FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 4, 2020
“I am humbled and grateful for the support I’ve received over this campaign. Traveling the state for the past 14 months, I have been inspired by my fellow Granite Staters, who faced incredible challenges these last few months and have shown great resilience and courage.
“This campaign has been an amazing journey, and I am grateful for the experience. And now, we must come together to meet the many challenges we face. We need to restore our economy, address the issues that divide us, and ensure that we emerge from this pandemic stronger as a nation and as a people. I will continue to be involved in Republican politics and will work to preserve our individual liberty and economic freedom.”
