NHDP - STATEMENT ON RUBENS CANDIDACY

Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Communications Director Harrell Kirstein released the following statement after former State Senator Jim Rubens announced that he is running for the U.S. Senate in 2014: 
 
"Jim Rubens is out of touch with New Hampshire; he boasts a 'pampered life,' brags about 'private charter flights,' 'private bungalows,' and his 'million dollar house' and 'investment portfolio.' Rubens simply doesn't get it and doesn't understand the challenges facing New Hampshire’s working families.  He even supports a plan to create a 28% national sales tax which would devastate New Hampshire's middle-class.  Jim Rubens is wrong for New Hampshire."
