Concord - Today Governor Hassan endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, one of the chief proponents of President Obama's deal with Iran. Governor Hassan has yet to take a public stand on the Iran deal, hiding behind the now resolved budget crisis:
"For months, Governor Hassan has dodged questions regarding her position on President Obama's deal with Iran, hiding behind the chaos she created with her reckless veto of the state operating budget," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Fortunately, the Legislature overrode the governor's irresponsible veto, and now she has no good excuse to continue avoiding taking a stand on one of the most important issues facing our country today. Hillary Clinton is one of the chief proponents of President Obama's deal with Iran, and by endorsing her for president, Governor Hassan is implicitly endorsing this disastrous deal. The governor should immediately clarify her position on the Iran deal if she disagrees with Hillary Clinton."
