Governor’s Backing A Political Bust For Clinton Campaign
Concord – Hillary Clinton’s support in the Granite State has continued to collapse since Governor Maggie Hassan formally announced her support for the former Secretary of State’s candidacy.
Clinton trailed Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) 46% - 30% in a poll conducted the University of New Hampshire Survey Center in July – their last survey released before Hassan’s September 17, 2015 endorsement. A UNH survey released yesterday shows Sanders now surging to a commanding 27 point lead over Clinton, beating her 60% - 33%.
“Hillary Clinton is on the verge of a humiliating New Hampshire primary loss and Governor Hassan’s worthless endorsement has been a political bust for her struggling campaign. The governor has invested a significant amount of political capital in Clinton’s candidacy, and the results have been nothing short of a complete and utter embarrassment,” said NHGOP Jennifer Horn. “A Clinton defeat in New Hampshire will be a direct rebuke of Governor Hassan and her political operation.”
Governor Hassan will hold an event for the Clinton campaign today in Concord with former President Bill Clinton and Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta.
