NHDP Statements on Maggie Hassan’s Candidacy for U.S. Senate




Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on Maggie Hassan’s candidacy to represent New Hampshire in the U.S. Senate:
“Under Governor Maggie Hassan’s strong bipartisan leadership, New Hampshire’s economy is moving in the right direction with the fastest economic growth in New England and the unemployment rate at its lowest level since 2008. Now, in order to keep our state moving forward, we need two Senators who will fight to take on the Washington lobbyists and special interests who write the rules to benefit themselves while making small businesses and middle class families pay the price.”
“Washington is broken and special interest favorite Kelly Ayotte is part of the problem. Since going to Washington, Ayotte has put her special interest backers first, protecting tax breaks for big oil companies and outsourcers while voting to turn Medicare into a voucher program, defund Planned Parenthood, and make higher education more expensive.”
“We need to bring New Hampshire’s tradition of common sense problem-solving to the Senate, and that’s exactly what Maggie Hassan will do as Senator.”
