NHDP Statement on last night’s NH-01 Granite State Debate

Manchester, NH – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement after tonight’s NH-01 Granite State Debate:

“In tonight’s Granite State Debate, Tea Party former congressman Frank Guinta once again dodged his extreme ultra-conservative record that includes pushing to cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans and big oil companies at the expense of middle-class families, cut Social Security and privatize Medicare. Frank Guinta showed how out of touch he is with New Hampshire voters by opposing a woman’s right to choose even to save the life of the mother. Guinta also doubled down on his desperate attempts to mislead voters in order to cover-up his do-nothing record in Congress.”

“Frank Guinta can't run from his dismal record and extreme Tea Party views, which is why voters will continue to support Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter’s proven record of standing up for Granite State middle-class families and supporting economic growth in New Hampshire.”
