Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement in response to Governor Maggie Hassan's announcement that she will run for U.S. Senate:
"Governor Gridlock Hassan is trying to leave the corner office after years of failing to lead on the pressing issues facing New Hampshire.
"She has failed to keep and grow jobs in New Hampshire, she has failed to respond adequately to the heroin epidemic and she has failed to work across party lines to do what's right for Granite Staters. Her irresponsible and partisan budget veto left vital programs and resources in limbo, including funding to fight the heroin epidemic and critical support for the elderly and homebound.
"Hassan's playbook of more taxes, more spending, and bigger government has not worked for New Hampshire families and small businesses. Her failed leadership has brought Washington-style gridlock to the governor's office, and the last thing New Hampshire needs in the Senate is another rubberstamp for more partisan politics."
