Bedford, NH – U.S. Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner today released the following statement regarding Democrat Vice Presidential Nominee Senator Kamala Harris’ refusal to say during last night’s VP debate whether or not she and running mate Joe Biden support packing the Supreme Court with additional justices.

“Senator Kamala Harris once again proved what we already knew: a Biden/Harris administration, if elected, plans to pack the courts and tip the scales of justice to the progressive extreme agenda for years to come. Senator Jeanne Shaheen has proven repeatedly throughout her 30 years of political gamesmanship she has no problem saying one thing on the stump here in New Hampshire and then doing another when in office.

“I call on Senator Shaheen to show some leadership and denounce Senator Harris and Vice President Biden for their evasive and misleading tactics. We all know, however, that my calls will be ignored. Senator Shaheen has a vested interest in kowtowing to the extremes of her party. She votes with the Democratic leadership in Washington more than even Chuck Schumer himself. Sadly, independent leadership and looking out for Granite Staters have long been replaced with ambitions and her reelection plans.”
