Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement following Senator Shaheen and Hassan's reckless votes against much needed COVID-19 relief:

“Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s laugh when casting her nay vote on COVID19 relief while working men and women of New Hampshire eagerly await economic relief is despicable. While Senator Shaheen and Senator Hassan are voting lockstep with their Senate Democrat colleagues to include the Green New Deal and other left-wing agenda pieces into the relief package, New Hampshire workers and families are suffering. The people of New Hampshire sent Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan to Washington to fight for us, but all they ever seem to do is fight against us as they do Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s bidding.”
