In the lead up to the election on November 8th, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire reached out to the campaigns of General Don Bolduc and Senator Maggie Hassan, in the race for the U.S. Senate seat in New Hampshire, to gain insights into their thinking on the following question:
"What is your current stance on financial and military support for the government of Ukraine in its war against Russia?"
This is a critical global issue and voters should understand where the candidates stand to ensure their vote matches their values. WACNH does not take a stance on issues, policies, candidates, or elections. This information is provided solely on an informational basis.
Sen. Maggie Hassan:
"Vladimir Putin’s unprovoked war on a sovereign nation is unconscionable, and represents a threat to freedom-loving people around the globe. Ukrainians have demonstrated incredible courage and bravery in the face of this assault, and the United States must continue to support Ukraine and stand up to Putin, including through severe sanctions and military and economic assistance to Ukraine.
Our support for Ukraine has been strongly bipartisan -- and we know that autocrats around the world are watching what we do here. China is watching, Iran is watching, and North Korea is watching. Democracy is being tested and Granite Staters know that democracy and freedom are worth fighting for."
General Don Bolduc:
WACNH has not received a statement from Gen. Bolduc at the time of posting. We will update this section if the campaign provides one.
