The Hill recently reported, “New Hampshire is the Senate battleground that offers Democrats perhaps their best chance of holding a seat.” But as more voters across the country turn toward the GOP, retired Army Brig. Gen. Don Bolduc is closing the margin of an expected Democratic victory in the Granite State.
In the 2020 Republican Senate primary, Bolduc carried almost 60,000 votes as the runner-up. According to a poll taken in April, only one point separated New Hampshire incumbent Sen. Maggie Hassan and Bolduc, one of 11 candidates for the Republican primary scheduled for Sept. 13.
Bolduc says he is very concerned about the future of America.
“Currently, there is a plan for top-down governance and the abandonment of America’s values and principles,” he told The Epoch Times, describing it as a plan to “undermine” America. He said “America is weak” at the moment, and there are a variety of issues it must continue to confront if the nation ever wants to recover its strength. These include, but are not limited to, abortion, gun control, the southern border, and the economy.
On the issue of abortion in America, Bolduc said, “the Supreme Court made the right decision by sending it back to the states.” Regardless of which side of the issue women find themselves, he said, “[they] have more control at the state level than they would ever have at the federal level.”
As a pro-life candidate, he considers the narrative that many on the left are pushing to be “very dangerous.” While President Joe Biden calls upon “pro-choice senators and a pro-choice House to codify Roe as federal law,” Hassan and colleagues are urging the president to “defend Americans’ rights to abortion” by executive order. In a recent 30-second television ad, she also said she would “fight and never back down” to protect the “personal freedoms” of women seeking an abortion.
