NHGOP STATEMENT ON TONIGHT'S WMUR/UNION LEADER GUBERNATORIAL DEBATE

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


 "Maggie Hassan is New Hampshire's Barack Obama, and she demonstrated yet again tonight that she has failed miserably as governor and has not earned a second term. She has failed to grow the economy, create jobs and manage the Granite State budget. She lied about repeated support for an income tax in our state and mislead voters about her disastrous LLC tax, which she slipped into the budget as Senate majority leader in 2009. Maggie Hassan is simply using the corner office in Concord to plan her 2016 Senate campaign, and her reckless tenure as governor has been a disaster. Our state deserves a governor who will put New Hampshire first, and voters will choose a new direction for our state by electing Walt Havenstein on November 4."
