NHGOP BLASTS KUSTER SUPPORT FOR OBAMA IRAN DEAL, CALLS ON HASSAN TO DENOUNCE IT 

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today blasted Congresswoman Annie Kuster's decision to support President Obama's deal with Iran and called on likely-Senate candidate Maggie Hassan to denounce it.
 
"Once again, Congresswoman Annie Kuster has decided to blindly support President Obama's disastrous foreign policy agenda that has diminished American's standing on the global stage and threatened our national security. President Obama's reckless deal will not only undermine our strong alliance with Israel, it will allow the Iranian regime to develop a nuclear weapon in the future. As a likely candidate for the United States Senate, Governor Maggie Hassan has repeatedly dodged questions about the Obama Administration's reckless Iran agenda. Granite Staters have a right to know if likely Senate candidate Hassan is willing to march in lock step with President Obama as he pushes irresponsible foreign policies that will make our world a more dangerous place to live."
 
In July, Governor Hassan weighed in on the Iran deal and offered a "non-committal" response according to WMUR-TV.
 
In March, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed Congress and vigorously denounced President Obama's proposed deal with Iran. The Prime Minister has called the agreement a "historic mistake for the world."

NHGOP - STATEMENT ON SHAHEEN ENDORSING CLINTON CORONATION EFFORT

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Senator Jeanne Shaheen endorsing efforts by the Democrat establishment to coronate Hillary Clinton as their Party's presidential nominee:
 
"Billy and Jeanne Shaheen have gone to great lengths in the past to support the Clintons - even intentionally trying to smear Barack Obama during the 2008 New Hampshire primary by implying that he was a drug dealer. Given the Shaheens' history of launching dishonest attacks on behalf on the Clintons, it's not surprising that they are rushing to help prop up her flailing coronation effort. 
 
"The Shaheens have proven that they are willing to engage in dirty politics to support their endorsed candidates, and every Democrat presidential contender should be concerned about their efforts to rig the primary for Hillary Clinton."
 
"Last month, opposition researchers wearing 'New Hampshire for Jeanne Shaheen' shirts were caught sifting through the University of Vermont's special collections archives for information on Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Senator Shaheen's official endorsement of Hillary Clinton raises serious questions about why her supporters have already begun to target Bernie Sanders and what type of dishonest attacks they are planning this year."
 
BACKGROUND
 
"Sen. Hillary Clinton today accepted the resignation of her New Hampshire campaign co-chair a day after he suggested that Barack Obama's candor about his past drug use would open the door to Republican attacks." (Alec MacGillis, "Clinton N.H. Official Resigns After Comments on Obama", Washington Post12/13/2007)

Maggie Hassan's budget proposal a tax increase," PolitiFact.com, 8/27/15)

NHGOP - STATEMENT ON LIBERAL, OUT OF STATE GOVERNOR APPEARANCE IN NH 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement on liberal, out-of-state politician Dannel Malloy lecturing New Hampshire on funding an organization accused of criminal activity:
 
"Granite Staters do not appreciate liberal, fiscally irresponsible, out-of-state politicians like Dannel Malloy who come to our state and lecture us about how to run our state government. Planned Parenthood has been accused of engaging in criminal activity and the United States Congress as well as thirteen governors have launched investigations into this scandal-plagued organization. Given the serious and legitimate accusations that have been made against Planned Parenthood, there is no good reason to give them New Hampshire taxpayer dollars while these investigations are ongoing.
 
"Planned Parenthood has donated thousands of dollars to Governor Hassan's political campaigns, so it is not surprising that she has refused to launch her own investigation. It's time for Governor Hassan to stop playing politics and put the interests of New Hampshire women ahead of Planned Parenthood by working with the Executive Council to find alternate health care providers that are not immersed in scandal."
