Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement after the Shaheen-Portman Energy Efficiency Bill failed to pass cloture in the United States Senate:
"Partisan Washington politicians like Jeanne Shaheen are directly responsible for the failure of this legislation because they refused to even consider amendments to approve the bipartisan Keystone XL Pipeline. Senator Shaheen continues to blindly support President Obama 99 percent of the time and side with the special interest groups who are bankrolling her campaign because of her opposition to this commonsense energy project.
"Senator Shaheen has called the Shaheen-Portman Energy Efficiency Bill her "defining" legislation. But after its defeat, Senator Shaheen doesn't have a single legislative accomplishment to run on as she seeks re-election. It's time to end Jeanne Shaheen's failed tenure in the Senate and replace her with a responsible Republican who can get results for New Hampshire."
