CONCORD, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding Senator Sanders' call for felons & terrorists to have voting rights:

“Does Senator Shaheen and the rest of our federal delegation agree with New Hampshire Democrat FITN Primary frontrunner Bernie Sanders that felons and terrorists deserve the right to vote? What we saw at Bernie Sanders’ CNN Town Hall was an unforgivable statement. Will Senator Shaheen, Senator Hassan, Congresswoman Kuster, or Congressman Pappas say anything regarding Bernie Sanders’ desire to have Pam Smart and Seth Mazzaglia casting votes in decisive New Hampshire elections? The right to vote is a privilege maintained by practicing good citizenship and not committing horrific acts or terrorism; the citizens of New Hampshire deserve to have answers from our Democrat Federal Delegation on this left-of-Left proposal from the leader of the Democrat Primary pack.”
