RELEASE: Walt Havenstein’s Clueless Responses to Questions About New Hampshire’s Budget Reinforce Why He Can’t Be Allowed to Manage our State

Havenstein Can’t Point To A Single Thing He Would Change About Governor Hassan’s Bipartisan, Fiscally Responsible Solutions

Concord – Walt Havenstein’s clueless responses to questions about New Hampshire’s budget reinforces, once again, why Havenstein can’t be allowed to run our state. At his own press conference, Havenstein failed to name a single thing that he would change about Governor Hassan’s bipartisan, fiscally responsible solutions. In an effort to rescue a flailing Havenstein, Senator Morse also criticized the bipartisan plans to end the costly mental health and Medicaid Enhancement Tax (MET) lawsuits that threatened our state’s budget and bond rating, which passed unanimously in the Senate.

RELEASE: Hassan Campaign Statement on Anti-Women, Anti-Equality Changes to NHGOP Platform

Concord – Hassan Campaign Manager Marc Goldberg issued the following statement on the anti-women, anti-equality changes to the New Hampshire Republican Party’s platform:

“It’s shameful that Walt Havenstein failed to stand up to the extreme members of his party and block the anti-women, anti-equality changes to the New Hampshire Republican Party’s platform. Women’s health issues are economic issues, because if women can’t afford the basic health services they need or if they aren’t able to access reproductive health services that allow them to decide the right time in their lives to begin a family, then it puts a strain on them financially. And opposing marriage equality hurts thousands of loving New Hampshire couples and families who deserve the right to marry whom they choose. Havenstein and the New Hampshire Republican Party are completely out of touch with the priorities of Granite State families and would take us backwards, undoing years of bipartisan progress and undermining our economic future.”

In deciding who to support at the polls this November, there were a few qualities I was specifically looking for. I want a candidate who combines compassion with pragmatism – an elected official who will look at the cards as they are dealt and figure out how they can use them to best help the people they were elected to lead in the most responsible way possible.
