Key messages

  • Bolduc's campaign website said, "DC is broken and just isn’t getting the job done for New Hampshire. I won’t let special interests or partisan politics get in the way of my new mission, serving as your United States Senator."

  • "I am the only candidate running that was on the ground fighting terrorists on behalf of this president and fulfilling his policies and doing the right thing. I will do the same for you. We want a different America, then we need to change who we send to Washington, D.C., and why we send them there. I've taken quite a few hills in my career. Next hill I'm taking: Capitol Hill, baby."
