From The Chairman's Desk

Democrats-- Are you as fired-up and ready to go as I am for tomorrow's Annual State Party Convention?  Tomorrow in Manchester, over 500 delegates from every corner of New Hampshire will join elected officials and party officers to approve our Party Platform and prepare for the upcoming election season.  Delegates have the opportunity to engage in training and breakout sessions to further their skills as Democratic activists. I strongly urge every single delegate to take part in at least one of the many training workshops hosted by our expert Democratic operatives. This promises to be an amazing event and I look forward to seeing you there. 

On the eve of the Convention, as we move into the election season, now is as good a time as any to look back and take stock of what Granite State Democrats have accomplished already this year.  New Hampshire Democrats are ready to win and win big in November.  We are organized and motivated to re-elect our wonderful incumbents and take back the State Senate.  By contrast our opponents at the NHGOP have started 2014 with a series of disasters and missteps—not a good harbinger for them for the fall.  To recap our counterparts' numerous foibles so far this year our team has put together a “NHGOP’s Not Top 10 Plays Of The Past Year” BuzzFeed listical for your enjoyment and as a reminder of why victory in the fall is so critically important for New Hampshire.

Hedging votes

To the Editor:

In just a couple of days we have learned that: Scott Brown received $1.3 Million for “advising” a Florida company who’s sole business seems to be manipulating its own stock and selling it to unwary investors; and, Scott Brown received an undisclosed amount of money for speaking to a hedge fund managers convention. It sure sounds like Scott Brown will be way too busy representing other interests to represent ordinary NH citizens.. Take hedge fund managers who paid Brown this “undisclosed” fee. They are some of the richest people in the country. In fact they managed to buy enough congressmen and senators to have special legislation passed that bogusly counts their income as if it were capital gains — top tax rate 15%, compared to the 39.6% they should have been paying — that is if they were regular peons like the rest of us. What’s the difference? Well, Forbes Magazine states that the top 25 hedge fund managers earned a total of $24.3 billion last year. If they were taxed at the normal rate, they would have paid $ 9.6 Billion. Instead, they paid $3.6 Billion. You try getting away with paying about a third of what you owe! No, I think hedge fund managers have enough representation in Congress, they, and we, don’t need Scott Brown.

This week I officially filed my candidacy for re-election to keep making a difference for Granite Staters in the U.S. Senate. I was so happy to be joined at the State House, where I served as a state senator and governor – by my family, friends and hundreds of supporters. I know I saw many of you there, and I wanted to thank you for holding signs, cheering me on and standing with me as we all took this important step in the campaign.

Tomorrow, I'm excited to be at the New Hampshire Democratic Party State Convention at Manchester Memorial High School to speak with Democrats from all across New Hampshire about how we build a team that will lead to success in November. I know the only way for us to be successful is to work together. I hope to see many of you there.

On Monday, we launched our new Instagram account, and as always, you can get up-to-the minute campaign news, photos, video and more by following #TeamShaheen on Facebook and TwitterYoutube, our website.

-Senator Jeanne Shaheen


This week, Governor Hassan was joined by dozens of supporters as she officially filed for re-election to continue fighting for middle class opportunity and keep our state moving in the right direction. Check out Governor Hassan's Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/maggiehassanforgovernor) for photos of the incredible scene at the State House and thanks to all who came out - the energy was incredible!

The Governor also signed a buffer zone law this week to ensure that women can access critical health services without fearing for their safety, while also protecting the rights of free speech and privacy. 

“A woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions is essential to the economic health of our families, and I thank Senator Soucy, legislators from both parties and other advocates for their efforts to pass this important legislation, as well as law enforcement and municipal officials for their input to narrowly tailor the bill to protect the rights of Granite Staters," said Governor Hassan.
