Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement in response to President Obama's strong endorsement of Senator Jeanne Shaheen. In an interview that aired on NECN last night, the president praised Shaheen as a "great senator."
"Jeanne Shaheen votes with President Obama 99 percent of the time and cast the deciding vote for his failed health care law. So its not surprising that the president is desperate to keep a loyal lackey like Jeanne Shaheen in the Senate to rubber stamp his disastrous agenda," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "If President Obama is really interested in promoting Senator Shaheen's candidacy, we strongly urge him to come to New Hampshire and personally campaign with her. Please - be our guest."
According to a recent UNH poll 51% of New Hampshire adults disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president and only 42% approve.
