Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley released the following statement in response to the election of Chris Ager as RNC Committeeman for New Hampshire over long-time Committeeman Steve Duprey.
“New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary is sacred, and I look forward to working with Committeeman Ager to protect it. That being said, today’s upset victory sends a clear message that the New Hampshire Republican Party is a party of right-wing extremists, voting out their long-time leader because of his support for abortion rights, even after Governor Sununu and the entire Republican establishment lined up behind him.
This is a stunning rebuke of Sununu, who has campaigned tirelessly for Duprey over the past few weeks, and we look forward to seeing him and his party continue to embrace radical, anti-women positions that will make them lose even bigger in November.”
