NHDP Chair Ray Buckley's Statement on Gov. Lynch's Historic Victory

Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on Governor John Lynch's victory tonight to a historic fourth term.

"As a direct result of Governor Lynch's steady and responsible leadership, New Hampshire citizens elected him to a historic fourth term.  In these tough times, I can think of no person more capable of leading our state forward than Governor Lynch, and I congratulate him on his decisive victory.

"If 35 years ago anyone had told me New Hampshire Democrats would have won seven of eight gubernatorial elections in a row or that the first Governor elected to a fourth term in New Hampshire history would be a Democrat, I would have never believed it.  Governor Lynch has been a fantastic leader for our state, and I am looking forward to having him lead us forward for two more years."
