NHDP Statement on Mike Pence’s Trip to New Hampshire

CONCORD, NH — Ahead of Mike Pence’s stops in New Hampshire today and tomorrow, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:


“No amount of campaign stops can make Mike Pence’s extreme MAGA platform of doubling down on tax giveaways for the ultra-wealthy, cutting Social Security and Medicare, and banning abortion nationwide any more palatable to New Hampshire voters. Granite Staters rejected the Trump-Pence agenda twice and they’ll do it again.”

As you listen to Pence speak today, here’s a refresher on what you should know about his extreme record:

  • As Trump’s vice president, Pence helped oversee the worst jobs record since the Great Depression. He’s called to make permanent the Trump-Pence policies that provided tax giveaways to the wealthiest Americans and corporations while shipping American jobs overseas.

  • He backs cuts to Medicare and Social Security, which could impact thousands of Granite Staters who rely on these crucial programs to get health care and make ends meet.

  • Pence backs an extreme national abortion ban that outlaws abortion before many women know they're pregnant. The first Republican to call for a national abortion ban after Roe v Wade was overturned, Pence says the “greatest accomplishment” of the Trump-Pence administration was appointing the justices who voted to overturn Roe.

  • He’s also said abortion pills should be banned after calling on Congress to pass legislation that could pave the way to banning Plan B and some forms of birth control.

  • Pence led the Trump administration’s charge to repeal the Affordable Care Act – including its protections for people with preexisting conditions – calling it their “first order of business.”

  • In his naked chase for power, Pence campaigned alongside election-denying candidates in 2022, including failed New Hampshire Senate candidate Don Bolduc, who wanted to overturn the results of an election that 81 million Americans voted for.

  • As governor of Indiana, Pence signed one of the most discriminatory pieces of anti-LGBTQ legislation in the country. He has also railed against marriage equality throughout his career.
