NH GOP - HASSAN BACKS DOWN FROM NURSING HOME RAID 

Sudden Reversal Follows Public Outcry Over Devastating Cuts

 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding Governor Hassan's backing down from her raid of dedicated funds for nursing homes: 

 

"While it is welcome news that Governor Hassan has backed down from cutting millions to New Hampshire nursing homes, it is long overdue. Governor Hassan's failure to lead on this important issue not only caused unnecessary distress for those affected, but demonstrated how irresponsible and out-of-touch she is on issues critical to New Hampshire's elderly. Fortunately, the Republican Senate led by Senators Morse and Forrester showed the leadership that Governor Hassan refused to show. We hope that in the future Governor Hassan will take the opportunity to listen to responsible Republican leaders in the legislature and heed their advice."

NH GOP - FEDERAL ELECTION COMMISSION FINES NH DEMS $4,375 

Party Violated Federal Elections Campaign Act

 

Concord - Citing a "series of reporting errors" and multiple violations of the Federal Election Campaign Act, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) has fined the New Hampshire Democrat Party $4,375. The FEC fine follows actions taken last year by the New Hampshire Department of Justice against Governor Maggie Hassan's reelection campaign after it accepted $33,000 in illegal campaign contributions

 

"Governor Hassan and the New Hampshire Democrat Party have exhibited a troubling pattern of illegal behavior and a complete disregard for state and federal campaign finance regulations. As the senior Democrat elected official in New Hampshire, Governor Hassan needs to take responsibility for this unethical conduct and explain why her political operation continues to break the law," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn.

 

The Department of Justice forced Hassan to return all of her illegal campaign contributions to the big money, special interest political action committees that were attempting to buy influence over her administration.

NHGOP STATEMENT ON NHDP PELOSI FUNDRAISER 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today regarding the New Hampshire Democratic Party's McIntyre-Shaheen 100 Club Dinner at which Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Governor Hassan spoke:

 

"Nancy Pelosi represents everything that is wrong with Washington: gridlock, dysfunction and hyper-partisanship. That Governor Hassan would associate with one of Washington's most out-of-touch and extreme politicians is both problematic and telling. While Republicans are engaged in thoughtful debate about the future of our nation, Governor Hassan and her Democratic allies are pushing the same tired ideas and stale politicians of a bygone era."

NH GOP - Urgent Second Amendment Issue 

Friend,


Governor Maggie Hassan has threatened to veto bipartisan legislation that would reform New Hampshire concealed carry laws.


Law abiding Granite Staters already have the right to carry, but need to ask permission to carry in their cars, under a jacket, or in a purse. Too often, local officials deny or delay permits for no good reason. This commonsense legislation would address this problem and ensure that Granite Staters have the basic right to self-defense.

 

Maggie's motives are clear - she is trying to cozy up to radical, out of state, big money gun control groups that want to restrict our Second Amendment rights. She is desperate to get her hands on the millions of dollars that gun grabbers like liberal New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will funnel into her campaign coffers as she plots a run for the United States Senate.

 

Maggie's gun control allies have already spent millions in New Hampshire, and intend to spend even more. Even worse, these discredited groups have held events in our state to push their radical agenda that have honored thugs, murderers and terrorists including the Boston Marathon bomber.

We need your help to fight Maggie's dangerous gun control allies and elect more pro-Second Amendment Republicans in 2016. Please click here to help us by contributing $50, $75 or $100.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jennifer Horn

NHGOP SLAMS HASSAN'S CONCEALED CARRY REFORM VETO THREAT

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding Governor Hassan's threat to veto bipartisan concealed carry reform legislation:

 

"Law abiding Granite Staters already have the right to carry, but need to ask permission to carry in their cars, under a jacket, or in a purse. Too often, local officials deny or delay permits for no good reason, denying people the basic right to self-defense. This commonsense, bipartisan legislation would address this issue and only apply to New Hampshire residents who already have the right to own or possess firearms. It would not change laws prohibiting criminals from carrying firearms.

 

"Gun control advocates like Governor Hassan want to undermine the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens while criminals continue to ignore gun control laws. It's clear that Governor Hassan is trying to curry favor with radical out-of-state gun control groups who can funnel money into her United States Senate campaign instead of standing up for the rights of New Hampshire gun owners."
