Concord, NH - Today, NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek issued the following statement after Democrats excluded Republicans in the House and Senate from policy decisions in the legislature:
"The people of New Hampshire expect our legislature to work together, despite party differences, to get the job done for the Granite State. Speaker Shurtleff and Senate President Soucy love to claim they are bipartisan and that they seek and take input from both sides of the aisle, but nothing could be further from the truth. New Hampshire deserves new legislative majorities that put the people’s work first - not ones that pursue petty, partisan fights. When Democrats exclude Republicans from the process, they’re excluding the hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters represented by Republicans in the State House and Senate. Until we are included in the process, Republicans should hold off on enabling any rule changes needed to push through the Democrat agenda."
Concord, NH - Today, NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek issued the following statement after Democrats withdrew their lawsuit against House Bill 1264 based off of the New Hampshire Supreme Court’s recent response to questions on the case. HB1264 put New Hampshire in line with every other state when it comes to voter residency:
“After vilifying New Hampshire Republicans for years with false calls of voter suppression, New Hampshire Democrats are admitting today that their faux outrage was all a ruse when they realized they had no fighting chance in court. Democrats wasted everyone’s time and state resources in pursuing this partisan lawsuit.”
Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement after it was reported that Senator Maggie Hassan is being interviewed and vetted by Joe Biden's team as a potential VP nominee:
"This report just confirms what we already knew - Maggie Hassan is always looking to take her next step while leaving New Hampshire in the rearview mirror. Maggie Hassan’s reckless and nationally embarrassing mismanagement of her Senate office disqualifies her from being taken seriously and would cause alarms in any serious vetting process. The Biden campaign is either grossly incompetent to consider her or this is just a cheap courtesy to feign interest interest in New Hampshire after such a poor showing in our First-in-the-Nation Primary."
