Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Joe Kenney's victory in tonight's Executive Council primary:
"I want to congratulate Joe Kenney on his victory in tonight's Executive Council District 1 primary. Joe ran a strong campaign that focused on the traditional New Hampshire principles of smaller government, fiscal responsibility and limited taxation.
"Joe Kenney will be an independent leader and a tireless advocate for taxpayers in Concord. Like Ray Burton, Joe knows how to work across the aisle to get results for the people of District 1.
"Mike Cryans is a typical tax and spend liberal who is bought and paid for by the union bosses and special interests that are propping up his campaign. If elected, Cryans will be another rubber stamp on the Executive Council for more spending and more wasteful projects that are threatening New Hampshire's fiscal stability.
"In March, the choice for District 1 voters is clear, and I am confident that they will send Joe Kenney's fiscally responsible and principled voice to Concord."
