FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 4, 2019


WOLFEBORO, NH – Today, Bryant “Corky” Messner of Wolfeboro formally announced the launch of his campaign to challenge Jeanne Shaheen for the United States Senate, ending a several month exploratory period.

The launch features a two-minute video, hosted on the campaign website

“I am running for United States Senate to protect the American Dream by standing up to the far-left policies of career politicians like Jeanne Shaheen. New Hampshire deserves a United States Senator who shares our values and puts our people before their own political aspirations. In the Senate I will support President Trump’s conservative policies, fight back against the Democrats’ growing socialist agenda, and unify the Republican Party here in New Hampshire. I am grateful for and humbled by the warm reception I’ve received these past few months, and excited for the campaign ahead,” said Messner.

The campaign will operate as Corky Messner for U.S. Senate, a federally registered campaign committee.
