Bedford, N.H. – New Hampshire Republican U.S. Senate nominee Bryant “Corky” Messner released the following statement on the 9/11 anniversary:

“Today is a somber day, one that commemorates a horrific event in our nation’s history. As we pause to reflect on the loss of life, grieve with the families who mourn their loved ones, and honor the selfless first responders who gave their lives saving others, we stand strong and united as Americans. The senseless acts of terrorism that occurred Sept. 11, 2001, changed our lives forever, but we will continue to move forward and celebrate this nation’s values of liberty and freedom.”
