Morse Took His Risk Board and Went Home
For the second time in a week, U.S. Senate candidate Chuck Morse dodged a public event where he was supposed to face voters and answer questions about national security and foreign policy ahead of the September primary. Morse was scheduled to attend an event hosted by the World Affairs Council on Friday, August 19th, but cancelled “due to a conflicting event.” The World Affairs Council invited both Republican and Democratic candidates in the primary elections for the U.S. Senate to discuss their views on U.S. foreign policy. According to the World Affairs Council’s website, this was voters' “opportunity to hear from, and ask questions of, Chuck Morse about his foreign policy platform and how he sees the U.S.' role in the world.” Chuck Morse’s decision to skip the World Affairs Council meeting is likely due to the fact that just months ago, he admitted he didn’t understand what was happening with the war in Ukraine and needed to play the board game Risk with his friends in DC to begin to understand foreign policy. “Chuck Morse clearly skipped the World Affairs Council meeting because he didn’t feel that he was qualified to answer tough questions from voters about world affairs,” said NHDP spokesperson Gates MacPherson. “Hiding from voters only makes it more obvious that Morse is way out of his depth when it comes to discussing the issues that Granite Staters care about.” This is the second event in a week that Morse has missed. He was also a no-show at the Government Integrity Project Republican Senate debate on Sunday. Meanwhile, last week U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan delivered powerful remarks and answered audience questions at the World Affairs Council in Manchester, where she discussed her efforts to ensure that America remains safe, secure, and free. Senator Hassan discussed the importance of combating the threat that authoritarian regimes, including China and Russia, pose to the United States and democracies around the world.
