Bedford, NH – U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner has been endorsed by the largest, all exclusive law enforcement labor union in New England, which cites his “pro-police stance.”

The New England Police Benevolent Association, also the largest law enforcement labor union in the state of New Hampshire, is supporting the Wolfeboro Republican’s run to unseat Democrat Jeanne Shaheen.

“I am honored to receive this endorsement, and I join all Granite Staters in supporting and defending our police,” says Messner. “Those in uniform keep our cities and towns safe, while putting their lives on the line every day. Their service, bravery, and dedication are truly remarkable, especially given recent efforts to denigrate this honorable profession.”

“On behalf of the New England PBA, it is our distinct pleasure and honor to support your candidacy for U.S. Senate,” reads the letter to Messner from the organization’s Executive Director Jerry Flynn, President Chris Ryan, and N.H. State Director/Legislative Director Stephen Arnold, Sr.

“As you are well aware, hardworking and dedicated police officers across this great country are targets of assassination, vilified by the media, ridiculed by athletes and pundits, ostracized by the general public because of the false narrative glorified by the far left of the Democratic Party.”

They continue: “In fact, your Democratic opponent in this race, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, has taken a different approach to advocate against decent, dedicated and hardworking police officers in an attempt to feed that same false narrative as Senator Chuck Schumer and the far left of the Democratic Party. Yet, she apparently has forgotten about Manchester Police Officer Michael Briggs, who was shot and killed in the line of duty, as he patrolled and protected the streets and the business interests of the people of New Hampshire.

“As a result of your unrelenting and pro-police stance regarding our membership and our brethren in the Granite State, we wholeheartedly support your candidacy for U.S. Senate in the State of New Hampshire.”
