NHDP Headquarters Reopened, Suspicious Package Deemed Non-Threatening
Concord, N.H. - Today, authorities determined the suspicious package delivered to the New Hampshire Democratic Party headquarters yesterday afternoon was ultimately non-threatening and the office has been reopened. Following the discovery of the package, the building was evacuated and two staffers were evaluated as a precautionary measure. NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement: "Our immense thanks goes out to the Concord Police Department, the Concord Fire Department, and the New Hampshire State Police, whose swift and thorough response was a comfort to all NHDP staff members. "While we are relieved the package did not pose a direct threat to our staff members, it served as an important reminder that the toxic and hateful words spewed in our current political environment have ramifications far beyond scoring political points. Working to support members of the Democratic Party should never come with a fear of attack and steps must be made to make our political discourse more tolerant and civil. Many thanks to all who reached out with support during the last 24 hours, it is deeply appreciated."
