US SENATOR SHAHEEN PUTS THUMB ON SCALE IN NH CD-01 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY RACE

PORTSMOUTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE: Representative and CD-1 Candidate Messmer (District 24) released the following statement today:

I received a call at approximately 1:15 pm today, August 3, 2018, from Senator Shaheen stating that she would be endorsing another candidate in the Democratic primary. It is unfortunate that the establishment party thinks it’s necessary to get involved in the middle of a democratic primary process. It seems that the party has not learned anything from 2016 which resulted in Donald Trump’s election to the presidency. This signals that the party thinks their insider candidate is not capable of winning on his own merits. His legislative record shows he never initiated a bill in four years and cosponsored two which were not passed.

Working with Republicans, I have personally written and cosponsored 15 important pieces of legislation in two years that have been signed into law focused on; clean water, cancer and chronic disease prevention, transgender non-discrimination, government transparency, healthcare issues, elderly abuse prevention, protecting the mentally ill and parental financial protection.

I will continue to focus on getting the word out about my grassroots campaign that is not taking ANY PAC, lobbyist or special interest money with 90% in-state contributions, unlike the candidate the party establishment is supporting. For more information, go to our website at www.mindiforcongress.com.
