American Bridge 21st Century Statement on New Hampshire Republican U.S. Senate Primary Results

Sep 14, 2022

American Bridge 21st Century released the following statement on Don Bolduc winning the New Hampshire Republican U.S. Senate primary despite Mitch McConnell and the GOP establishment’s wishes:

“When he isn’t pushing conspiracy theories, Don Bolduc is campaigning on cutting Social Security and Medicare, attacking people’s reproductive rights, and abolishing the FBI. It’s clear Don Bolduc couldn’t be more wrong for the people of New Hampshire, which is why voters will reject him come November,” said American Bridge 21st Century spokesperson Sarah Abel.

During the course of his primary campaign, “top Republicans fear[ed] a Bolduc win would all but eliminate their chances to win a state they once viewed as ripe for the flipping.”

  • New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said Bolduc is “not a serious candidate, he’s really not, and if he were the GOP nominee I have no doubt we would have a much harder time.” 

  • Texas Senator John Cornyn called Bolduc “not our best nominee” and “it would be a shame to nominate somebody who can’t win in the general election, I’m afraid that would be the case for the leading candidate right now.”

  • A Super PAC with ties to Mitch McConnell launched a multi-million dollar ad campaign aimed at stopping Bolduc from being successful. 

And here’s why: when it comes to the issues, Bolduc couldn’t be more wrong for the Granite State’s workers and families:

  • Bolduc is an anti-abortion extremist: 

    • Bolduc cheered the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, saying the Court made the “right call” and that the decision was “great.” 

    • Bolduc has endorsed legislation that could send doctors to prison for providing legal, medically necessary abortions.

  • Bolduc has called to cut trillions for Social Security and Medicare

  • Bolduc said he would be a “hell no” on legislation that lowers the costs of prescription drugs and caps insulin costs. 

  • Bolduc called for “new people in Congress” to help Trump repeal the Affordable Care Act. 

  • Bolduc tweeted that he is a “hell no” on CHIPS+, legislation that will lower costs for working families and strengthen the supply chain. 

Finally, to quote New Hampshire Gov. Sununu, Bolduc is a “conspiracy theorist-type candidate”  

  • Bolduc has continuously pushed Trump’s Big Lie and has gone as far to say that he will not certify elections if he is in the Senate. 

  • Bolduc has called for the abolishment of law enforcement agencies like the FBI

  • Bolduc called for repealing the 17th Amendment, which allows the direct election of U.S. Senators
