CONCORD - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Raymond Buckley issued the following statement on Ovide Lamontagne and Kevin Smith filing for Governor:
"Ovide Lamontagne and Kevin Smith have the wrong priorities for New Hampshire's middle-class families and the economy. They are siding with the extreme agenda of the Republican legislature instead of Gov. Lynch and his effective leadership.
"Ovide Lamontagne and Kevin Smith's plans to take over Medicare for seniors; their extreme positions on limiting birth control and abortion; and their efforts to eliminate the state's responsibility for public education, while sending tax dollars to wealthy private schools, would move New Hampshire in the wrong direction."
