Victorious Hassan Continues With Retail Politics
Following her victory in the Democratic gubernatorial primary Tuesday night, State Senator Maggie Hassan greeted voters at Manchester’s Red Arrow Diner on Wednesday.
It was a slow morning as Senator Hassan met with a half dozen or so patrons at the Red Arrow Diner in Manchester. Hassan told reporters her campaign will be aggressive in stepping up fundraising.
“We’ve had a great outpouring of support in this state yesterday and today already and we’ll work as hard as we can to have the resources we need to compete.”
Hassan starts the general elections at a financial disadvantage compared to her Republican opponent, Ovide Lamontange. Hassan and Democrats are characterizing Lamontange as a potential rubber-stamp to what she calls extreme Tea Party legislators if he wins the corner office.
Meanwhile, Republicans say Senator Hassan will increase spending and grow the size of government if elected.
