Concord -- Ray Buckley, Chair of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, issued the following statement in response to Republican Party Chair John H. Sununu's statement on February's revenue numbers:
"John H. Sununu is the only Governor in New Hampshire history to leave the state budget in deficit two years in a row. In just one budget, he even increased spending 27 percent. For him to talk about fiscal responsibility is laughable.
"John Lynch has consistently taken action to help families during this recession, and to keep the state's books balanced. Unlike Sununu, he has a proven record of balancing budgets, and that is what he will continue to do."
