Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Senator Harry Reid's Senate Majority PAC launching a dishonest attack ad for Senator Jeanne Shaheen. The release of the ad follows reports that Shaheen's campaign has launched message testing telephone polls in a desperate attempt to find an excuse for her deciding vote for ObamaCare:
"Harry Reid is in full blown panic mode because he realizes that New Hampshire voters are ready to remove one of his most loyal and obedient foot soldiers from office in 2014. His dishonest ad for Jeanne Shaheen's flailing reelection campaign is political payback for her decision to cast the deciding vote for ObamaCare and for mindlessly voting with President Obama over 95% of the time.
"This attack ad and Jeanne Shaheen's desperate attempt to find an excuse for her blind support for ObamaCare through her latest round of polling show how nervous she is about 2014. The ad also reminds voters that despite her attacks on Wall Street, Shaheen has hypocritically accepted over $1.6 million from Wall Street donors and missed important Senate votes to attend Wall Street fundraisers.
"Despite concerns from her constituents, Jeanne Shaheen continues to vote in lockstep with her party's disastrous agenda because she is bought and paid for by politicians like Harry Reid who are funding her dishonest campaign. Granite Staters know that Shaheen is nothing but a phony, unaccomplished, pawn for her party leadership who lacks the independent leadership we expect from our elected officials."
