NHDP Statement on Mike Pence’s Trip to New Hampshire

CONCORD, NH — Ahead of Mike Pence’s first trip to New Hampshire as a presidential candidate today, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:

“Mike Pence has made it clear that he’s running to take the disastrous Trump-Pence MAGA agenda even further and his candidacy is already pushing the extreme field of candidates even further to the right. From paving the way for a national abortion ban to overseeing the worst jobs record since the Great Depression, the Trump-Pence administration repeatedly failed Granite Staters for four straight years.

“When voters hear from Mike Pence today, they’ll remember how terrible the MAGA agenda was for New Hampshire and reject him again.” Here’s the rundown on Mike Pence’s MAGA 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 is campaigning on a 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.
