Former Vice President Mike Pence returned to New Hampshire Wednesday night to headline a fundraiser for former Army General Don Bolduc.

Bolduc will face former governor and first-term Democratic Senator Maggie Hassan in November’s midterm elections in a Senate election that will determine whether Republicans regain control of the House.

“I’m here for one reason only. Fifty-four days from today, I need to retire Maggie Hassan.” Wilton, New Hampshire. “If New Hampshire and America ever needed to send a proven conservative leader to the United States Senate, it is now. If there was ever a time for General Don Bolduc in the United States Senate, it is now.”

Bolduc has run for the Senate for the second time in a row, has embraced much of former President Donald Trump’s agenda, and is running as an outsider and populist. He narrowly beaten his arch-rival, longtime New Hampshire Senate Speaker Chuck Morse, in a crowded and flammable field of candidates in an increasingly divided preliminaries. .

Bolduc gave New Hampshire conservatives a lot of red meat, but some Republicans in the state and nationally said Hassan was re-elected after a primary win by a retired general struggling badly to raise money. Two weeks ago, a newly formed super PAC, dubbed the White Mountain PAC, was loosely linked to the political trajectory of longtime Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell. It did, but spent about $4 million to run a TV commercial in New Hampshire denouncing Bolduc’s “crazy ideas.”

Both Pence and Bolduc urged party unity with their remarks at the fundraiser.

“Now is the time for us to come together, come together as a party in New Hampshire, come together as a party across this country, and do what must be done. And tell us that we know we will.” I’m here to do it,” said Pence. “Sometimes people worry about divisions within the party. Earlier this week when I was in Wisconsin, I was asked about it. What are you going to do to bring the Republican party together? I think there are four solutions. I said yes – Chuck, Nancy, Joe, Kamala.”

With two of his main rivals sitting in the audience, Bolduc tried to make amends.

“The campaign is tough. That’s not always the case…and I’m “no different,” lamented Bolduc. “I’m a mistaken man. A man who makes mistakes. A man who says things that probably shouldn’t be said.”

And he emphasized: To get forgiveness.Ask people for forgiveness.And we have to move forward.I can’t do this alone.I need your help.

Hillsboro County GOP Chair Chris Ager, one of two New Hampshire members of the Republican National Committee, emphasized:voted for him [Bolduc], but has already contributed to him. The fact that we can all come together is a great sign of progress. “

Ager, who helped organize the fundraiser, added, “I think it’s an important message that Republicans are coming together to win New Hampshire in November.”

In both of his Senate campaigns, fundraising has never been Bolduc’s forte. As of August 24th, he was poor $84,000 cash on hand with his campaign funds. A source involved in Wednesday night’s fundraiser told Fox News that six figures were collected at the rally.

On January 6, 2021, Pence launched a campaign of right-wing extremists and other Trump supporters into the U.S. Capitol aimed at disrupting congressional recognition of President Biden’s Electoral College victory in the 2020 election. I’m very clear about the attack, how it differs from Trump. Some of the mob claimed to hang Mike Pence when they stormed the Capitol. Pence was in the Capitol at the time in his constitutional role overseeing Congressional approval, but he and members of Congress were moved to safety by Capitol Police after the building was razed.

During his run for the Senate, Bolduc appeared to embrace the former president’s unproven allegations that the 2020 election was “rigged.” Bolduc was among a group of retired generals who signed a letter questioning the legitimacy of the election.

During his final visit to Granite State, he headlined “Politics and Eggs.” This is a must-see for any potential or actual White House candidate.

Two days after staying in New Hampshire in August, Pence spent two busy days in Iowa. The former vice president’s itinerary included another must-see for White House hopefuls. It’s a visit to the Iowa State His Fair.
