Bolduc launches bid for party leadership

Republican U.S. Senate nominee Don Bolduc of Stratham announced Monday he would run to become vice chairman of the Republican State Committee.

Outside Republican groups have reportedly canceled millions in TV ads supporting Don Bolduc’s campaign, leaving Sen. Maggie Hassan with an even bigger advertising advantage.

On Friday, tracking firm AdImpact Politics reported that the Senate Leadership Fund, a political action committee aligned with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), had canceled more than $5 million in advertising reservations on Boston and Portland television stations that reach New Hampshire viewers.
