Manchester Ink Link: NHDP Launches “MitchStakes” Initiative



In case you missed it, the Manchester Ink Link reported on the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s new “MitchStakes” project that will highlight how all three Republican US Senate candidates are competing for Mitch McConnell’s support — by selling out New Hampshire to McConnell and his corporate special interest backers.


Manchester Ink Link: NHDP Launches “MitchStakes” Initiative


By Andrew Slyvia


While former U.S. President Donald Trump is still the head of the Republican Party in the eyes of many, he won’t be on the ballot in 2022, unlike races that could determine control of the U.S. Senate like the one here in New Hampshire. With that fact in mind, the New Hampshire Democratic Party is launching what it’s calling “MitchStakes.”


The project attempts to show the connection between U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and three New Hampshire GOP Senate candidates: New Hampshire Senate President Chuck Morse, former U.S. General Don Bolduc and Londonderry Town Manager Kevin Smith.


“Chuck Morse, Kevin Smith, and Don Bolduc would each be reliable ‘yes’ votes for the McConnell agenda, but only one of them can win the ‘MitchStakes’ in September,” said NHDP Chair Ray Buckley. “Over the next seven months, they will have to battle it out to see who is the most anti-choice, pro-corporate special interest Republican willing to sell out Granite Staters and secure the grand prize — the support of Mitch McConnell and his Big Pharma, Big Oil corporate special interests. No matter who emerges as the victor in the ‘MitchStakes,’ Mitch McConnell and corporate special interests will win, and Granite Staters will lose.”


The “MitchStakes” project will span over the next seven months through the New Hampshire primary on September 13 and will feature various digital, communications, and organizing tools to show how the Republican Senate candidates are running to see who will be the biggest sellout to Mitch McConnell and his corporate special interests, even if it means selling out Granite Staters.
