Lynch endorses Hassan for governor
CONCORD - If the people of New Hampshire want to continue the progress made during the past eight years, Gov. John Lynch said they should vote for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Maggie Hassan.
In the crowded lobby of Concord City Auditorium, Lynch touted a bipartisan approach to solving the state's problems that he said he knows from experience Hassan will continue.
Lynch said Hassan would continue his work to improve education, retrain workers, balance the budget while preserving essential state services, and increase health insurance coverage for all state residents.
Hassan told about 150 supporters, 'I'm so proud to have your support in this campaign to keep moving New Hampshire forward. Gov. Lynch is a role model.'
She said Lynch has been able to put partisan politics aside to do what is best for the state, and she said he always puts the people of New Hampshire first.
Hassan said the election will decide if the state will continue to move forward as it has under Lynch or go backward with she called the radical agenda of Republican gubernatorial nominee Ovide Lamontagne and House Speaker William O'Brien.
