#NHSEN DEBATE KEY MOMENTS: Morse Doubles Down on a Nationwide Abortion Ban
During the final Republican Senate debate hosted by WMUR, the B-tier candidates made clear just how extreme they are. Chuck Morse admitted that he supported a national abortion ban. Kevin Smith attacked Don Bolduc for being open to abolishing the FBI, and then Bolduc doubled down on his call to defund the Department of Homeland Security.
