NHGOP STATEMENT ON HARRY REID MOCKING HASSAN'S PHONY CALL FOR APOLOGY

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding Harry Reid mocking Governor Hassan's phony call for an apology for his comments disparaging New Hampshire's residents and first-in-the-nation presidential primary:
 
"It's clear that Governor Hassan's biggest Washington political supporter Harry Reid thinks her phony call for an apology for his disrespectful remarks is an insincere, politically-motivated joke. Senator Reid clearly has no respect for New Hampshire or our critical role in the presidential nominating process, and the governor's continued reliance on his financial backing and political support is offensive. It is hypocritical for Governor Hassan to issue a phony call for an apology while continuing to accept the strong support of someone who openly mocks our bipartisan political tradition. The governor should immediately demand Senator Harry Reid keep his Washington political machine out of our Senate race."
 
Earlier today, Governor Hassan refused to answer questions about her continued reliance on Harry Reid's financial backing and political support in light of his offensive and insulting remarks about New Hampshire.
