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."

NHDP - Granite State Democrats Complete Successful Statewide Series of Grassroots Summits 

Over 500 Total People Turned Out for 12 Summits Across State

 
Concord, NH-- The New Hampshire Democratic Party completed its statewide grassroots training program with it's 12th and final summit last night in Meredith. Each summit united volunteers, activists, and community members dedicated to electing strong, Democratic leaders this coming November. Over the past two months, Democrats from all ten counties, Manchester and Nashua met to partake in training sessions ranging from persuasive neighbor-to-neighbor communication strategies, tactics to maximize a social media presence, and effective fundraising methods.

"Over the course of 12 summits, over 500 New Hampshire grassroots Democrats showed their enthusiasm for the reelection of Governor Hassan, Senator Shaheen, Congresswomen Shea-Porter and Kuster and our entire Democratic team. There are less than six months until Election Day, and New Hampshire Democrats are highly energized and organized. At every summit, this was clear: Granite State Democrats won't let a single day go to waste," said State Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. "We are making sure we continue to have the best grassroots team to spread our message across the state and get out the vote in November."


At each summit, the trainings, discussions, and presentations were led by staff representatives from the State Party's communications, political, and finance offices. Attendees of each summit were provided with materials and contact information to ensure all local grassroots organizations have access to the resources they need to build and develop winning campaigns.
