RELEASE: In WGIR Debate, Walt Havenstein Tried and Failed to Run Away from His Koch Brothers Agenda that Would Take New Hampshire’s Economy Backwards

MANCHESTER— Hassan Campaign Press Secretary Aaron Jacobs released the following statement on today’s WGIR debate.

“In today’s WGIR debate, failed CEO Walt Havenstein repeatedly misled voters about signing the Koch Brothers pledge and promising to repeal access to health coverage from 50,000 Granite Staters. Havenstein still had no defense for his so-called “plan” that’s straight out of the Koch Brothers playbook and would blow a $90 million hole in the state’s budget to give more tax giveaways to big businesses, while making middle class families and small businesses pay the price.”

“While Governor Hassan made clear that she knows how to bring people together to get things done for New Hampshire’s people, businesses and economy, Havenstein once again pledged his allegiance to the slash-and-burn policies of Bill O’Brien and the Koch Brothers.”
