Statement from NH GOP Chair Jeanie Forrester on New Hampshire Democrats shutting out Press at Maxine Waters event
CONCORD – NH GOP Chair Jeanie Forrester is calling the New Hampshire Democrats out for hypocrisy regarding shutting out the New Hampshire press corps minutes before the Maxine Waters event. New Hampshire Democrats are trying to hide the connections between their flawed campaigns and potential 2020 FITN Primary candidates.

“Today, just minutes before the Democratic fundraiser with Liberal Congresswoman Maxine Waters, members of the press were notified the event would be closed, with no explanation as to why the change took place. Are New Hampshire Democrats so ashamed and embarrassed by the potential of a Maxine Waters 2020 campaign for President that they would block the press at her first New Hampshire event?”

“The Hillary Clinton for President campaign had a similar anti-press approach when in New Hampshire, utilizing ropes and other barriers between New Hampshire journalists and candidate Clinton. Does Maxine Waters intend to run a similar campaign?”

“Carol Shea-Porter must be ashamed to be seen standing next to looney Maxine Waters. NH Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley once said that holding closed press events supports “secrecy rather than transparency.” New Hampshire Democrats are no doubt trying to minimize the negative impact Maxine Waters’ appearance in New Hampshire will have on confused Kevin Cavanaugh’s campaign.”
