New Hampshire Republicans Flocking to Conservative Film Premiere

New Hampshire Republicans are buzzing about tonights local premiere of The Genesis Code, a film that examines the intersection between faith and science and premiered in Iowa on Wednesday night.

The Granite States free screening will be hosted by the leading local conservative group, Cornerstone Action, and includes a speaking program topped by tea party favorite Ovide Lamontagne, who narrowly lost last years GOP Senate primary to Sen. Kelly Ayotte.

Lamontagne is considered a top New Hampshire recruit for prospective presidential candidates. Another unsuccessful Senate candidate and tea party favorite, Nevadas Sharron Angle, made headlines when she attended the movies Iowa premiere. Angle wouldn't rule out a presidential bid.

A local Republican strategist told Roll Call that creationism is expected to be a top issue for social conservatives as they interview GOP presidential candidates in the coming months. The issue came up twice in New Hampshire presidential debates last cycle.

Tonights screening scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the Cinemagic in Hooksett, N.H. is already overbooked.
