CONCORD, NH – Yesterday, WMUR reported that Illinois Governor JB Pritzker will join the New Hampshire Democratic Party as the keynote speaker for the annual state convention on June 18, 2022.
“I am thrilled to join Democrats in the Granite State for their annual state convention and look forward to addressing their members ahead of one of the most critical midterm elections of our lifetimes,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “I’m proud to be supporting pro-choice candidates like Maggie Hassan and the next governor of New Hampshire, Dr. Tom Sherman, as well as Annie Kuster, Chris Pappas, and state and local candidates from the North Country to the Seacoast. From Illinois to New Hampshire, it’s never been more important to elect Democrats up and down the ballot and I know New Hampshire Democrats are ready for the fight!”
“Governor Pritzker is a fierce champion for Illinois families and I am grateful that he is coming to New Hampshire to help elect Democrats up and down the ballot,” said Senator Maggie Hassan. “From protecting a woman’s fundamental freedom to building a more inclusive economy, Governor Pritzker has been an effective leader for Illinois and I cannot wait to welcome him to New Hampshire.”
“I’m excited to welcome Governor Pritzker, a champion for lowering costs for American families. Governor Pritzker has been a leader in codifying women's rights to make their own healthcare decisions, expanding investments in renewable energy, and supporting workers. We’re lucky to have him joining us,” said Dr. Tom Sherman.
“We’re thrilled to have Governor Pritzker heading to the Granite State for this momentous occasion, and are so thankful for his continued support in electing Democrats all over New Hampshire,” said NHDP Chair Ray Buckley. “This year, we need all hands on deck to elect Democrats who are going to protect reproductive health care, public education, and fight to lower costs for Granite Staters.”
