Republican activist and free market think-tanker Grant Bosse formally declared his candidacy today in New Hampshireâ??s 00th Congressional District after news that the Obama administration has attributed a majority of the stateâ??s stimulus jobs to that non-existent district.

New Hampshire has only two congressional districts, neither of which are numbered â??00.â??
â??Even a fake district needs real leadership,â?? said Bosse while appearing on WGIRâ??s Charlie Sherman show on Friday morning.
â??The people overseeing the stimulus actually found more fake congressional districts than there are real congressional districts. So if we run in all 440 phantom congressional seats we can take over Congress,â?? Bosse said as the radio host chuckled along.
â??I canâ??t do this alone,â?? Bosse said at his press conference. â??This needs to be a nationwide effort. We need to find candidates as fantastic and unbelievable as the stimulus numbers the Obama administration has given us.â??
Bosse really was a candidate for Congress during the 2008 Republican primary in the real district of NH-02, which covers the Western part of the state. He lost to Jennifer Horn, who sources tell NowHampshire.com will endorsed Bosseâ??s fake candidacy today.
Former New Hampshire Attorney General and Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Kelly Ayotte endosed Bosseâ??s fake candidacy.
â??The massive spending in Washington that Paul Hodes continues to support with the 787 billion dollar â??stimulusâ?? and now the trillion dollar government takeover of health care clearly needs to be reined in by someone who understands the importance of fiscal prudence. There is currently an absurd lack of transparency and accountability for Granite Statersâ?? hard earned tax dollars,â?? said Brooks Kochvar, campaign manager for former Attorney General Kelly Ayotte, in the campaignâ??s endorsement announcement.
â??If Paul Hodes and the professional politicians in Washington would read the legislation before they vote for it, both the federal budget and New Hampshireâ??s familiesâ?? budgets would be better off.â??
Bossee will talk about his fake candidacy on Fox News Channel with Neal Cavuto on Friday afternoon.
Bosseâ??s fake candidacy to win a fake congressional district is a protest of sorts. This week several news reports pointed out that President Barack Obamaâ??s Recovery.gov, the site developed by the White House to provide â??transparentâ?? information about the stimulus, is riddled with errors, including 700 congressional districts that donâ??t actually exist.
Many conservatives are furious that the federal government has apparently lost track of where a significant portion of the $787 billion stimulus money has gone.
