NHDP Statement on former State Rep. George Lambert Launching GOP Campaign for Governor

Concord – New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Harrell Kirstein released the following statement on former State Representative George Lambert exploring a campaign for Governor of New Hampshire.

“An extreme right-wing Tea Party Republican like Representative George Lambert makes a perfect standard bearer for the top of NHGOP’s ticket next fall.  In the State House, Lambert tried to make it harder to arrest perpetrators of domestic violence, limit judges ability to take guns away from people arrested for dangerous crimes, reduce child support payments for deadbeat parents, and he voted for the reckless O’Brien-Bradley budget that killed hundreds of New Hampshire jobs while making the largest cut to public higher education in American history.

“Lambert would fit better in a circus tent than he would in New Hampshire’s corner office, with his clownish antics claiming the authority to nullify federal laws and his shameful campaign to classify airport security officials as sex offenders, but he fits perfectly in today's NHGOP.”
