Shaheen Files For Re-election, Defends Affordable Care Act
Senator Jeanne Shaheen stopped by the statehouse Monday to officially file her candidacy. A large crowd of supporters including union members from the Professional Fire Fighters Of New Hampshire cheered on the first-term Democrat.
Shaheen laid out her priorities and defended the Affordable Care Act, which is likely to be a key issue this November.
"Now, are there things that need to be fixed about this law? Sure," says Shaheen. "That’s what I’ve said from the very beginning I’ve been working on this. But the critics want to repeal it, and they don’t have anything to replace it."
Several Republicans are in a primary battle to take on Shaheen, including former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, former State Senator Jim Rubens, former U.S. Senator Bob Smith and conservative activist Karen Testerman.
