DURHAM, NH – In 2008 Jim Forsythe briefly ran for US Congress as a Ron Paul Republican before deciding it was not for him and returned to the aerospace industry. His aversion to running for elected office did not last long. In 2010 he ran for a seat in the New Hampshire State Senate and won making him one of several Ron Paul Republicans in the New Hampshire legislature. Due to personal reasons Forsythe has said that he will not seek reelection to his senate seat in 2012.
Forsythe, now Paul's New Hampshire Campaign Chairman, joined the Texas Republican on stage here for his town hall. He took time out for an on camera interview that touched on topics ranging from Paul's chances in New Hampshire to how and why the Granite State is a libertarian hotbed.
