Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement in response to the New Hampshire Democrat Party's latest attempt to distract from Senator Shaheen's failed record on a press conference call this afternoon:
"Democrats are desperate to distract from Senator Jeanne Shaheen's deciding vote for ObamaCare, her disgraceful vote to slash benefits for our military retirees and her decades of failed leadership. Shaheen is a typical Washington politician who has ignored the will of her constituents, blindly taken orders from her party leaders and voted with President Obama over 95% of the time.
"Shaheen has also demonstrated that she is a shameless hypocrite who rails against Wall Street, but has accepted over a million dollars in Wall Street contributions. Shaheen was even willing to neglect her official obligations by intentionally missing an important, mandatory vote so that she could raise campaign cash at a Wall Street fundraiser with lobbyists and special interests.
"Granite Staters are smart enough to see through Senator Shaheen's dishonesty and realize that she is a deceitful, double talking Washington politician who needs to be replaced in 2014."
