Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement on Democratic candidate Jen Daler's stunning victory in the Hillsborough District 14 special election.
"Jen Daler's massive victory tonight is a complete and total rejection of the reckless Republican agenda that Bill O'Brien has been forcing upon Granite Staters. In one of the most Republican districts in the entire state, New Hampshire voters turned out in historic numbers to oppose this new out of control Republican majority. Over 20% of eligible voters came to the polls today, far exceeding the turnout in any previous special election for state Representative in New Hampshire history.
"The results tonight are a loud and clear message; right to work for less, defunding and destroying public education, the irresponsible House Republican budget, and the rest of the Republican job killing agenda of striping away Granite Staters fundamental rights is at odds with New Hampshire values."
