NASHUA-Jennifer Horn, candidate for Congress, released the following statement on the results of yesterday's Second Congressional District Republican primary:
"I have met with Charlie Bass today and congratulated him on his win. As I have said many times over the past year, Charlie Bass is a good man and my respect for Charlie is deep and my affection for him genuine."
Horn continued, "I will spend the next seven weeks doing everything in my power to make sure that lifetime lobbyist Ann Kuster does not become the next Congressman from the Second District. After spending her entire career protecting the special interests, she can never be trusted to be a voice for the people of New Hampshire."
"I also want to thank everyone who supported my campaign through your time, money, and prayers. I am forever grateful for your willingness and courage to stand with me throughout this race and the love and friendships gained on the campaign trail will never be forgotten."
