Former State Sens. Mary Louise Hancock and Mark Hounsell Endorse Hassan
MANCHESTER, NH – Democratic candidate for Governor Maggie Hassan today announced that former State Senators Mary Louise Hancock and former Republican Mark Hounsell are backing her campaign.
The campaign also announced the endorsements of former State Representative and former Nashua Democratic Chair Harvey Keye, Nashua Alderman Diane Sheehan, Coos County Democrats Chair David Mitchell of Whitefield, pro-choice advocate Christina D’Allesandro of Salem, and Bill Duncan of Defending New Hampshire Public Education from New Castle.
“It is an honor to have the support of these great New Hampshire leaders,” said Hassan. “I’m looking forward to working with them to build on our already strong campaign. With their help, we can move New Hampshire forward—by creating the best workforce, the best schools and making our state the national leader in innovation.”
"New Hampshire needs Maggie Hassan's intelligence, experience, foresight, and responsible leadership,” said former State Senator Mary Louise Hancock. “I’m excited to be a part of her campaign.”
"There is no question in my mind regarding Maggie's qualification to be our next Governor,” said former Republican State Senator Mark Hounsell of Conway. “Her vast experience, compassion and overall ability are superior. I look forward to her administration and the leadership it will display. I urge all the citizens of New Hampshire to vote Maggie Hassan for Governor."
