New Hampshire House Democrats Kneel During National Anthem
All House Republicans Stand for National Anthem to respect our Nation's Flag.
Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement after New Hampshire House Democrats disgracing our nation's flag by kneeling during our Nation Anthem:
"Democrats have performed a number of disgraceful stunts this legislative session, but yesterday's performance may rank highest among their insults to all patriotic Granite Staters," said Chairman Stepanek. "The people of New Hampshire expect their legislators to represent them with dignity and respect, not disdain. Our nation's flag and our National Anthem represents all those who have given their all in service to our nation; to disrespect it by kneeling is unbecoming of legislators in our nation's largest state legislative body."
A Sample of the New Hampshire Democrats who took a knee during our National Anthem at the September 16th House Session:
Rep. Catherine Sofikitis, D-Nashua
Rep. Nicole Klein-Knight, D-Manchester
Rep. Willis Griffith, D-Manchester
Rep. Timothy Horrigan, D-Durham
Rep. Lisa Bunker, D-Exeter
Rep. Kris Schultz, D-Concord
Concord, NH - As Dr. Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff visit New Hampshire on behalf of the Biden/Harris Campaign, NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding the complete absence of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris since our First-in-the-Nation primary:
“We are 48 days out from the election and Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have still not stepped foot in the Granite State since their disastrous First-in-the-Nation primary campaigns,” said NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek. “Visits from Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff aren’t going to cut it; this just shows that national Democrats running the Biden campaign don’t want to expose Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to New Hampshire voters. As the NHGOP & Trump Victory operations continues to out-organize New Hampshire Democrats on the heels of President Trump’s visit to New Hampshire just weeks ago, President Trump and Republicans up and down the ballot are well-positioned for a Granite State victory this November 3rd.”
Shaheen Plays Politics with COVID-19 Relief for Granite Staters
Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement today criticizing Senator Jeanne Shaheen for voting against the latest U.S. Senate COVID-19 relief bill, which among other provisions would provide hundreds of billions in relief for Americans and create liability protections for small businesses, schools, doctors and others seeking to reopen.
“Instead of voting for pragmatic, sensible relief for the people of New Hampshire, Jeanne Shaheen continues to put party over people,” said Stepanek. “Granite Staters want leadership and action, not a career politician who would rather play D.C. politics and votes with Democrat Majority Leader Chuck Schumer 91 percent of the time. Instead of being focused on tackling the economic and public health crises stemming from global pandemic and moving forward as a state and nation, Shaheen is playing politics with relief for families. With her vote last week, Shaheen made it clear that she cares more about states like Illinois and New York than she does about New Hampshire."
Sen. Shaheen Joined With Chuck Schumer And All Senate Democrats In Voting No On S. 178, The Delivering Immediate Relief To America's Families, Schools And Small Businesses Act. (SA 2652 To S. 178, Roll Cal Vote # 168, Yea-Nay 52-47, 9/10/20)
Since Sen. Shaheen Was First Elected To Congress, She Has Voted With Chuck Schumer 91 Percent Of The Time On Average.
