NHGOP STATEMENT ON DEMOCRATS DROPPING WMUR AS DEBATE SPONSOR

Concord – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding WMUR being dropped as a sponsor of the New Hampshire Democrat presidential debate:

“For decades, WMUR has established itself as a trusted news source that has made an important impact on New Hampshire that extends well beyond its news broadcasts. The station has sponsored some of New Hampshire’s most important political debates and WMUR Political Director Josh McElveen has served as a fair and effective moderator. It is unfortunate that Hillary Clinton and her Democrat Party allies would try to impugn the integrity of this respected news organization by forcing WMUR out as a debate sponsor. This petty attack on New Hampshire’s largest television station threatens the traditions of our First-in-the-Nation primary and Governor Hassan should immediately denounce this outrageous behavior.”
