New Hampshire Republicans are buzzing about tonightís local premiere of ďThe Genesis Code,Ē a film that examines the intersection between faith and science and premiered in Iowa on Wednesday night.
The Granite Stateís 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 yearís 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, Nevadaís Sharron Angle, made headlines when she attended the movieís 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.
Tonightís screening ó scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the Cinemagic in Hooksett, N.H. ó is already overbooked.
