Owner of NH political blog nhjournal.com resigns to run pro-Scott Brown group

The site has faced skepticism over its independence within New Hampshire circles since its launch, as Hynes owns it along with a handful of other New Hampshire GOP strategists, including former NHGOP Executive Director Paul Young and two strategists previously engaged with the presidential campaigns of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R). DiStaso did not respond to a request for comment from The Hill made prior to his report that Hynes was stepping down.
