Republican Charles F. “Charlie” Bass announced he will run for Congress again in 2010.

He served six terms representing New Hampshire’s 2nd District. Democrat Paul Hodes defeated him in 2006.

In his announcement, Bass wrote, "People are right to be angry, because Washington's spending is out of control, while they do nothing to support the creation of real jobs."

He called for a focus on national security, reduction of government spending and of the national debt, “reducing the burden of unfunded federal mandates, and  promoting common-sense environmental policies.”
