New Hampshire-First District

Filing Deadline and Virtual Town Hall

Iraq War Veteran, former AUSA, Attorney Terence O’Rourke to hold first Virtual Town Hall in conjunction with the filing of his Congressional run for NH’s First District

Rochester, N.H. - While many candidates for Congress will be using the Secretary of State’s filing deadline this coming week as another opportunity to throw a party or ask supporters to join a rally, O’Rourke, in a demonstration of humility, will not be making a display of his Congressional filing.  O’Rourke’s rallying does not coincide with convenient, yet arbitrary deadlines; as the only combat veteran and formerly-appointed Assistant U.S. Attorney in this race, O’Rourke has and will continue to stand guard to protect this great nation, 24/7.  

Our campaign will continue to be about connecting with voters, engaging in substantive conversations, and answering your questions. Our campaign understands that voters are busy with work and family, and cannot always make it to “official” events and meetings, which is why O’Rourke for Congress will be holding its first of many Virtual Town Halls on Facebook Live this Friday, June 8th, at 7pm EST to answer your questions and discuss issues that are important to you.  You may submit your questions or comments via email at: campaign@orourkeforcongress.com or through the campaign’s Facebook page: facebook.com/TerenceforNHDistrict1/.  Join the conversation and join the struggle to reclaim our nation!
