Concord, N.H. - After months of attacking his GOP primary opponents in the shadows, Bill O'Brien finally announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire today. NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement: "New Hampshire voters remember Bill O'Brien was a mirror image of Donald Trump before Trump ever ran for President. In office, they both made sabotaging the Affordable Care Act, defunding Planned Parenthood, and undermining voting rights their top priorities." "This primary will be nasty, but if there are two things Bill O'Brien is capable of, it's throwing a political punch and supporting everything Trump does. With yet another candidate joining the fray, this primary is only getting more intense by the day."
