Bedford, NH – U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner today released the following statement regarding this morning’s press event with New Hampshire U.S. Senators Shaheen, Hassan and New Hampshire law enforcement:

“This event is yet another stunt by Senator Shaheen to distract from her failure to lead on behalf of Granite Staters. In New Hampshire, she says she supports law enforcement. In Washington, D.C., she refuses to condemn the ‘defund the police’ movement. In New Hampshire, Senator Shaheen says she opposes riots and violent mobs. In D.C., she refuses to condemn her own party for enabling them. She has been silent on the unrest in our nation, and that’s the reason she doesn’t have the support of law enforcement groups like the New England Police Benevolent Association. No sham events and political talking points can change that.”
