BEDFORD, NH – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Corky Messner released the following statement on the acquittal of President Donald J Trump.
“I am glad that we have finally turned the page on this chapter in history. As President Trump talked last night for 90 minutes during the State of the Union, he painted a vision of prosperity for the future and updated America on the vast accomplishments he has achieved. These accomplishments happened in a swirl of political theater and posturing, mind you. I am not a career politician like Senator Shaheen. I am a veteran, an entrepreneur, and a conservative. I’ve followed this process closely and based upon my legal analysis of the Constitution and the facts, I would have voted not to remove. I would have stood up against this highly political impeachment process, and as the Senator from New Hampshire, I will stand up to the socialist forces that control Jeanne Shaheen and her party.”
