Concord - NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement on the outcome of the District 16 state Senate special election.
"Senate District 16 has been held by a Republican for as long as anyone can remember. This election does nothing to change the makeup of the Senate. The Democratic majority will continue to work hard to rebuild the economy, create good jobs, and fight for working families here in the Granite State.
"While Democrats are focused on moving New Hampshire forward, Republicans are pursuing a reckless, radical right wing agenda and are not offering any solutions to the significant challenges facing our state or country.
"And I'm confident that in November Democrats will be successful in getting our message out and will hold onto our majority.
