Yet another former staff member from the Trump administration has launched a bid for a New Hampshire congressional seat. On Monday, Matt Mowers filed with the Federal Election Commission to challenge Democrat incumbent Chris Pappas.
However, the Republican candidate faces competition from a fellow White House staffer from the Trump-era Karoline Leavitt. Nonetheless, the former senior White House advisor said the people of New Hampshire are ready for new leadership after seeing the consequences of the far-left agenda.
“I ran last time, hoping to give a voice to a lot of voters,” he stated. “I’m just glad to see the enthusiasm stepping up. I think it speaks volumes about the energy in our party right now and the fact that we do need new leaders to go down to Washington, D.C. And so. I think it’s a great thing for our country and for our party.”
It’s time we restore conservative leadership in Washington and re-affirm our American values.
Join us for an announcement at Murphy’s in Manchester next week!
