Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on Senator Jeanne Shaheen's attempt to distract from her support for a sales tax. Shaheen announced today that she will talk about a sales tax tomorrow:
"As a candidate for governor, Jeanne Shaheen lied to New Hampshire when she pledged to oppose a broad based tax. After taking office, Shaheen broke her word and tried to destroy the New Hampshire Advantage by attempting to impose a disastrous sales tax that would have crushed small businesses.
"Shaheen's dishonest attempt to distract from enthusiastic support for a sales tax is another sign of her increasingly desperate campaign. Granite Staters are smart enough to see through her shameless political tactics and recognize that she is a tax and spend liberal who has voted for President Obama's failed policies 99 percent of the time."
