NHGOP BLASTS SHAHEEN SUPPORT FOR OBAMA IRAN DEAL, CALLS ON HASSAN TO DENOUNCE IT

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today blasted Senator Jeanne Shaheen's decision to support President Obama's disastrous deal with Iran and called on likely-Senate candidate Maggie Hassan to denounce it. 

"Once again, Senator Jeanne Shaheen has decided to blindly support President Obama's disastrous foreign policy agenda that has diminished American's standing on the global stage and threatened our national security. President Obama's reckless deal will not only undermine our strong alliance with Israel, it will allow the Iranian regime to develop a nuclear weapon in the future," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "As a likely candidate for the United States Senate, Governor Maggie Hassan has a responsibility to speak out against the Obama Administration's reckless Iran agenda. Granite Staters have a right to know if likely Senate candidate Hassan is willing to march in lock step with President Obama as he pushes irresponsible foreign policies that will make our world a more dangerous place to live."

 

Last month, Governor Hassan weighed in on the Iran deal and offered a "non-committal" response according to WMUR-TV.

In March, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Congress and vigorously denounced President Obama's proposed deal with Iran. The Prime Minister has called the agreement "historic mistake for the world."
