Concord – Following Secretary Hillary Clinton’s humiliating defeat last night, the Washington Post declared her top New Hampshire supporters Governor Maggie Hassan and Senator Jeanne Shaheen as two of the biggest “losers” of the primary.
“The sitting governor and the state's Democratic senator were high-profile endorsers and surrogates for Clinton in New Hampshire. Didn't matter. Like, at all. Which provides yet further evidence that endorsements are, almost always, meaningless in the context of a presidential primary process,” wrote the Post.
“Governor Hassan and Senator Shaheen enthusiastically endorsed Hillary Clinton and threw the weight of their political machines behind her disastrous candidacy. Last night’s results are an enormous embarrassment for the governor and the senator and raise serious questions about Hassan’s political operation as she runs for higher officer,” said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn.
