On the heels of Don Bolduc callously telling Granite Staters to “get over” the prospect of a nationwide abortion ban following the overturning of Roe v. Wade, negative headlines continue to mount. His damaging comment trivializes the very real, life-threatening challenges women would face if a nationwide abortion ban were imposed. Not to mention his extreme, anti-choice agenda is clearly out of step with Granite Staters - 71 percent of whom support reproductive freedoms.
It’s no wonder Bolduc’s disparaging comment is being slammed as “one way not to pivot” which “complicates the party’s ‘send abortion back to the states’ narrative.” Even Republican operatives are plainly conceding: “It’s not a good soundbite.”
Check out the list of disastrous headlines that continue to pile up:

Bolduc has said that he would never vote against anti-choice legislation in the United States Senate and that New Hampshire’s abortion ban did not go far enough. And when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Don Bolduc said that Granite Staters should “rejoice.”
