NHGOP STATEMENT ON NEW HAMPSHIRE DEMOCRAT CALLING POOR GRANITE STATERS "BOTTOM FEEDERS"

 

 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement on Democrat John R. White's statement that economically-disadvantaged Granite Staters are bottom feeders:

 

"Mr. White should immediately apologize for his disturbing remarks, and the New Hampshire Democrats should denounce his statement immediately," said Horn. "It's bad enough that Mr. White is advocating policies that will kill New Hampshire jobs and do further damage to our already stagnant economy, but he adds insult to injury by degrading hard working families who are struggling to get by. We encourage all Republicans to work hard to re-elect Majority Leader Jeb Bradley so we can make sure that Mr. White and his unsavory language never represent the people of New Hampshire." 

 

In a letter to the editor published in a local newspaper, Mr. White wrote that the policies he is promoting "will put more jungle in the jeans of the bottom feeders in the economic pond and they will spend it.  That's what poor people do when they get money because they NEED things."
