NHDP Statement on Tonight's Gubernatorial Debate

Manchester, NH – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement after tonight’s New Hampshire gubernatorial debate:

“Tonight's gubernatorial debate featured failed CEO Walt Havenstein once again pushing his so-called economic 'plan' that would blow a $90 million hole in the state’s budget to give more tax giveaways to big businesses and take New Hampshire back to the Bill O’Brien era of devastating cuts to higher education, public safety and infrastructure. Havenstein also repeatedly dodged questions about signing the Koch Brothers pledge that would take away health care from 50,000 Granite Staters and repeal the bipartisan transportation plan that's fixing New Hampshire’s roads and bridges, including finishing the completion of I-93.”

“Time and time again Havenstein has proven that he puts his own interests first, no matter who gets hurt, which is why Granite Staters will continue to stand with Governor Hassan who is solving problems the New Hampshire way and keeping our state moving in the right direction.”
