Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today regarding disgraced Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lying about his communications with Governor Maggie Hassan. Reid, an admitted liar who misled voters about Mitt Romney's taxes during the 2012 presidential election, tried to deny national media reports that he contacted Hassan and urged her to run for Senate.
"Senator Harry Reid is an admitted liar who disgraced himself and embarrassed his constituents by using the floor of the United States Senate to smear Governor Romney with false attacks. He can't be trusted to tell the truth and nothing he says can be taken seriously. Governor Hassan is clearly using her job as a stepping-stone for higher office and new attack ads launched by Harry Reid's Super PAC on her behalf are a clear indication that they are working together to launch her Senate campaign. It's time for Governor Hassan and Senator Reid to stop lying to New Hampshire and come clean about their close association and coordinated efforts to plot the next step in her political career."
