Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding Executive Councilor Colin Van Ostern's announcement that he will run for Governor of New Hampshire:
"As a career politician with few real life accomplishments, Councilor Van Ostern's announcement that he will run for another political office should come as no surprise. The councilor's record is so lackluster that even Democrat Party bosses are actively recruiting one term Portsmouth City Councilor Stefany Shaheen to run against him. Granite Staters deserve an independent voice with commonsense values and a willingness to compromise, not a rigid ideologue whose commitment to party politics runs deeper than his commitment to New Hampshire's best interests. Van Ostern's history as a reliable partisan dedicated to political extremism and Washington special interests make him the wrong choice to lead New Hampshire."
