Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Walt Havenstein's victory in tonight's NH1 News Debate:


"Tonight, Maggie Hassan demonstrated why she does not deserve a second term. Because of her reckless, budget-busting spending habits, New Hampshire is in the red and her only choice forward will be an income tax. She has repeatedly lied to her constituents about her failure to grow the economy in our state, and has demonstrated no leadership on the important issues facing New Hampshire families like the upcoming utility rate hikes, who are already hurting because of the gas tax she signed into law earlier this year. Walt Havenstein will bring real solutions to Concord and create good paying jobs for New Hampshire's middle class, and that's why voters will choose him on Election Day."
