NHGOP RESPONDS TO OBAMA'S STRONG ENDORSEMENT OF SHAHEEN

NHGOP Banner

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement in response to President Obama's strong endorsement of Senator Jeanne Shaheen. In an interview that aired on NECN last night, the president praised Shaheen as a "great senator."

 

"Jeanne Shaheen votes with President Obama 99 percent of the time and cast the deciding vote for his failed health care law. So its not surprising that the president is desperate to keep a loyal lackey like Jeanne Shaheen in the Senate to rubber stamp his disastrous agenda," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "If President Obama is really interested in promoting Senator Shaheen's candidacy, we strongly urge him to come to New Hampshire and personally campaign with her. Please - be our guest."

 

According to a recent UNH poll 51% of New Hampshire adults disapprove of the job Obama is doing as president and only 42% approve.

NHDP - NH Dems Chair: GOP Conference Highlights Republican Weakness

GOP Agenda Favors Big Corporate Interests, Wall Street, Big Oil


Concord, NH -- Bringing their Big Oil, Wall Street agenda to a Nashua, New Hampshire conference, a long list of failed Republican candidates this weekend offer reminders of why their failed.

“Failed candidates talking about failed policies – that is what this weekend is,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley.  “Scott Brown, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, and Linda McMahon were all rejected by voters in their states who didn't want to go back to the policies of the past that wrecked the economy and punished the middle class.”

“Now Scott Brown appears to be ready to be rejected by voters in two states, because the people of New Hampshire don't want a Senator who represents Big Oil and Wall Street," said Buckley.

Republicans from throughout New England are gathering in Nashua this weekend for a two-day regional conference.

“This weekend isn’t about the kitchen table issues important to the people of New Hampshire like increasing the minimum wage or paycheck fairness. This weekend is about protecting the interests of big corporations, Big Oil, and Wall Street. Big Oil isn’t spending big bucks here in New Hampshire because they care about the people of New Hampshire. Big Oil and Wall Street and the big corporate interests think they can buy our senate seat for someone like Scott Brown who votes to protect their interests, not ours," Buckley said.

Buckley, today released a "GOP Reminder Checklist" so the people of New Hampshire can be sure to remember exactly where the Republicans stand as they gather this weekend in Nashua.

Remember Republicans are opposed to increasing the minimum wage.

Remember Republicans supporting millions in giveaways to Big Oil.

Remember Republicans let Wall Street off the hook for $19 billion to help pay for financial reforms.

Remember Republicans shutdown the government.

Remember Republicans opposed asking millionaires to pay their fair share in taxes.

Remember Republicans would allow employers to deny women health care coverage for birth control.

 

“The contrast couldn’t be clearer. While Republicans are set on moving our country backwards, Democrats are working on issues that matter most to New Hampshire families,” added Buckley. “Raising the minimum wage and protecting equal pay for equal work are commonsense way to strengthen the middle class; that’s why it’s a proposal supported by the overwhelming majority of Americans and Granite Staters - just not the out of touch GOP.”

NHGOP BLASTS SHAHEEN'S BLATANT HYPOCRISY ON OUTSIDE MONEY

Call For People's Pledge Comes On Same Weekend She Attending West Coast DSCC Fundraisers

 

Concord - On the same weekend that she is on the West Coast participating in a series of high-priced fundraisers sponsored by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen hypocritically called for an end to outside money in politics.

 

Shaheen's left coast swing comes on the heels of her attendance last month at the San Francisco millionaire Tom Steyer, a radical environmentalist who has pledged to spend upwards of $100 million in outside ads benefitting Democratic candidates this fall. Demonstrating her strong support of Steyer, Shaheen also participated in the Democrats' meaningless all-night talkathon on the Senate floor to push their agenda of cap and trade and higher energy prices.

 

"For Senator Shaheen to be speaking out against outside money on the same weekend she is in California lining the coffers of her third-party special allies goes beyond the normal levels of hypocrisy from Washington politicians," said New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn. "After six years of voting down the line for President Obama'a left-wing agenda, it's clear Jeanne Shaheen is more comfortable in the living rooms of San Francisco environmentalists than she is with New Hampshire families.  But her stunt today represents  D.C. politics at its very worst. New Hampshire voters are smart enough to see through Jeanne Shaheen's hypocrisy and double standards."

 

According to the left-wing fundraising out aggregator Act Blue, Shaheen is attending at least three California fundraisers this weekend:
