NHDP - Chair Ray Buckley's Statement on the Democratic Victory in Tonight's Special Election

Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement on Democratic candidate Peter Leishman's landslide victory in the Hillsborough District Three special election.


"Peter Leishman's victory tonight makes New Hampshire voters four-for-four in rejecting Speaker O'Brien's reckless job killing agenda.  In a district with more registered Republicans than Democrats, New Hampshire citizens sent a loud and clear message to the Tea Party Republicans in Concord who have spent the last nine months pursuing policies that don't match up with New Hampshire values -  attacking education, killing jobs, and hurting women's health care by cutting funding for breast cancer screenings. 

"Tonight's results should serve as a warning to all Republicans seeking the Corner Office who are campaigning on continuing and enlarging the reckless and irresponsible agenda we have seen in Concord this year."
