NHDP Chairman Raymond Buckley's Statement on the Election of Gene Chandler as House Minority Leader

CONCORD  - Raymond Buckley, Chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, released the following statement following the election of Gene Chandler as House minority leader:
 
"It is clear that House Republicans either didn't listen or simply chose to ignore the will of the voters by electing Gene Chandler as the House Minority leader tonight. Chandler, a devoted and loyal ally of the Tea Party and Bill O'Brien, represents more of the same type of failed leadership and extreme policies that voters roundly rejected just over a week ago.
 
"Voters want a return to common-sense problem solving in Concord and to move away from the divisive tactics and extreme agenda of the last two years. With the election of Gene Chandler however, the Republican minority has shown that they are still unwilling to waiver from the radical and extreme policies and tactics that lost them their majority, hurt New Hampshire's economy and left our middle class behind."
