After Dodging Town Hall Meetings, Shaheen Now Hiding From Debates


Concord - After dodging town hall meetings with her constituents for 755 days, reclusive and inaccessible Senator Jeanne Shaheen is now trying to hide from general election debates.  Shaheen has refused to respond to Scott Brown's invitation to participate in seven debates to discuss the important issues facing New Hampshire.


"After refusing to hold town hall meetings for over two years, Jeanne Shaheen has no excuse for avoiding debates and trying to deny New Hampshire a robust and substantive discussion about the issues. Jeanne Shaheen doesn't want to debate because she knows that she cannot defend her record of voting with President Obama 99% of the time and her blind support for the failed Obama-Shaheen amnesty policies," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "It's time for Senator Shaheen to break her shameful silence and follow Walt Havenstein's and Governor Hassan's lead by accepting invitations to all seven debates."


Even Maggie Hassan, who like Shaheen doesn't hold town hall meetings, and GOP gubernatorial candidate Walt Havenstein have agreed to participate in seven debates.
