BEDFORD, NH – Campaign senior advisor Michael Biundo has announced that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner will file a Declaration of Candidacy next week in person while adhering to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines and foregoing the usual State House rally.
The Wolfeboro Republican will be met outside the State House in Concord by election officials from the Office of the Secretary of State, says Biundo. The event will be broadcast live via Facebook, he adds.
Messner, a successful businessman, proud veteran, conservative and political outsider seeking to unseat incumbent Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen, states:
“I am looking forward to officially kicking off our campaign. As I have been saying for months now, I am running to return our country to the freedoms and liberty upon which our nation was founded, and the ‘Live Free or Die’ spirit upon which our state was built. Granite Staters deserve a Senator who truly reflects their values and concerns.
“I am committed to fiscal responsibility and personal freedoms, and I will work with President Trump and Governor Sununu to unburden our small businesses, help spur economic opportunity, safeguard our security as a nation, and restore our belief in the American Dream.”
