NRSC - Happy Birthday Governor Hassan


WASHINGTON – With Governor Maggie Hassan eyeing a Senate bid, the NRSC is sending the Governor her very own Keno card that won’t balance her proposed budget, but does wish her the best on her special day.




“We know how much Governor Hassan likes Keno and while it’s not the way to fund her budget, we do hope she picks some lucky numbers on her birthday,” said NRSC spokesman Jahan Wilcox.

THE CONCORD MONITOR: “It’s not a casino, it’s keno. In the electronic gambling game, players pick from among dozens of numbers and win money if the computer randomly selects their choices. If keno came to New Hampshire, it would draw $26 million in state revenue over the next two years, according to the budget plan Gov. Maggie Hassan presented to lawmakers last week. While Hassan voiced support for keno, she didn’t so much as mention the word casino in her budget address.
