Concord, NH--Today, Chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party Ray Buckley released the following statement in response to news that disgraced former House Speaker Bill O'Brien plans to run for reelection and pursue the Speakership.
"Bill O'Brien's tenure as Speaker was an unmitigated disaster. His far-right, Tea Party policies and unwillingness to work across the aisle hurt New Hampshire families and disgraced the Granite State. The effects of his painful budget cuts and irresponsible leadership are still being felt by seniors, students, and working families alike. There is no way that voters in November will choose to send O'Brien back to the State House. He has shown that he cannot be trusted to serve the people of New Hampshire.
"Democrats across the state are organized and united, and ready to work every day to stop candidates like failed Speaker--and general embarrassment--Bill O'Brien from running our state into the ground."
