BEDFORD, NH – Former New Hampshire State Representative and Manchester mayoral candidate Victoria Sullivan has announced her endorsement of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner.

“When I was running for Mayor of Manchester, Bryant ‘Corky’ Messner took a personal interest in what was happening in this city. The challenges we face in the Queen City are tough ones, but he never hesitated in joining me during difficult conversations with the homeless and those who have suffered from addiction.

“Politics is too often about the status quo and gamesmanship, but with Corky Messner, it is the complete opposite of that. The time he has dedicated to understanding the struggles of the people of Manchester has proven to me that he is in this race for the right reasons. He truly cares about our state and its people. The career politicians have failed us in Washington and in these times more than ever, we need men and women to step up and fight for us. I believe Bryant ‘Corky’ Messner will do just that, which is why I am proud to endorse him in this race.”

“Victoria’s support is important to me, we share a passion for helping people and we both believe Granite Staters are demanding a change,” says Messner. “It’s time their elected representatives reflect their beliefs and values, and I thank Victoria for supporting my efforts to become New Hampshire’s U.S. Senator.”
