DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to Visit New Hampshire

FRIDAY: DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz to Visit New Hampshire, Discuss Republicans’ Failed Records and Backwards Priorities

 

WASHINGTON – Today the Democratic National Committee announced that DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz will visit New Hampshire on Friday, April 17, 2015. The Chair will be in Nashua on the sidelines of the NHGOP’s #FITN Republican Leadership Summit to highlight the damaging impact the Republican 2016 presidential hopefuls would have on the middle class and hardworking families in the Granite State and across the country.

Wasserman Schultz will also join Ray Buckley, Chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, for a press conference Friday morning to discuss the current GOP field and its steadfast commitment to the tired Republican playbook and to policies that move the country backwards: opposing increasing the minimum wage and equal pay legislation, promoting policies that benefit the wealthiest few at the expense of the middle class, and turning back the clock for women’s health and LGBT equality.

 

“Republicans running, or considering a run, for the White House in 2016 have stumbled all over themselves to brandish their conservative credentials, and their out of touch policies leave everyday Americans behind,” said DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “This group of Republicans are pushing policies that will benefit the wealthy at the expense of hardworking Granite State families and would turn back the clock on women’s health, and LGBT equality. The Granite State and the country deserve better.”

More details about Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s visit will be released soon.

NH GOP - Chris Christie: Ready to Lead? 

FROM THE DESK OF
GOVERNOR CHRIS CHRISTIE   
Friend,

In just two weeks, we have the opportunity to demonstrate the strength of our party and make clear that Republicans are ready to lead our country in a new direction. Grassroots activists from across New Hampshire will be gathering at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Summit on April 17-18 to hear conservative leaders share their ideas for the future after years of weak and ineffective leadership in the White House. 

Like you, I respect a leader who has the fortitude to make the hard choices -- especially those who can put what's best for our long-term interests ahead of what is politically expedient. I will be attending the summit to share my vision for a stronger America, an America where our leaders are focused on creating opportunities for every citizen to succeed and make tough decisions in order to get our country back on the right track to create a growing national economy.

If you have not already registered for the New Hampshire Republican State Committee's First in the Nation Republican Leadership Summit, you can click here for more information and to register.

There are many important issues in the Granite State, and I look forward to seeing you on April 17th at the Crowne Plaza in Nashua so I can answer your questions and discuss our shared goal of a future filled with better opportunities for our children and grandchildren.

Sincerely,

Chris Christie
Governor of New Jersey
