NHDP Chair Ray Buckley's Statement on the U.S Senate Race

Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on Congressman Paul Hodes's loss this evening.

"Congressman Hodes ran a tough race; he faced an uphill battle from the first day but never stopped fighting for the working middle class families of New Hampshire no matter what the odds.

"I know that he would have been just as fiercely an independent voice in the United States Senate as he was in the House.  His loss tonight is a loss for all of New Hampshire."
