Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to donate all of the tainted campaign contributions she received from disgraced Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) to charity. Buzzfeed today reported that Shaheen is refusing to give up the donations and will only commit to holding them pending the outcome of his trial. Democratic Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Michael Bennet (D-CO) have decided to give up the donations immediately:

"Senator Klobuchar and Senator Bennet made the right decision to get rid of disgraced Senator Bob Menendez's tainted contributions. Senator Shaheen has no good reason to continue to hold on to Menedez's dirty money, and she needs to follow the lead of her senate colleagues and get rid of it immediately," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Senator Shaheen's continued unwillingness to purge these tainted donations from her campaign coffers raises serious questions about her commitment to integrity and ethics in government."

In 2008, then-candidate Shaheen called on Senator John Sununu to return campaign donations from Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK) after he was indicted, but before his trial. 

"Senator Shaheen demanded that Senator Sununu return campaign contributions from indicted Senator Ted Stevens but won't return her own donations from indicted Senator Bob Menendez. Granite Staters are smart enough to realize that she is a dishonest hypocrite who holds herself to a different standard than she holds others." 


NH GOP - Chris Christie: Ready to Lead? 


In just two weeks, we have the opportunity to demonstrate the strength of our party and make clear that Republicans are ready to lead our country in a new direction. Grassroots activists from across New Hampshire will be gathering at the First in the Nation Republican Leadership Summit on April 17-18 to hear conservative leaders share their ideas for the future after years of weak and ineffective leadership in the White House. 

Like you, I respect a leader who has the fortitude to make the hard choices -- especially those who can put what's best for our long-term interests ahead of what is politically expedient. I will be attending the summit to share my vision for a stronger America, an America where our leaders are focused on creating opportunities for every citizen to succeed and make tough decisions in order to get our country back on the right track to create a growing national economy.

If you have not already registered for the New Hampshire Republican State Committee's First in the Nation Republican Leadership Summit, you can click here for more information and to register.

There are many important issues in the Granite State, and I look forward to seeing you on April 17th at the Crowne Plaza in Nashua so I can answer your questions and discuss our shared goal of a future filled with better opportunities for our children and grandchildren.

Call Follows Sen. Klobuchar's Decision To Return Disgraced New Jersey Senator's Contributions


Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today called on Senator Jeanne Shaheen to return donations from disgraced New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez. Menendez, who donated $7,500 to Shaheen through his New Millennium PAC, was indicted yesterday on bribery charges in what prosecutors called a scheme to trade political favors for luxury vacations, golf outings and expensive flights (New York Times, 4/1/15). Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) announced last night that she would voluntarily return all contributions from Menendez and his leadership PAC (USA Today4/2/15).


"Granite Staters expect their elected officials to stand up for integrity and high ethical standards in government. The criminal corruption charges that have been brought against Senator Menendez are extremely troubling, and it's time for Senator Shaheen to distance herself from her disgraced Democrat colleague by returning his tainted campaign donations," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Senator Amy Klobuchar made the right decision to return her tainted contributions. It's time for Senator Shaheen to follow her lead and immediately dump her dirty Menendez money."


In 2013, WMUR reported that Senator Menendez personally sent an email to his list of supporters asking them to donate money to Shaheen's reelection campaign.




Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the passage of the House Budget:

"House Republicans deserve credit for crafting a responsible budget that funds core services, lives within our means and doesn't raise taxes on working families. This plan relies on realistic revenue estimates and offers a serious start to the budget process.

"For the second straight budget cycle, Governor Hassan has presented a flawed and unworkable proposal that increases state spending by $1 billion and crushes small businesses with painful tax increases. Hassan continues to prove that she is unable to provide fiscal leadership for our state and incapable of balancing the state budget.

"Without any leadership coming from the corner office, House and Senate Republicans are solely responsible for preserving New Hampshire's fiscal integrity. The plan passed today by House Republicans is a responsible first step toward finalizing a sound budget that will protect our low tax environment from Governor Hassan's reckless agenda."


NHDP - Statement on NHGOP’s Endorsement of Devastating House Budget Cuts 

Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on the New Hampshire Republican Party’s endorsement of N.H. House Republicans’ devastating budget cuts: 
“Kelly Ayotte, Chris Sununu and New Hampshire Republicans up and down the ticket now own the devastating budget cuts put forth by House Republicans that have been decried by families, seniors, clergy, advocates, community organizations and editorial boards in every corner of the state.”
“It makes perfect sense that New Hampshire Republicans would follow the lead of their Koch Brothers benefactors, whose New Hampshire arm, Americans for Prosperity-NH, endorsed these devastating cuts last week.”
“The New Hampshire Republican Party’s endorsement of these reckless cuts proves once again that the NHGOP will always side with special interest allies against the priorities of New Hampshire’s small businesses and middle class families.”
