Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding former Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee Bill Weld:
"The Republican Party is a big tent, but someone who endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 and supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 as the Libertarian Party’s Vice Presidential nominee really needs to think about how welcome he is in the Republican Party."
"Bill Weld declared he would be a “Libertarian for life” at the 2016 Libertarian national convention, and within three years he’s switched back to being a Republican to run against our President. In 2016, he also bragged about giving Hillary Clinton a win in New Hampshire - I don’t expect his campaign to get very far among Republican primary voters."
