Buckley's Statement on Upcoming Democratic Debate

This message is from the Chairman of the New Hampshire Democrats, Ray Buckley:

"We are proud to welcome such a qualified field of candidates to Dartmouth for what promises to be an exciting evening. New Hampshire is home to the First-In-The-Nation Primary and an important stop on the road to the White House. Every four years, we are honored to open our doors, literally, to the nation's presidential candidates. At a time when people are experiencing a greater distance from the political process, New Hampshire continues to demand that candidates interact at the most local level possible. Granite Staters expect that they will meet political leaders at coffee shops, town hall style meetings, house parties in their living room or at their door on a neighborhood canvass.

"This is an exciting time for New Hampshire Democrats as we head into the 2008 Election. Governor John Lynch and our Democratic Majorities have delivered on their promises to enact policies that improve the lives of working people. In Washington, New Hampshire has never had a better team in the United States House of Representatives than Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter and Congressman Paul Hodes.

"I'm so proud of all of our Presidential candidates as they travel the Granite State listening to our concerns and offering real leadership for the citizens of our country. My hope is that by working together, we can maintain our 2006 victories, carry the state for our presidential nominee and replace John E. Sununu with a senator who will fight for our priorities."
