NH BILLBOARD: Stayin’ Politically Alive Since 1975

Washington, D.C. –  The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) installed a new billboard this week along Hwy 293 in Manchester reminding voters how Jeanne Shaheen is another career politician who has abandoned Granite State values.

 

As the August congressional recess begins, New Hampshire voters will be reminded that Shaheen has been working in politics since the 1970s. Since then, she has embraced radical policies like Medicare for All, and has joined with the more liberal wing of the Democratic Party to push a socialist agenda.

 

 

BILLBOARD TEXT: Jeanne Shaheen: stayin’ politically alive since 1975!

 

“Shaheen is a career politician who has deserted Granite State values by wanting to take away employer-based health care while failing to get New Hampshire veterans the care they need,” said NRSC spokesperson Nathan Brand. “During those decades as a politician, Shaheen has abandoned the priorities and principles of New Hampshire voters, only to embrace the socialist agenda of the liberals in Washington.”
