Paul came to New Hampshire from New York City working for iHeartRadio and hosting the White House Brief with Paul Westcott. The show can be listened to 24/7 on the iHeartRadio app and online. His career began in television news working as an assignment editor and producer for NBC News/MSNBC and Fox News Channel.
Paul's passion for radio began in college at Fordham University working for WFUV-FM an NPR affiliate where he honed his on-air skills as an anchor and beat reporter. At Fordham Paul earned a BA & MA in political science.
He currently lives in Manchester with his Wife Sarah.
1. President: Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney - Obvious number one. This race drives turnout and can have a substantial impact on straight R or D ticket voters. And in such a tight race it's all about who shows up.
2. NH Governor: Ovide Lamontagne vs. Maggie Hassan - Biggest race in the state elections. It's an open seat so the country is watching. And if you live in the NH/MA media market during commercial breaks you've been watching even though sometimes you don't want to.
3. US House New Hampshire District 2: Charlie Bass vs. Annie Kuster - This is another nationally watched race with Annie Kuster constantly up in the polls. While Charlie has stepped up his campaign in 2012 it may not be enough to sway the moderate to Democrat leaning district.
4. Executive Council District 4: Robert Burns vs. Christopher Pappas - Talk about pulling on the ideological heart strings. Both candidates have fought hard (sometimes dirty) to get where they are, it's now time to make a choice. Both candidates are young guns within their respective parties and want to bring in a new generation of ideological (not a bad thing) leadership to the EC in New Hampshire.
5. Ballot Question 1: which would ban any new tax on "income earned by any natural person." If approved by two-thirds majority of the voters, it would constitutionally codify in the state constitution one portion of "The Pledge," the New Hampshire politically ritualized mantra to oppose any broad-based sales or income tax.
