CONCORD - Today, NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek and NHGOP Vice-Chair Pamela Tucker released the following joint statement condemning State Representatives' foolish investigation request:

“Granite Staters elected Republican majorities to our state government in order to cut taxes, expand educational opportunity, and control spending. New Hampshire overwhelmingly approves of the job Governor Chris Sununu has done in mitigating the effects of COVID-19. The NHGOP has always and will continue to stand with Governor Sununu and his team as he fights for Granite Staters during this global pandemic. Talk of impeachment is a severe obfuscation of the reasons Granite Staters elected Republicans on November 3rd and these House members seeking headlines will look foolish when this effort falls flat before it even gets off the ground.”

Concord, NH - Today, New Hampshire GOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding dangerous rhetoric emanating from New Hampshire Democrat elected officials:

“New Hampshire Democrats have reached desperate and dangerous new lows. Fully knowing they are on the verge of an electoral collapse in New Hampshire, elected Democrat officials are now calling for the abolition of our United States and New Hampshire Constitutions for our nation and state to “start over”. This charged rhetoric has no place in our politics, and we fully expect and demand that Senator Shaheen, Congressman Pappas, Congresswoman Kuster, Senator Feltes, Senator Soucy, and Speaker Shurtleff immediately condemn Rep. Frosts’ dangerous, anti-American statement.”
