NHGOP: Shaheen, Lynch should denounce Biden Primary comments
The New Hampshire Republican State Committee amped up its attacks on both state and national Democrats today, slamming Vice President Joe Biden for his recent comments on the presidential primary schedule.
Chairman Wayne MacDonald released the following statement:
“Jeanne Shaheen and Ray Buckley should immediately condemn the Vice President for his statements and vigorously defend New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation status. It is insulting that Joe Biden would insinuate that New Hampshire is a small and insignificant state in comparison to states like California and Florida.
“Jeanne Shaheen’s democrat party was quick to criticize New Hampshire Republicans for Florida’s move yesterday, yet remains silent while Vice President Joe Biden is in Florida undermining the importance of the New Hampshire Primary. Myself as well as the Republican members of the delegation, were quick to weigh-in in support of our Primary yesterday, we expect the same reaction from the Democrat party when it is one of their own who attacks our First in the Nation status.”
Between a successful and well-attended fundraising event earlier this week and this red meat offering for the party base, the NHGOP is clearly ramping up its activities as campaign season heats up.
