Concord, NH - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement after it was announced that the New Hampshire Republican Party's Executive Director Matt Mowers was subpoenaed to testify in front of a legislative committee as part of the investigation into the political revenge scandal circling New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Countless reports place Mowers at the center of this evolving scandal, having approached the Mayor of Fort Lee about an endorsement for Governor Christie's reelection campaign and working directly under former Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Kelly in the Christie administration.
"As soon as Matt Mowers began his work as the Executive Director of the New Hampshire Republican Party, it became evident that the Chris Christie culture of intimidation and personal attacks had infiltrated the NHGOP," said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. "It has been over three months since the fallout from this scandal found it's way into New Hampshire, and there are still countless question for both Matt Mowers and Chris Christie to answer. It is our hope that Matt Mowers will fully cooperate and comply with all investigations, on both a state and federal level."
