of the HRA at that time and voted against the bill. This is one of the reasons I’m voting for you, Karen Testerman, in the primary against Gov. Sununu.
Roger Sherman, from Connecticut, signed the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the US Constitution. He proposed the “Great Compromise” idea of a 2-part legislature where one body had representation based on population (the House). He wrote to the people of Connecticut advocating for the ratification of the US Constitution:
“Of a very different nature, tho’ only one degree better than the other reasoning, is all that sublimity of nonsense and alarm, that has been thundered against it in every shape of metaphoric terror, on the subject of a bill of rights, the liberty of the press, rights of conscience, rights of taxation and election, trials in the vicinity, freedom of speech, trial by jury, and a standing army. These last are undoubtedly important points, much too important to depend on mere paper protection. For, guard such privileges by the strongest expressions, still if you leave the legislative and executive power in the hands of those who are or may be disposed to deprive you of them—you are but slaves. Make an absolute monarch—give him the supreme authority, and guard as much as you will by bills of rights, your liberty of the press, and trial by jury;—he will find means either to take them from you, or to render them useless.” – Roger Sherman, The Countryman II – November 22, 1787
This year alone, Governor Sununu has now signed his name to 16 Executive Orders and 65 Emergency Orders.
Each Order has this just above his signature:
“Given under my hand and seal at the Executive Chambers in Concord, this [xx]th day of [xxxx], in the year of Our Lord, two thousand and twenty, and the independence of the United States of America, two hundred and forty-four.”
He signs his name to orders taking away our God-given rights; and is oblivious to the irony of the referenced “independence”. Governor Sununu is a despot. We are slaves. No longer do we live in a Republic.
These authoritarian powers stem from RSA 4:45. It was the HRA that vehemently opposed the bill leading to this law (HB 1461, 2002). Warned by the words of Roger Sherman and others, we foresaw the dangers to our liberties imposed by this bill. Alas, the Legislature did not heed our plea.

Chalk me up as supporting Karen Testerman for Governor. Seems like I have known her forever. Lots of people run for office. I meet them every election cycle. Some are for real; many just show up out of nowhere and ask for your support.
Karen Testerman always put in the hard work.
Every time something important to taxpayers in our State came up that I can remember – Karen was on the right side of it.
Example: Karen drafted a State Supreme Court Case to prevent school superintendents from hiding their school’s SPEDIS numbers which were designed to attach an anonymous number to each special education student. This number would let taxpayers see how many of these students were in each school and how long they were there. Special education is where some inventive superintendents hid money in school budgets, millions.
Only Karen would take on a task like this because our courts favor government schools in such cases. The court, in spite of the numbers created to be public, said the numbers were not public. Typical.
Karen Testerman was right. She stood her ground for taxpayers.
If I were to describe Karen another way, simply read our State Constitution:
[Art.] 38. [Social Virtues Inculcated.] A frequent recurrence to the fundamental principles of the constitution, and a constant adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, industry, frugality, and all the social virtues, are indispensably necessary to preserve the blessings of liberty and good government; the people ought, therefore, to have a particular regard to all those principles in the choice of their officers and representatives, and they have a right to require of their lawgivers and magistrates, an exact and constant observance of them, in the formation and execution of the laws necessary for the good administration of government.
June 2, 1784
That is Karen Testerman to a tee. Not many politicians have the will to follow our State’s handbook.
Karen Testerman does.

For Governor: Karen Testerman – Karen will abide by the Constitution and protect your freedom and use the facts, evidence, and data to release NH from the endless Gov. Sununu shutdowns, freeing businesses, families, and children from ongoing, senseless harm and losses. With a background in microbiology, she will work to protect the vulnerable, while setting the rest of NH free. She will protect all of your rights and will work to contain and reduce taxes and government.
Tejasinha Sivalingam - Ashland, NH
We are in the political fight of our lives. Everything that we know to be New Hampshire is politically under attack, and our leaders have all but abandoned our Constitution and our people.
We need leadership, not politicians, we need leaders; and Karen Testerman is the leader we need for Governor.
Testerman has publicly pledged to our State her life, her wealth, and her sacred honor; and I believe her to be completely authentic and sincere.
Karen Testerman has my endorsement, and my vote, for Governor.
Richard Buba - Atkinson, NH
I am endorsing Karen Testerman for Governor as her core value is a better match for all of the Citizens of the Great State of New Hampshire. The current occupant of the Governor’s Chair in Concord has proven to be a disaster time and time again. His actions seem to be in lockstep with the DNC, where decisions are based on his animus for President Trump, hurting the Citizens of the Great State of New Hampshire, rather than based on science and rational thinking.
Karen’s Science background and Conservative values are what we need in Concord to lead us out of the morass that has unnecessarily been created. Join me in supporting Karen on Tuesday, September 8th, and then in November, where the course of our State and the Nation are at stake.
May God Bless The United States of America, Karen & The Citizens of The Great State of New Hampshire.

I have had the pleasure to know Karen Testerman for about twenty years. I have known and met her fine family. She is a devoted wife, mother, and friend. Karen and I have worked on a variety of organizations, projects, committees, and peaceful meaningful protests. We have shared the speaker’s platform at dozens of events. To say that Karen is committed to her faith in Christ, family, the US, and NH Constitutions, etc. would be an understatement. She is not an elitist. Her dedication is to the grassroots constituency, she has repeatedly proved that. She is no stranger to NH politics at all levels. She is experienced in fighting for what is right. She knows how government works and how the government is supposed to work, she is a problem solver, not a problem maker. I am going on the public record as one who will support the vote for Karen and encourage you to vote for her also. Karen is a true Republican and supports the party’s platform. Karen Testerman is certainly qualified and ready to be the 83rd governor of New Hampshire at such a time as this.
Dr. James C. Dobson. Ph.D.
It is my pleasure to be among the many conservatives who are supporting Karen Testerman’s candidacy for Governor of New Hampshire.
Karen is a strong leader who will support legislation which bolsters the institution of the family. She is unwaveringly pro-life and can be counted on to be a voice for the unborn. Karen has been a leading public policy advocate for over 20 years in New Hampshire and in 2008 was the recipient of the Family Research Council’s “Family, Faith, and Freedom Award.”
For years, I have joined millions of people across America in praying that God would raise up leaders to restore this great nation. I am excited that Karen answered that call and has stepped up to offer her services to the people of New Hampshire.
As a private individual, I am honored to endorse Karen Testerman for Governor of New Hampshire and pray that her election will be the start of a new generation of leaders who will return this nation to the Constitutional principles upon which it was founded.

Pastor David Berman, Senior Pastor at Christian Life Fellowship
Hi, my name is pastor David Berman. I’m the senior pastor of Christian life fellowship.
My fellow pastors. I have a message for you, and I hope that you will consider it. I am endorsing for governor Karen Testerman.
I have known Karen Testerman. for 20 years. She is a woman of faith. She’s a very intelligent woman and she will keep true to the constitution of the United States of America and our constitution here in New Hampshire.
Unfortunately, Governor Sununu, who I pray for. Is not listening to the scriptures concerning one of the most important issues. And that is the issue of abortion.
He supports many things that are not only unbiblical but are not good politically either.
We need a candidate that will stand for the Constitution of the United States of America and New Hampshire that someone is Karen Testerman.
Please join me in supporting her.
She is a woman I know personally and trust.
Thank you for your consideration. And God bless you.
