New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley has released on a statement on the news that former U.S. Rep. Jeb Bradley (R-NH) will run in the special election for senate District 3.
Former New Hampshire Republican Chairman Fergus Cullen has decided that he will not run for the seat and former state Sen. Joe Kenney (R-Wakefield) announced that he is being deployed to Afghanistan next week.
Bradley will be running against Bud Martin (D-Sandwich), who ran unsuccessfully for the seat in November. The District 3 seat became vacant when Bill Denley (R-Wakefield) resigned after being charged with a DWI two weeks ago.
"Jeb Bradley is not fooling anyone. In November, the voters of District 3 once again rejected his candidacy for public office. I am convinced they will do the same this time as well.
"The voters of District 3 know that while in Washington, Jeb was among the biggest enablers of George W Bush's failed economic policies. He has voted for record deficits and drunken-sailor spending. He is the reason we are in this financial mess.
"The people of District 3 know they can't afford Jeb Bradley in the state senate. They need someone who will work to find real solutions to the serious economic problems we are facing. Jeb has a well-known record of putting politics before the people he represents.
