Saying that there’s a huge vacuum of leadership in Congress, Don Bolduc has decided to run for the US Senate from NH. Sen Jeanne Shaheen is considered to be very vulnerable and is one of only four Democrats who aren’t running for president in 2020.
Bolduc is one of the groups of horseback soldiers who carried out a secret mission in Afghanistan and has won two awards for valor, five Bronze Stars, and two Purple Hearts. Hillary won NH in 016 but by only 3,000 votes. The problem is that Democrats import buses of voters from Massachusetts to help swing the vote in this swing state.
Brig. Gen. Bolduc announced his campaign at the VFW in Concord, New Hampshire on Monday and shared his record of service, outlining at the same time the need for a change in DC. He said that Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) by contrast has yet to serve as a leader in the Senate.
“We’re facing a crisis of leadership. Our leaders are not fighting for us, Senator Shaheen is one of them and if we don’t make a change here in New Hampshire nothing will change in Washington, DC,” Bolduc told Breitbart News.
Although Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire during the 2016 presidential election, the former Secretary of State only won the state by roughly 3,000 votes, leaving populist Republicans such as Bolduc the opportunity to unseat Sen. Shaheen during the 2020 election cycle.
After returning to New Hampshire, Bolduc worked as an advocate to fight the stigma and help treat those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Bolduc’s leadership on PTSDhas earned him the nickname of “Captain America” and “Everyone’s General” by fellow officers and soldiers.
Bolduc was raised in Laconia, New Hampshire and has three sons, is a grandfather to three, and lives in Stratham, New Hampshire, with his wife Sharon and his service dogVictor.
