Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Executive Councilor Chris Sununu announcing his campaign for governor in Salem today:
"Maggie Hassan has been an ineffective, hyper-partisan governor who has threated core state services with her politically motivated veto of the state budget. Governor Hassan has been focused on advancing herpolitical career instead of serving her constituents, and its clear that she is using the corner office as a stepping-stone for a United States Senate campaign.
"Republicans are pleased that an extremely formidable candidate like Chris Sununu is already declaring his candidacy while qualified candidates like Representative Frank Edelblut are also considering running. We expect a positive and productive primary that will produce a strong nominee who willtake back the corner office in 2016."
