BEDFORD, NH – Citizens United has endorsed Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner.

“With (Corky Messner) on the ticket, @realDonaldTrump will have a great team to help carry New Hampshire this November and retire (Senator Jeanne Shaheen),” tweets Citizens United President David Bossie, who served as President Trump’s 2016 deputy campaign manager.

The Wolfeboro Republican also received an endorsement from the Citizens United Political Victory Fund, which tweets , “It’s time to retire liberal career politician Jeanne Shaheen…Proud to endorse Corky Messner for Senate to advance the Trump agenda and defend liberty!”

“I’m thrilled to have the support of staunch conservative and Trump campaign veteran David Bossie. Like Citizens United, I believe our rights as Americans are inalienable, and I will stay vigilant in the fight to defend them,” says Messner.

“This endorsement sends a strong message that Corky Messner is a true conservative, someone who reflects the views and the values of Granite Staters,” says Messner campaign co-chair Fred Doucette, who co-chaired President Trump’s New Hampshire presidential campaign in 2016 and co-chairs his 2020 campaign. “Corky Messner, Governor Chris Sununu, and President Trump will help New Hampshire return to its conservative roots this November.”

Citizens United is a conservative political advocacy group that gained notoriety for the landmark 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision (Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission) that the free speech clause of the First Amendment prohibits the government from preventing freed labor unions and corporations from spending money on electioneering communications and directly supporting or opposing candidates.
