Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Governor Martin O'Malley's trip to New Hampshire:
"Granite Staters expect potential presidential candidates to earn their vote and participate in robust and competitive primaries. It is unfortunate that the leadership of the New Hampshire Democrat Party has insulted New Hampshire's time-honored political process by suggesting that credible candidates like Governor O'Malley should not even have the opportunity to stand on the same stage and debate Hillary Clinton.
"The New Hampshire Republican State Committee understands that it's up to grassroots activists, not party insiders, to select the nominees of each party. We welcome Governor O'Malley to the Granite State and regret that he has been disrespected by Democrats party leaders who are blatantly attempting to stamp out a serious primary challenge to Hillary Clinton."
