Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding the Epping Special Election:
"Congratulations to Michael Vose n his victory tonight in Epping! New Hampshire Republicans are eager to get behind our candidate and do everything we can to secure victory in October. Michael’s agenda of lowering taxes, cutting regulations, and responsible budgeting stands in stark contrast with his Democrat opponent, Naomi Andrews. Naomi is a failed D.C. insider who is just looking for her next political move. After failing in her bid for Congress last year, Naomi wants to bring her D.C. values to the New Hampshire House - and we’re confident Epping voters will reject the D.C. Democrat agenda on October 8th."
Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding the Governor vetoing anti-Second Amendment pieces of legislation:
“Granite Staters thank Governor Sununu for vetoing legislation that would have infringed on their Second Amendment rights. House Bills 109, 514, 564, would have placed unnecessary burdens on New Hampshire citizens practicing their rights. New Hampshire is consistently ranked as one of the safest States in the nation, largely due to the fact that our Second Amendment and Article 2a rights are not infringed upon. While Democrats have played political gamesmanship with the timing of this legislation, make no mistake: Governor Sununu and Republicans in the legislature are holding the line for the people of New Hampshire, and we stand with our strong pro-Second Amendment community throughout the Granite State.”
Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding Governor Sununu vetoing the disastrous minimum wage hike:
“The minimum wage increase would have been disastrous for New Hampshire small businesses and employees; Governor Sununu was absolutely right in vetoing it. Increasing the cost of labor decreases the ability for low-skilled and entry level workers to a job where they can begin to develop their skills. We have a booming economy and a competitive labor force, and Granite State employers are looking everywhere for new employees to fill vacancies. Arguments made by Democrats that this mandated wage increase is necessary are made in bad faith; Governor Sununu and New Hampshire Republicans are fighting for a strong economy that truly works for everyone.”
