Oct. 16

From The Chairman's Desk



If you ever need to be reminded of exactly why we need another Democrat in the White House, just compare the Democratic and Republican primary debates.

While the clown car that is the GOP field of candidates displayed nothing but attacks on the working class and women’s health, our Democratic candidates discussed policy issues in a substantive way to keep our country moving forward.

The Democratic candidates laid out exactly what’s at stake this election, and they clearly outlined their visions to continue to grow the middle class, make college more affordable, and protect Social Security for future generations. There's only one party that is serious about reforming our broken immigration system and confronting the real threats that climate change poses. The fact is, the Democrats are focused on the future, while the Republicans continue to echo the failed policies of the past.

I’m proud that the bar for political discourse was set so high by our candidates at the debate, and it is clear to those that watched the Democratic debate this week that our future President was on that stage!

Have a great weekend,

Raymond Buckley, Chair
New Hampshire Democratic Party
