NH GOP Statement on Connecticut Election Results

Concord , NH – Today, New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Wayne Semprini issued the following statement in reaction to yesterday’s election results in Connecticut:

“Last night is further proof that the radical left wing has taken control of the Democratic Party. We have already seen signs of this in New Hampshire when the state Democrats passed a resolution at their convention to impeach the President. This is the same liberal wing of the party headed by Howard Dean that is attempting to take away New Hampshire’s First in the Nation primary position.

I am a little surprised by the Democratic leadership’s lack of support for Joe Lieberman. Joe voted with his party 90% of the time. Obviously, if you are not with the liberals 100% of the time, you don’t deserve their support. I guess that this is what you can expect from the party of Howard Dean, which further illustrates that the party of bold ideas and openness is still the Republican Party.”
