NH Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley's Statement On Today's Election of Jennifer Horn as NHGOP Chair

Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement on the election of Jennifer Horn as Chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party.


"I want to congratulate Jennifer Horn on her election as Chair of the New Hampshire Republican Party.  I look forward to working with her on protecting the First in the Nation Primary and engaging in a vigorous and healthy debate over the next two years," said Buckley.


"Picking up the pieces after a landslide election loss is a challenge that I do not envy.  It is a challenge made more difficult with Democrats carrying NH in five out of the last six presidential elections, eight out of the last nine gubernatorial elections, six out of the last eight congressional elections, one out of the last two senate seats, Democratic majorities on the Executive Council and the NH House three out of the last four elections and State Senate Democratic majorities in two out of the last four.  Granite State voters clearly trust Democrats more to represent their values and address their concerns."


NHGOP Chair Jennifer Horn is the tenth Republican Chair since the 1999 election of the team of  Kathy Sullivan and Ray Buckley.
