NHGOP STATEMENT: HYPOCRITE HASSAN POSTS B-ROLL VIDEO FOR OUTSIDE MONEY GROUPS 

 

 

 
Concord – Despite her public attacks against outside money groups, Governor Maggie Hassan’s campaign this week posted b-roll video on its campaign YouTube account for third party groups to use in ads. NH1 News reports that the stock footage was posted on Sunday.
 
“Governor Hassan obviously posted this stock footage for liberal special interest groups to use in third party ads. The governor has been caught red-handed giving dark money groups the green light to begin flooding New Hampshire's airwaves,” said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "The Governor can’t have it both ways by publicly attacking outside political groups while quietly welcoming their support. If Governor Hassan actually cares about limiting the influence of Super PACs, she needs to put her money where her mouth is and join Senator Ayotte in signing the same People’s Pledge that Senators Elizabeth Warren and Jeanne Shaheen signed.”
 
Governor Hassan has a disgraceful history of breaking campaign finance laws. In 2014, the New Hampshire Department of Justice forced her to return $33,000 in illegal campaign contributions.

NH GOP - WASH POST: HASSAN AND SHAHEEN “LOSERS” OF THE FIRST IN THE NATION PRIMARY 

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.

NHGOP STATEMENT ON FIRST IN THE NATION PRIMARY RESULTS 

 

CONCORD – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today following tonight's First in the Nation Primary results.
"I want to offer my congratulations and gratitude to all of our Republican candidates tonight.  The 2016 Republican primary has offered the American people the most qualified and diverse field ofcandidates our party has ever seen and I am fully confident that amongst those who are moving on to South Carolina is the next President of the United States.
I also extend a very sincere thank you to everyone who volunteered their efforts to any of the campaigns.  Activists are the heart and soul of every political effort and it is their dedication and passion that grows and preserves our great party.
Tonight, New Hampshire Democrats embarrassed Hillary Clinton by overwhelmingly supported a radical socialist who supports policies that would kill jobs and destroy our economy. Bernie Sanders decisive victory shows how extreme the Democrat Party has become and how dramatically out of touch it is with the values and priorities of middle class families."

NHGOP STATEMENT ON GOVERNOR HASSAN’S STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS 

 

 
CONCORD – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today following Governor Maggie Hassan’s final State of the State address.
“It comes as no surprise that Governor Gridlock Maggie Hassan’s State of the State speech was short on substance and long on rhetoric, given that Hassan’s time in Concord has been marked by her lack of leadership and failure to address the challenges facing New Hampshire today. As she was paying lip service to bipartisanship, Governor Hassan must have forgotten how her failed veto and summer of gridlock put funding for critical services at risk. While touting business innovation and our state’s competitiveness, Hassan must have forgotten how New Hampshire’s economic recovery and job growth have been stalled and sluggish because of her tax and spend policies.”
“Governor Hassan is so eager to abandon New Hampshire for Harry Reid and Washington Democrats that she has completely failed to do her job in Concord. Granite Staters deserve better from their Governor, and they will remember her dismal record this November.”
