DSCC STATEMENT ON BILL BINNIE'S ENTRY INTO THE NH SENATE RACE

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Communications Director Eric Schultz released the following statement in response to Bill Binnie’s entry into the New Hampshire Senate race today:

 “With multi-millionaire Bill Binnie’s entry into the New Hampshire Senate race today, Kelly Ayotte’s path to the Republican nomination got no easier.  She now faces a well-funded opponent willing to sink personal money into a Senate run.  As several more prominent Republicans appear close to announcing their intentions, Ayotte continues moving further to the right and out of the New Hampshire mainstream to cover her political bases. While it is not clear which Republican will emerge from the primary, it is clear that New Hampshire voters will be faced with two stark choices in 2010, going back to the failed policies of the past or moving the state forward with Paul Hodes as their independent voice in the U.S. Senate.”
