Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement this evening on Jim Foley's decision to drop out of the State Senate District 19 race:
"Over the past several days, grassroots activists from across New Hampshire have contacted the Republican State Committee to express their disappointment about recent revelations regarding state senate candidate Jim Foley. We have taken these concerns very seriously given the troubling nature of Mr. Foley's admissions.
"We are pleased that Mr. Foley took Senate President Chuck Morse's advice to end his campaign. This was a difficult decision for Mr. Foley, but it was the right decision for the residents of Senate District 19.
"It's up to Republican primary voters to pick the best candidate to represent our party in November. We are confident that the residents of Windham, Derry and Hampstead will choose a strong nominee on Tuesday."
