NHDP - NH Republican Lawmakers Organize Campaign Event with Violent Crosshair Logo

Concord, NH - A campaign event for New Hampshire Republican State Representative JR Hoell is advertised on Facebook with a red, white, and blue Democratic donkey in the crosshairs of a gun.  [Link; screenshot] Additional members of the House Republican caucus were listed as attending the event, as was Republican state representative special election candidate Muni Savyon.


"Putting political opponents in the crosshairs of a gun sight is an unseemly and tasteless way to campaign for elected office in the New Hampshire," said Harrell Kirstein, press secretary for the New Hampshire Democratic Party.  "It is appropriate for Speaker Bill O'Brien, Republican Majority Leader DJ Bettencourt, NHGOP Chair Wayne McDonald, and the Republican Congressional delegation to denounce this unbecoming rhetoric immediately."
