NHGOP STATEMENT ON SHAHEEN FINALLY ADMITTING THAT SHE SKIPPED SENATE FILIBUSTER SUMMIT FOR CAMPAIGN FUNDRAISER

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Senator Jeanne Shaheen finally admitting that she skipped a historic Senate filibuster summit to attend a campaign fundraiser.The Union Leader broke the news about the fundraiser this afternoon:

 

"It is disgraceful that it took Senator Jeanne Shaheen nearly a week to admit that she skipped a historic Senate summit to raise money with lobbyists and liberal special interests. The Senator clearly wanted to hide this news from her constituents and she would not have provided an explanation unless we demanded that she be honest about her absence.   

 

"This incident reminds voters that Jeanne Shaheen is an ineffective and unaccomplished Senator who would rather raise campaign dollars than serve New Hampshire. Shaheen has gone to Washington, lost touch with New Hampshire values and proven that she does not deserve to be reelected in 2014."
