Ahead Of Likely Iran Deal Vote, Hassan Has Yet To Take A Stand
Concord - Ahead of this week's likely vote on President Obama's dangerous deal with Iran, Governor Hassan has yet to take a public stand, despite telling WMUR in July that she was reviewing the deal and waiting to hear the "full details and implications of the agreement." New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement in response to her silence:
"Governor Hassan has had months to review President Obama's disastrous deal with Iran, and her continued silence is unacceptable. Refusing to take a position isn't leadership, and New Hampshire deserves elected officials who have the courage to take a stand on important issues. Governor Hassan should put our national security interests ahead of her blind allegiance to President Obama and immediately denounce this reckless deal with Iran."
According to a Pew Poll released yesterday, the American public is overwhelmingly opposed to the Iran Deal, with only 21% approving and 49% disapproving.
WMUR: "Gov. Maggie Hassan Tuesday Weighed In On The Iran Nuclear Weapons Deal Struck By The Obama Administration, Saying...She Wants To Hear More About The 'Full Details And Implications Of The Agreement.'" "Gov. Maggie Hassan Tuesday weighed in on the Iran nuclear weapons deal struck by the Obama administration, saying through a spokesman while she is focused on state issues, particularly the budget, 'like all Americans' she wants to hear more about the 'full details and implications of the agreement.'"

WMUR: "Her Office's Twitter Post And Comment...On The Iran Deal Were Her First Commentaries Related To U.S. Foreign Policy As Governor" "Her office's Twitter post and comment Tuesday on the Iran deal were her first commentaries related to U.S. foreign policy as governor, heightening speculation about her political plans. The governor has been mentioned as a leading potential candidate to face Republican U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte in 2016." (John DiStaso, "Hassan weighs in, noncommittal, on Iran deal," WMUR, 7/14/15)
