Maggie Hassan Announces Veteran Democratic Activist Lenore Patton as Grassroots Co-Chair

MANCHESTER, NH – Maggie Hassan for Governor today announced longtime Democratic activist and former Rockingham County Democratic Chair Lenore Patton as one of the campaign’s Grassroots Co-Chairs.  Patton joins State Representative Jennifer Daler of Temple, Pat Morris of Manchester and Chaz Proulx of Raymond as Hassan Grassroots Co-Chairs.

“Lenore has been a powerhouse organizer in Rockingham County for years and I’m thrilled to have her on board our campaign,” said Hassan.  “Our campaign continues to build strong grassroots support every day and every week.  This is what it takes to win in New Hampshire.”

“Maggie is the exactly the kind of leader we need in the Governor’s office,” said Patton. “She is running an energetic grassroots campaign to move New Hampshire forward and give every middle class family the opportunity to succeed. I’m proud to join her campaign as a Grassroots Co-Chair and look forward to helping her win in September and November.”

Hassan’s campaign has continued building momentum over the past months, breaking a fundraising record for a first time gubernatorial candidate with nearly $700,000 raised.  She recently earned the support of the Teamsters Local 633 and Communications Workers of America Local 1400 – her sixth and seventh labor endorsements. Hassan also has the support of EMILY’s List and the Women’s Campaign Fund.
