The Republican Governors Association launched its first television ad buy in the New Hampshire governor’s race today, going on the air with a 30-second spot highlighting Democratic nominee Maggie Hassan’s support for higher taxes when she was Majority Leader in the New Hampshire state senate. The group simultaneously launched a website reinforcing the ad’s messaging, www.HassanTaxHikes.com.
“The last time Maggie Hassan held political power in New Hampshire, she worked to increase taxes and fees by more than $300 million, and voters responded by removing her from office,” said RGA communications director Mike Schrimpf. “Maggie Hassan’s tax-hiking record reveals more about the policies she’d pursue as governor than her election-year rhetoric. Thirty-three tax and fee increases make clear that Maggie Hassan believes in high taxes.”
